Business Service Management (BAC/BSM/APM/NNM)


More than everything monitoring, BSM provides the means to determine how IT impacts the bottom line. Its purpose and main benefit is to ensure that IT Operations are able to reactively and proactively determine where they should be spending their time to best impact the business. This covers event management to solve immediate issues, resource allocation and through reporting performance based on the data of applications, infrastructure, networks and from third-party platforms. BSM includes powerful analytics that gives IT the means to prepare, predict and pinpoint by learning behavior and analyzing IT data forward and backwards in time using Big Data Analytics applied to IT Operations.

Now available! Public cloud monitoring: The end-to-end hybrid view with HP OMi and HP Helion

hybrid.pngIn one of my previous posts on the BSM blog, I talked about the case for integrating cloud monitoring into IT Management. The main driver for this integration is that you can now have a holistic view of all the virtual machines that run your hybrid cloud applications. It gives you the needed the end-to-end view for efficient performance, availability and capacity management. This is all possible in a single management console for your hybrid workload running on public and private cloud and in your traditional datacenter.

 

Earlier this month, HP announced HP Helion, a portfolio of cloud products and services that enables you to build, manage and consume workloads in hybrid IT environments. HP Helion incorporates existing HP cloud offerings and new OpenStack® technology–based products.

 

With the HP Helion public Cloud monitoring service and the HP OMi Management Pack for HP Cloud, it is now possible to extend HP Operations Manager i (OMi) into an integrated Cloud monitoring solutions with a few clicks.

 

What are HP OMi Management Packs?

HP OMi Management Packs are a simplified, next-generation, end-to-end monitoring solution for infrastructure and application infrastructure. With automated discovery and deployment, simplified configuration and out of the box content, OMi Management Packs provide capabilities to:

  • Proactively monitor application performance and availability

Out of the box content such as topology views, predefined thresholds, correlation rules, graphs and reports ensure that your application infrastructure is brought under the monitoring umbrella with minimal effort.

The HP OMi Management Pack for HP Cloud enables you to monitor HP Public Cloud. This management pack includes capabilities to monitor HP Public Cloud Compute Services, which are provided as a part of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) from HP Public Cloud. Using the OMi Management Pack for HP Cloud, the user can discover, monitor, and detect performance issues, through events and performance graphs, of compute instances (Cloud VMs). Hybrid IT environments, which include on-premise data centers and public cloud can be managed using the OMi Management Pack for HP Cloud along with other Management Packs.
