Schneider Electric announces DCIM Integration with HP OneView

Integration provides holistic view of IT service delivery and infrastructure capacity management.

By Ellie Burns

Schneider Electric has announced the integration of its data centre infrastructure management (DCIM) solution, StruxureWare for Data Centers, with the HP OneView infrastructure management platform.

The integration will enable server, storage and networking system visibility for converged IT and facilities management personnel.

"Building upon StruxureWare’s existing integration with HP’s Universal Configuration Management Database (uCMDB), this integration provides simultaneous visibility into asset data for both IT and facilities managers, enabling a key next step in automated service deliveries and data centre service optimisation," said Soeren Jensen, Vice President, Software and Managed Services, Schneider Electric.

"We’re proud to be the first to integrate our StruxureWare for Data Centers DCIM solution with the HP OneView platform and continue on the path towards holistic management of IT and facilities."

The StruxureWare for Data Centers and HP OneView integration allows bidirectional, live communications between the two platforms to eliminate operational silos between IT and facilities.

This allows for a holistic view of, and control over, IT service delivery and infrastructure capacity management. It also saves time and minimises human error with the ability to share data between platforms.

Enterprise data centres and collocation providers will also benefit from creating services with complete visibility of dependencies on physical infrastructure. Data centres can also determine the true cost of ownership for services by being able to associate workloads to watts.

"We are excited about the momentum generated through Schneider Electric’s collaboration with HP ConvergedSystems and HP Software. It’s an important element for businesses looking to benefit from the New Style of IT across the data centre and facilities lifecycle."
