Hewlett-Packard this week introduced offerings that it says improve visibility into the relationship between software and physical, virtual and cloud IT infrastructure, enabling organizations to speed cloud and virtualization project delivery.

The HP Configuration Management Systems (CMS) 10, includes new HP Universal Discovery software, which offers automated discovery capabilities to support the deployment and management of physical, virtual and cloud projects.

Automated discovery capabilities allow companies to reduce the costs and risks associated with service disruptions, as well as decrease the time spent on manual discovery by more than 50%, HP says.

HP CMS 10 is designed to enable organizations to save time by quickly discovering software and hardware inventory; speed time to deployment through a simplified user interface and enhanced scalability; more easily manage multiple client environments within a single HP Universal Configuration Management Database with improved security, automation and scalability; and reduce costs by automatically locating and cataloging new technologies related to network hardware, open-source middleware, storage, enterprise resource planning (ERP) and infrastructure software providers.

With the growing adoption of cloud computing, HP says, organizations are under increasing pressure to deliver new services and scale existing ones. The complexities of cloud-based infrastructures, combined with a lack of infrastructure visibility, have hampered organizations’ ability to efficiently and predictably manage IT performance, it says.
