Previously I’ve covered HP Storage Management Pack but now there is another HP Storage tool that integrates with System Center component named HP Storage UI add-in for System Center Virtual Machine Manager. These two tools combined together represent HP Storage Management Integration with Microsoft System Center.
So what is exactly this new tool:
HP Storage UI add-in for System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) enables enhanced integration of SCVMM and HP Storage providing our customers a single pane-of-glass monitoring view of physical, virtual and cloud environments. It automates HP Storage management and provides an integrated view of VMs and associated storage resources.
HP Storage supports all SMI-S-enabled functionality introduced in SCVMM 2012 – Storage Discovery, Storage Classification, Storage Provisioning and Storage Allocation.
HP Storage also provides a new HP Storage UI Add-in for enhanced monitoring, provisioning and control of HP Storage in SCVMM environment.
Personally I haven’t the chance to try it but from what I’ve seen from demos and screenshots it is definitely worth a try if you have one of the following storages:
- HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage – HP 3PAR StoreServ 10000 Storage, HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage, F-Class, T-Class, HP 3PAR OS 3.1.1 and 3.1.2
- HP StoreOnce Backup – HP StoreOnce Backup: HP D2D 2000, D2D 4000 and HP StoreOnce B6000 Gen 3 Backup Systems
