HP OneView Deployment & Management Guide, your GPS to Converged Infrastructure

Navigating infrastructure can be challenging (which in itself might be the understatement of the year).  Like the GPS I recently used while attending HP Discover in Barcelona, think of HP OneView Deployment and Management Guide as your GPS to building a converged infrastructure. When you need to be pointed in the right direction, open this guide and find your way.  The HP OneView Deployment and Management guide is designed with administrators in mind because it is task oriented.  The Deployment and Management Guide has two major sections.  The first section is Deployment.  This section walks administrators through setting up a new OneView appliance.  The second section is a collection of use cases that an administrator may need to do on a day to day basis.  This handy reference will guide administrators through the new methodologies within HP OneView.

But why choose?  The HP OneView platform enhances productivity, increases ROI and makes it easier to manage your infrastructure so you can  meet business demands.

What if your data center search tools were as easy to use as searching the web?

Guest blog by Gary Thome, Vice President and Chief Engineer HP BladeSystem

When you search for directions to the latest hot restaurant, it’s a simple matter of typing in a few words or, increasingly, speaking a few commands, to locate what you need. When it comes to navigating your data center, though, it’s a different story.
