From InfoWorld: Hewlett-Packard on Thursday added tools for orchestration and recovery to its Adaptive Infrastructure portfolio. And, as with most enterprise-class technology announcements these days, HP said that the new tools promise IT cost-savings and reduced risks.
HP enhanced its Insight Dynamics VSE, software for managing physical and virtual resources alike, with the new Insight Orchestration and Insight Recovery tools, the company said.
"We're starting to integrate a lot of the pieces of technology already in datacenters to drive down costs and allow greater agility for our customers," says Duncan Campbell, vice president of Adaptive Infrastructure at HP. "The reason we have this sense of urgency is because too much of IT budgets goes toward support and maintenance."
Insight Orchestration enables administrators to create templates for infrastructure needed to run different applications on servers, including associated storage and network resources, and includes a portal and workflow engine for implementation, HP said. Insight Recovery, meanwhile, is for restarting applications running at a remote backup site and is integrated with HP's StorageWorks Enterprise Virtual Array.
