Smart Collaboration Solution
The HPE CloudPhysics platform is designed to help IT professionals and their Go-to-Market Partners (VARs, MSPs, SIs, etc) engage in more productive partnerships. Whether the partnership is trying to optimize a virtual data center, transform a private cloud, or look to transition some workloads to public clouds, HPE CloudPhysics can help power IT professionals and solution providers to work better together, communicate more effectively, and simulate data center transformations before making any disruptive changes.
HPE CloudPhysics is an intuitive, easy-to-use SaaS application. It is rooted in a unique operational analytics platform that automatically identifies inefficiencies in the data center, suggests optimization opportunities, and simulates the introduction of transformational data center technologies without risk.
Start with Data
HPE CloudPhysics extracts configuration and resource utilization information from virtual environments—at the market’s most granular collection interval—for a wide array of data center objects, including Virtual Machines, Physical Servers, Storage Arrays, and Network Infrastructure. HPE CloudPhysics takes this extracted data and creates a always-up-to-date graph of the data center (all discovered objects, their relationships, and their interdependencies). Then it observes the resource utilization of each managed object, creating a detailed “fingerprint” of each—a view into the resources configured for each object, and also the resources it actually needs to support the business. These object fingerprints are then used to identify optimization opportunities, and also to simulate the migration of any set of workloads to a new infrastructure – a new set of servers, a new storage solution, a public cloud, etc.
Customized, Personalized Assessments
Once the infrastructure has been observed and fingerprinted, IT Pros and Solution Providers work together to assess the environment for a wide array of use cases:
- Data Center Optimization – use HPE CloudPhysics to proactively assess the existing environment, seeking targeted optimization opportunities. Storage Reclamation, VM Rightsizing, Cluster Optimization, Contention Discovery; all can be quickly and easily located using HPE Cloudphysics.
- Digital Transformation Simulation – before you purchase a new storage solution, implement a hyper-converged infrastructure, install a new cluster, or migrate to the cloud, use HPE CloudPhysics to simulate the move by mapping a grouping of workload fingerprints to the new environment, making sure you are properly sized before you move, and that the move will be cost-effective.
Explore & Optimize the Environment on an Ongoing Basis
After the initial assessment, keep HPE CloudPhysics installed so that both IT Professionals and Solution Providers can proactively:
- View and analyze the entire vSphere infrastructure, with aggregation summaries, rich filtering, and drill-down.
- View aggregate reports, configuration changes, and cluster performance – from all vCenters in one central location.
- Use best-practice health checks and a Knowledge Base Adviser service to continuously analyze your infrastructure for hidden risks.
- Build reports and analyses in minutes, not days – accessing the entire vSphere API plus unique custom objects created on the HPE CloudPhysics platform – without scripting or programming.
Start in 15 Minutes!
We’re SaaS, and it takes just 15 minutes to install our small, read-only virtaul appliance (the HPE CloudPhysics’ Observer). No hardware, no software, zero future maintenance.
