Simple is beautiful: HP OneView for vCenter

By Jessica Burton, Marketing Manager, HP Software-Defined Storage


One of my biggest pet peeves is when something simple is made overly complex. Has this ever happened to you? Just the other day, my dentist overcharged me for a cleaning appointment and presented me with a three-page bill that included my Explanation of Benefits. Their “explanations” were murky at best and after much scrutiny I found items that shouldn’t have been included. Perhaps they hoped I would become overwhelmed and just move on with a clear distaste in my mouth from a costly visit. They got one thing right—I will be moving on…without them. 


I feel the same way about overly complicated storage management software. Day-to-day management procedures should not raise your blood pressure. Check out this blog for insights on our OneView for vCenter management tool.
