In the journey from traditional IT to a hybrid cloud environment, business must first pass through areas of Automation. HPE’s IT Operations Management portfolio continues to improve and evolve its products to keep your IT team running efficiently and at lower costs.
New releases from the HPE Data Center Automation portfolio of products are here and I want to share the highlights that will help you. Read below to see what is new for Server Automation, Database and Middleware Automation, Operations Orchestration, and IT Operations Compliance.
Some of the use cases in SA 10.50 have been given a boost, providing better performance and scalability. 10.50 features better than native patching, providing more reliable and predictable operations at scale. Notable highlights include Windows and Linux patch performance security, integration with RH satellite v6, and specific performance and scalability for Core Affinity, Replications, and device expansion.
DMA 10.50 will release with updated component packs and workflows for integration with Operations Orchestration. Users will also have access to automated build process with Premium and Express editions for HPE Cloud Service Automation capsule sequential designs.
DMA 10.50 can now help you recover workflows faster by documenting DMA maintenance history, helping your error recovery efforts. It also includes mandates for AutoPass and Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2. Security improvements have also been made for Jython 7.2 runtime and will also feature support for Certificate Revocation Lists, keeping your team alert and ready for any environment changes.
The latest version of OO allows the user to choose the Central-RAS connectivity direction. This allows the user to initiate the connection in the zone which is most secure and efficient and overall, gives the user ultimate control.
Large RAS Environment Compatibility and Adaptability
For those with 100+ RASs in their environment, Operations Orchestration 10.60 will allow for simplified management in the most distributed and diverse of environments. In this new version, RAS’s can be upgraded automatically without the need to manually access the RAS’s machine, dramatically reducing the required downtime needed for updates.
Authoring: Flow Refractor
The latest version of Operations Orchestration will allow the flow author to seamlessly replace a sub-flow or operation with another, dramatically simplifying the process and increasing efficiency.
Windows 10 Compatible
With the rise in popularity of Windows 10 on workplace desktops, we wanted to ensure compatibility and functionality for this OS.
Whenever we talk compliance, reporting and provability is a must. That’s why our latest version ensures reporting via ITBA and allows for the mining, rendering, and filtering of massive data sets and also includes an actionable dashboard to continually monitor your environments on-demand.
Using these tools to reduce your costs and increase speed of services is key to your IT environment. Together these products provide a powerful solution to automate and orchestrate your entire infrastructure.
