Why OneView is a true SDDC management tool

The goal of the software-defined datacenter (SDDC) is to liberate users from the restrictions of the underlying physical infrastructure, as they manage and consume IT services and applications. Unfortunately, realizing the vision of the software-defined datacenter runs into problems because there are hundreds of tools that monitor, administer and manage infrastructure, and these tools tend to be very focused on a particular product or technology. As a result operations teams continue to work in silos that remain focused only on servers, networks, storage, applications, etc.


HP OneView was designed tNo Silos.jpgo enable the software-defined data center, and the development team approached the definition and creation of the product from a unique perspective. OneView shifts the focus of infrastructure management from “devices” to “how people work”. It uses a consumer-inspired, intuitive interface that helps users work and collaborate in a much more natural, and streamlined way.


Industry experts and IT organizations are taking notice of this revolutionary approach. They are beginning to understand how HP OneView really empowers IT administrators, by enabling them to collaborate more effectively across domains of expertise to deliver standardized infrastructure services faster, with fewer errors and with reduced cost.
