HPE Resource Aggregator for Open Distributed Infrastructure Management
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 Open Distributed Infrastructure Management Resource Aggregator 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 Open Distributed Infrastructure Management Resource Aggregator enables simplified, hierarchical management and orchestration of distributed network infrastructure.
- Simplifies composition, orchestration, and management of distributed resources.
- Complies with open Redfish® standards.
- RESTful APIs simplify integration with northbound management and orchestration systems.
- Modular, plugin-based architecture enables support of third party infrastructure components (compute, network, and storage).
Simplified Integration with Management and Orchestration Systems
The HPE Open Distributed Infrastructure Management Resource Aggregator's RESTful APIs and support for the Redfish® data model allow easier integration with existing management and orchestration systems.
Industry standards-based approach maps data center resources 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 Open Distributed Infrastructure Management Resource Aggregator and its iLO plugin can be managed using existing container management tools.
Open, Standards-Compliant, and Vendor-Neutral
The HPE Open Distributed Infrastructure Management Resource Aggregator complies with the industry standard DMTF Redfish® data model.
The HPE Open Distributed Infrastructure Management Resource Aggregator supports multi-vendor deployments. Plugins translate proprietary and legacy management protocols into an open, JSON-based RESTful API.
The HPE Open Distributed Infrastructure Management Resource Aggregator is based on an open source industry initiative (of which Hewlett Packard Enterprise is a founding member).
The HPE Open Distributed Infrastructure Management Resource Aggregator features a plugin-based architecture that allows support of other vendors' infrastructure components.
The plugin for HPE iLO leverages the functionality of HPE iLO 5 (v2.10 or later) built into Hewlett Packard Enterprise servers to enhance the manageability of those servers in a distributed infrastructure environment.
The HPE Composable Fabric Manager (CFM) plugin enhances the manageability of network fabric based on select Aruba switches.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise provides a detailed Plugin Developer's Guide to provide developers with a set of guidelines for creating plugins to work with the HPE Open Distributed Infrastructure Management Resource Aggregator.
