  2. 2. The Data Center Crisis Exploding growth and complexity • Servers DOUBLING every 5 years* • Network Devices DOUBLING every 2 years* • Terabytes of Storage DOUBLING every 1 year* Spiraling management costs • $2 – $3 spend on management for every $1 spend on hardware* Shortage of management talent • 45% projected shortage of qualified DC talent by 2015** *IDC - Worldwide IT consolidation market opportunity 2006 **AFCOM Data Center Institute
  3. 3. Why HP Business Service Automation? Comprehensive service-aware automation Automate the entire data center with an integrated view of the business services – across clients, applications, servers, networks, storage, physical and virtual systems Significant improvement in operations efficiency Automate global discovery, provisioning, patching, configuration, compliance… Business continuity and availability Establish continuity, availability, disaster recovery, disaster tolerance and data protection Reduce IT costs Dramatic improvement in infrastructure-to-admin ratios Compliance and Security Enforce and automate auditing and reporting on SOX, HIPAA, PCI, ITIL and security policies
  4. 4. Our approach to data center automation 1 Automate elements Comprehensive automation for networks, 1 servers or storage, spanning all tasks from Links to provisioning and change management to IT service compliance enforcement and reporting Automate management networks 2 2 Automate common IT processes 3 Establish runbook automation for Automate common and repeatable IT processes Automate Runbook business servers 2 automation 4 across all infrastructure tiers, IT groups services (Data center + client) and systems 3 2 Automate 3 Automate the data center storage Links to Links to Integrated automation of all aspects of change, business deploying and managing applications, configuration service and release management servers, networks, storage and common processes across the entire data center 4 Automate business services Automate the entire business service with continuous control of each phase of the service lifecycle, across the data center and client end points, from automated operations to monitoring and ticketing 11 December 4 2008
