Schneider Electric has integrated its data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solution, StruxureWare™ for Data Centers with the HP OneView infrastructure management platform. This certified integration provides converged IT and facilities management personnel with visibility into an organization’s server, storage and networking systems for service management.

The integration between StruxureWare for Data Centers and HP OneView enables bidirectional, live communications between the two platforms to eliminate operational silos between IT and facilities. Data center and facilities owners and operators gain visibility into server, storage and network management, as well as service creation, providing a holistic view of and control over IT service delivery and infrastructure capacity management. Additionally, with the ability to share data between platforms, time is saved, OPEX reduced and the likelihood of human error is drastically minimized.

With this integration, enterprise data centers and colocation providers will not only benefit from the holistic management of both IT services and physical infrastructure within the data center, but can now create services with complete visibility of dependencies on physical infrastructure. Data centers can also determine the true cost of ownership for services by being able to associate workloads to watts. These features enable enhanced time to market for service delivery, as well as increased uptime and reliability.
