HP Service Health Reporter and Service Health Optimizer: dynamic analysis and virtual capacity optimization

SHR_thumb.jpgWhen the infrastructure that supports a business service is dynamic, understanding the relationship between end-user experience and the resources that support the business service at any point in time becomes extremely challenging. Technologies like VMware vMotion make tasks like reporting on resource utilization or analyzing why end-user experience degraded when changes occurred in a virtual server farm increasingly complex. Trying to plan for changes within the virtual infrastructure while protecting business service levels can be nearly impossible. This situation is increasingly common as more and more IT shops make use of dynamic virtualized environments and private cloud. This session will cover the requirements and challenges for reporting and planning that have been driven by the use of dynamic virtualized environments. In addition, presenters will introduce you to the HP approach to meeting these challenges using service-health-focused reporting and planning technologies, such as Service Health Reporter and Service Health Optimizer.

Service Health Reporter and Service Health Optimizer: tools for strategic capacity management and tactical decision making

SHO_thumb.jpgThe complexity of dynamic, virtualized environments makes it more important than ever to report the performance of infrastructure elements based on the business services they support and to correlate inconspicuous dependencies. Furthermore, datacenters have not yet been able to realize the full potential of virtualization due to low capacity utilization and poor consolidation ratios. Join the product team as we discuss two recently introduced solutions—HP Service Health Reporter and HP Service Health Optimizer. We’ll show you how Service Health Reporter combines data from all layers of your business-service hierarchy, including end-user data, middleware, VMs, and physical hosts, to give you a 360 degree view of your environment; and how Service Health Optimizer gives you comprehensive visibility and understanding of infrastructure capacity and utilization so you can identify VM sprawl and maximize resource utilization through VM sizing, placement recommendations, and forecasting.

See you at the show!
