  • KEY POINTS: By combining HP’s advanced management capabilities with VMware management software, customers get the best management suite for both physical and virtual environments. Independently, they will work but will not provide the full solution. With Systems Insight Manager (SIM), HP provides a best-in-class management platform for physical servers with strong add-on functionality for specific tasks. With VMware Virtual Center you get a best-in-class virtual management suite. But you don’t get the ability to manage and associate the virtual machines with the physical environment. Together SIM, Virtual Center and the ProLiant Essential Virtual Machine Manager give a unified view of the physical and virtual worlds and the tools to associate across both. Together the tools also give you the ability to actively manage workloads to optimize resources across multiple physical servers. These management tools bring the capabilities of an adaptive infrastructure to today’s data center. In addition, HP and VMware provide the technology to manage the migration of a variety of physical to virtual environments easily. Avitage Item ID: {{0866965B-8E51-4D54-8466-5D9AA88D0696}}
