The HP StoreFront Analytics for VMware vCenter Operations Manager, an adapter for vCenter Operations Manager from VMware, relates virtual machines and datastores to volumes from HP 3PAR StoreServ storage systems. Administrators using HP StoreFront Analytics are able to visualize and analyze data from their HP 3PAR StoreServ storage array directly within vCenter Operations Manager.
StoreFront Analytics provides preconfigured dashboards that allow the vSphere administrator to easily get storage capacity information, optimize HP 3PAR StoreServ storage systems and enable comprehensive troubleshooting scenarios. These clear relationships between Virtual Machines, datastores, and storage increase, the vSphere administrator’s productivity, and ability to ensure outstanding quality of service.
HP StoreFront Analytics reports detailed health, capacity, and performance metrics for HP 3PAR StoreServ components including volumes, CPGs, storage systems, controllers, drive cages, disk drives, ports, and fans.
HP StoreFront Analytics is distributed as a management pack that installs directly in VMware vCenter Operations.
HP StoreFront Analytics includes a 60 day instant-on evaluation license. After 60 days the product will provide basic array health information at no charge, but requires a license for capacity and performance metrics.
