HP BladeSystem Matrix is the industry's first Converged Infrastructure solution delivering the benefits of shared services today which makes it an ideal foundation for private cloud. It provisions complex infrastructure and applications in minutes instead of months and reduces total cost of ownership up to 56% versus traditional infrastructure.
HP BladeSystem Matrix is designed to simplify the deployment of applications and business services by delivering IT capacity through pools of readily deployed resources. The Insight Dynamics accelerates provisioning with HP Cloud Maps, optimizes IT capacity across physical and virtual environments and ensures predictable delivery and service levels. It includes an integrated service designer, self-service portal, auto-provisioning capabilities, and the tools to manage and optimize the resources pools as well as a recovery management solution. Through included Cloud APIs it can be easily customized to meet specific requirements enabling chargeback and billing, approval process integration, as well as other process automation capabilities.
4X increase in scalability for service-catalog-based auto-provisioning in 'federated mode'
With ever increasing virtual machine density and the need to manage more-and-more template-based workloads from a single-pane of glass, Matrix offers you the ability to orchestrate up to 6000 VMs using a 'federated CMS' environment (Central Management Server). Aggregated management results in more money saved, and greater efficiency.
Increased multi-tenancy and chargeback including user-group support and location code
Capacity planning and chargeback-ready tools now include the ability to sort by location or group so that chargeback tracking - or even links extended to billing - allows for better segmentation and control of multiple "tenants" within a cloud environment making tracking and chargeback more straight-forward with direct attribution to the actual users.
Accelerates automation of business applications so you can reliably and consistently fast track the implementation of service catalogs. Saves days or weeks of time architecting infrastructure and ensures that every time you implement an environment, it's consistent.
Support for 3PAR FC for Storage Provisioning Manager (in addition to XP & EVA)
Expanded support of storage pool management and easier to manage storage pools.
Support for managing an extended infrastructure from a Matrix CMSIn The Box
The HP Insight Dynamics extends its software functionality beyond HP BladeSystem Matrix across select HP ProLiant, HP Integrity and 3rd party servers. BladeSystem Matrix support for this extended infrastructure includes all of the capabilities of the HP Insight Dynamics with the exception of some physical server deployment and management capabilities. All capabilities of the HP Insight Dynamics are supported for HP BladeSystem servers with Virtual Connect.
