Are you adopting virtualized workloads (such as NFV) in your network infrastructure, but wrestling with the complexity of managing a highly-distributed and heterogeneous multi-vendor environment?
The HPE Resource Aggregator for Open Distributed Infrastructure Management™ delivers a standards-based resource aggregation capability enabling both enterprises and communications service providers (such as 5G wireless network operators) to simplify management of multi-vendor, heterogeneous, distributed compute, storage, and data networking infrastructure with the scalability and flexibility that such deployments require.
Acting as an abstraction layer between deployed systems' diverse proprietary and legacy management interfaces and a customer's preferred industry standard DMTF Redfish®-compliant management systems, the HPE Resource Aggregator for Open Distributed Infrastructure Management enables simplified, hierarchical management and orchestration of distributed network infrastructure.
The HPE System Management Homepage (SMH) consolidates and simplifies the management of ProLiant and Integrity servers running Microsoft Windows or Linux, or HPE 9000 and HPE Integrity servers running HP-UX 11i. By aggregating data from HPE Insight Management Agents and other tools, SMH provides a secure and intuitive interface to review in-depth hardware configuration and status data, performance metrics, system thresholds and software version control information. SMH can also be used to access the HPE Lights-Out Management processor on ProLiant and Integrity servers. SMH is part of the Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) or the Integrity Support Pack (ISP), and can be extended to meet specific system management requirements by integrating additional plug-in tools. SMH is easy to install and can be extended to meet specific system management requirements by integrating additional HPE plug-in management tools that include HPE Online Diagnostics and HPE Software Version Control Agents.
Are you looking for a way to automate your Hewlett Packard Enterprise server configuration tasks using Windows PowerShell? HPE Scripting Tools for Windows PowerShell is a powerful set of utilities that can be used to perform various configuration tasks on HPE Servers. Windows PowerShell is Microsoft's task automation framework, consisting of a command-line shell and associated scripting language built on the .NET Framework.
HPE Scripting Tools for Windows PowerShell provides a simplified and consistent infrastructure management experience. They follow the standard PowerShell syntax and scripting model, making it easy for customers to incorporate these functions into their administrative scripts.
Are you spending too much time and money on server updates? The Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) and Smart Update Manager (SUM) combine to create the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Smart Update Technology to solve the problem of time-consuming, expensive, and error-prone updates. The SPP is an comprehensive collection of firmware, drivers, and system software tested together as a single solution stack used for updating your HPE ProLiant servers, HPE Synergy, and HPE BladeSystem infrastructures. The SPP Custom Download allows you to reduce the size of the SPP by excluding firmware and drivers for operating systems and server models that are not needed. Select the SPP Custom Download to begin creating your custom service pack update. With the SPP, Hewlett Packard Enterprise tests the firmware, driver, and system software updates, so you don't have to. Together the SPP and SUM perform online updates 3X faster with 93% less downtime.1
Are you spending too much time and money on server updates?
Smart Update Manager (SUM) and the Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) combine to create the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Smart Update Technology to solve the problem of time-consuming, expensive, and error-prone updates.
SUM is an innovative tool for keeping the firmware, drivers, and system software of HPE ProLiant, HPE Synergy, HPE BladeSystem and HPE Moonshot infrastructures and associated options up to date and secure.
SUM discovers the installed hardware and the current versions of firmware, drivers, and system software, provides an update recommendation, and
applies the updates in an efficient order to reduce impact on operations.
SUM provides a variety of interfaces for applying updates, so you can pick the interface that meets your needs. Update the servers while they are offline or online, locally or remotely via web browser, or interactively or automatically.
The Scripting Toolkit (STK) for Windows and Linux provide flexible scripting to automate steps in HPE ProLiant server configurations to scale high volumes of server deployments rapidly and cut deployment time substantially. The STK includes a modular set of utilities and documentation that describe how to apply the scripting tools for an automated deployment process.
It delivers hands-off, unattended installation for high volume HPE ProLiant server deployments and is integrated with other management tools such as Integrated Lights Out (iLO), BIOS and is based on Intelligent Provisioning. Its "Rack and Go" approach frees up scarce IT resources, delivers consistent server configurations across multiple servers, and integrates into popular methods for operating system deployment. Past versions were based on SmartStart, and were known as the SmartStart Scripting Toolkit.
Are you a HPE OneView or HPE iLO Amplifier Pack customer who needs to update your server?
The Smart Update Tools (SUT) are a SUM extension that enables HPE OneView and HPE iLO Amplifier Pack to stage, schedule and apply updates automatically to reduce IT operations.
SUT is an operating system (OS) utility that provides the ability to perform online firmware and/or driver updates via the HPE iLO management network without the need for OS credentials.
SUT supports Windows®, Linux® (Red Hat® and SUSE®), and VMware ESXi™.
Having problems finding a single scripting tool that provides management automation among the server components? Being challenged with many tools, remote management vulnerabilities and scripting limitation? Hewlett Packard Enterprise offers you a single scripting tool called RESTful Interface Tool designed for HPE ProLiant Gen9 & Gen10 Servers with flexible and simpler scripting server automation at scale for rapid deployments to help cut time substantially. The RESTful Interface Tool lets you configure, monitor and update various server components. The tool is agnostic to the iLO RESTful API that is Redfish API conformant with no FW or schema download dependencies, allowing management of iLO, BIOS, Smart Array and firmware updates
Wondering how to get your HPE ProLiant Server up and running with improved security using industry standard interfaces?
Each HPE ProLiant Gen9 and Gen10 Server supports Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI). This industry standard is a set of interfaces between the system firmware, the operating system, and various components of the system firmware that deliver enhanced security benefits for the HPE Servers.
The HPE ProLiant system BIOS is a UEFI solution based on the latest UEFI Specification revisions. In addition, most HPE ProLiant Gen9 and Gen10 Server are UEFI Class 2 solution, supporting both Legacy BIOS boot and UEFI boot modes, providing users the flexibility to switch between modes. UEFI supports iLO RESTful API and is Redfish API conformant.
Tired of configuring each Virtual Connect module over and over?
HPE Virtual Connect Enterprise Manager centralizes connection management and workload mobility for HPE Blade Servers that use Virtual Connect to access LANs, SANs and converged network infrastructures. It increases productivity and reduces operating costs by allowing data centers to respond faster to workload and configuration changes.
Built on the Virtual Connect architecture, it provides a central console to administer network address assignments, perform group-based configuration management, and rapidly deploy and move server connections for 250 Virtual Connect domains (up to 1,000 BladeSystem enclosures and 16,000 blade servers).
Virtual Connect and Virtual Connect Enterprise Manager create a change-ready infrastructure allowing system administrators to add, replace and recover servers across the data center in minutes without impacting network configurations or availability.
