HP Moves Up the Management Stack

HP Moves Up the Management Stack

Last fall, HP acquired blade pioneer RLX and with it, its Control Tower management software. On Wednesday, the OEM unveiled the first HP-branded version of the software.

With the HP Control Tower, Linux BladeSystems admins have a new management option

HP Control Tower software delivers deployment and monitoring capabilities for Linux-based HP BladeSystem environments and features an easy-to-use, yet scalable, interface.

The management software is available only for "pure Linux customers," Lee Johns, director of velocity software for enterprise servers and storage, told ServerWatch. Future releases will focus on integration in the heterogeneous server room, as opposed to a pure Windows version, Johns added.

According to Johns, HP made few changes to the former RLX product. Among the modifications were: changes to the images to reflect HP products; integration with Systems Insight Manager, OpenView, and other HP systems management products; and optimization for HP's ProLiant blades.

Johns describes this a a move up the management stack for HP.

Functionality-wise, the product remains the same, boasting a simple set-up that takes less than 30 minutes to install and configure the management server; hardware monitoring and deployment functions in one console; and a variety of open-source tools bundled together to deliver greater ease of use and integration.

HP Control Tower is scheduled to begin shipping in May. It will be priced at $199 per server node managed.

HP Control Tower is being marketed as part of HP's unified infrastructure management software portfolio. It will be available as a stand-alone product and will also be able to co-exist with HP Systems Insight Manager, which ships standard with all HP server and storage systems.
