Card Glossary

“Cards” are unique analytics crafted by HPE CloudPhysics, IT Professionals, and Solution Providers, and are the foundation of all Collaborative Intelligence. Inside HPE CloudPhysics, you’ll work with cards, which form and focus the data-driven conversations between partners. Each card visualizes insights through charts and graphs, providing clear recommendations and enabling interactive exploration through slidebars, filters, and simply drilling down for more detail. They can be viewed, shared, added to a personal dashboard, and published to members of your team and partners. Cards can be packaged together into “Decks” to create themes for exploring a common topic and its use cases.

Wondering if there are critical knowledge base articles applicable to your environment? Are your clusters still configured according to the latest best practices, for things like HA and DRS? Do you have the proper redundancy in resources? HPE CloudPhysics constantly checks on these areas and alerts you and your ecosystem partners when action needs to be taken to ensure the health of the data center.
