HP and Microsoft launch new integrated BladeSystem management offering

As HP continues the vision of "Open Systems" for the Adaptive Infrastructure and choice for our partners and customers, we announced an new integrated offering with Microsoft.

In a press release today:

"HP today announced HP Insight Control suite for Microsoft® System Center (HP ICE-SC), the industry’s first integrated management environment to lower infrastructure costs and improve uptime of HP server and Microsoft software environments.

By integrating the server management features of HP ProLiant and HP BladeSystem into Microsoft System Center consoles, administrators can gain increased visibility into, and greater control of, their technology environments. This enhanced visibility into the health of IT systems enables a faster response in the event of server failure, reducing the risk of downtime. By automating server deployments and updates, administrative productivity is also greatly improved.
A crucial part of the HP Adaptive Infrastructure strategy is to provide the strongest management experience for HP ProLiant and BladeSystem servers. The new HP ICE-SC enables administrators to monitor and respond to software and hardware events through the Microsoft System Center consoles. This includes:




  • Server health warnings and prefailure condition alerts with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) 2007;


  • Proactive virtual machine management using Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) 2008; and


  • Enhanced configuration management via Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2007.

HP ICE-SC also provides more than 25 performance and resource optimization tips for Microsoft SCVMM, including recommended actions for host system alerts and events. Greater insight into the relationship between host and virtual machines allows administrators to resolve potential server performance problems to maintain maximum uptime."
