In one of my previous posts on the BSM blog, I talked about the case for integrating cloud monitoring into IT Management. The main driver for this integration is that you can now have a holistic view of all the virtual machines that run your hybrid cloud applications. It gives you the needed the end-to-end view for efficient performance, availability and capacity management. This is all possible in a single management console for your hybrid workload running on public and private cloud and in your traditional datacenter.
Earlier this month, HP announced HP Helion, a portfolio of cloud products and services that enables you to build, manage and consume workloads in hybrid IT environments. HP Helion incorporates existing HP cloud offerings and new OpenStack® technology–based products.
HP OMi Management Packs are a simplified, next-generation, end-to-end monitoring solution for infrastructure and application infrastructure. With automated discovery and deployment, simplified configuration and out of the box content, OMi Management Packs provide capabilities to:
Proactively monitor application performance and availability
Troubleshoot your infrastructure
Remediate issues across the applications in your IT Environment
Out of the box content such as topology views, predefined thresholds, correlation rules, graphs and reports ensure that your application infrastructure is brought under the monitoring umbrella with minimal effort.
Monitor HP Helion Public Cloud with the HP OMi Management Pack
You can now download the HP OMi Management Pack for HP Cloud from HP Live network.
The management pack uses the HP Cloud RESTful API endpoints to retrieve topology and metric information for all your virtual machines running on HP Cloud. This allows you to see all of your HP Cloud Compute resources monitored in HP OMi in few minutes.
