HP OneView

Bring it all together: admins, equipment, and processes

hp-oneview-1cloudroadJust as Facebook enables personal connections by bringing together friends, family, and

Life events, and just as eBay accelerates business by bringing together buyers and sellers,

HP OneView brings together your administrators, equipment, and processes to meet the three requirements for a new time of IT management.

1. A consumer-inspired experience

HP OneView replaces outdated management user interfaces, models, and methods with a
user experience driven by the way people expect to work in today’s world. HP OneView was built from the ground up to enable easy partnership among IT administrators and to increase productivity on day-to-day tasks, like system monitoring, troubleshooting, and updates. The platform is built for scale, so can achieve the same level of productivity no matter how big your environment grows.

2. A software-defined architecture

HP OneView is based on a software-defined architecture that enables your organization to move away from manual tasks and costly errors and into a world of rapid, repeatable operations. You can deploy resources at the push of a button—repeatedly, reliably, throughout the lifecycle. With a software-defined approach, a junior operator can execute like a senior engineer, even in the middle of the night.

3. An open, extensible platform

HP OneView provides an open development platform backed by an active community of
developers and published RESTful APIs. This RESTful technology, widely used in web development, makes it simple to customize your management platform and integrate it with other tools, both inside and outside your data center.
Ultimately, the capabilities of HP OneView don’t just improve the lives of your IT administrators. They go beyond that to enable your IT organization to deliver business value faster, at a lower cost, and with greater consistency and reliability

IBM leaves the x86 Server market


As of October 1st the anticipated deal worth over 2 billion dollars between Lenovo and Ibm was closed instantly propelling Lenovo in to the 3rd largest provider of x86-based server hardware, software and services.  In addition to this Lenovo will be looking to employ 6500 new colleagues across more than 60 countries.  Buying this server business compliments the company’s efforts to expand its own product base and will inherit the customers and brand whist in turn working to create its own new products for this audience.


IBM is effectively repeating history and getting out of the server market as it did with desktops and laptops rather than trying to compete with margins. The deal only covers IBM’s x86 server business and the company will retain control of its own power-based servers and hardware. Its research and development branch should be unaffected by this deal.


This in turn is freeing IBM from its long running relationship with Intel and allows them to focus on its software and service divisions.


x86 Market Share HP IBM CISCO DELL


This puts Lenovo in a position to compete with giants Hewlett-Packard and Dell and that they can grow their business venture in the same way that they did when IBM sold them the desktop and notepad PC business in 2005heir worldwide PC business.
