A whitepaper on IBM’s HyperSwap


Checkout this whitepaper on IBM’s HyperSwap. The product is somewhat 1.0 and a little crippled (from my point of view anyway) but a large giant told me that most of the complicated stuff will be fixed in next version……


HP OneView – Quick overview


If you are looking for some information on HP OneView I recommend that you take a look at this site.

It is amazing how fast the development of OneView is progressing. I started using it back in January when we installed two HP C7000’s and 13 blades. Since then I have met a VP from the group which owns the OneView product inside HP, which was very clear on where HP was taking this product and how much HP is listening to the customers regarding features and development.

Now that version 2.0 is about to be released (FAQ here) I am really excited to see the new features, especially the features around storage (3PAR and the SAN). Having a single pane of glass to manage and monitor your whole infrastructure is great. The only “bad” thing is that of course OneView is mostly bound to HP products. It can monitor some third-party switches but with limited feature set.

Now, I guess we will have to wait for few more weeks for 2.0! 🙂
