Key Features

Simplified Integration with Management and Orchestration Systems

The HPE Resource Aggregator for Open Distributed Infrastructure Management's RESTful APIs and support for the Redfish® data model allow easier integration with current and future management and orchestration systems.

Its industry standards-based approach maps data center resources - compute, storage, and Ethernet fabric - onto a DMTF Redfish® data model that can be easily automated and managed.

Deployed as containers in the customer's virtualized data center environment, the HPE Resource Aggregator for Open Distributed Infrastructure Management and its iLO plug-in can themselves be managed using common Kubernetes container management tools.

Open, Standards-Compliant, and Vendor-Neutral

The HPE Resource Aggregator for Open Distributed Infrastructure Management complies with the industry standard DMTF Redfish® data model.  Its Redfish-compliant northbound RESTful API can be utilized by a variety of management, automation and orchestration applications and tools.

The HPE Resource Aggregator for Open Distributed Infrastructure Management supports multi-vendor deployments. Plugins translate proprietary and legacy management protocols into a JSON-based RESTful API based on the Redfish schema.

The HPE Resource Aggregator for Open Distributed Infrastructure Management is based on code from the open source LF Networking ODIM project (of which Hewlett Packard Enterprise is a founding member).

Open source plugins from the LF Networking ODIM project extend multi-vendor compatibility. The HPE Resource Aggregator for Open Distributed Infrastructure Management has been validated with open source plugins for Dell servers, Lenovo servers, and Cisco ACI Ethernet fabric.

Extensible Architecture

The HPE Resource Aggregator for Open Distributed Infrastructure Management features a plugin-based architecture that allows support for HPE and other vendors' infrastructure components (compute, storage, and Ethernet fabric).

The HPE iLO plugin leverages the functionality of HPE iLO 5 (v2.60 or later) built into Hewlett Packard Enterprise ProLiant servers, to enhance the manageability of those servers in a distributed infrastructure environment.

The Aruba Fabric Composer (v6.1.2) includes a plugin that works with the HPE Resource Aggregator for Open Distributed Infrastructure Management to enhance the manageability of network fabric based on select Aruba switches.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise publishes a detailed Plugin Developer's Guide to provide developers a set of guidelines for creating new plugins to work with the HPE Resource Aggregator for Open Distributed Infrastructure Management.
