Agile infrastructure management for accelerating IT service delivery
HP servers power the compute requirements of customers of all sizes around the world, from the top stock exchanges to the neighborhood travel agency, and everywhere in between. All of these customers have one thing in common– regardless of the size of their IT infrastructure – and that is the need for it to be fast to setup, easy to operate, control and support, economical when it comes to space and energy, all while keeping a cap on IT costs. That is exactly why HP provides a comprehensive set of server management capabilities specifically designed to manage the lifecycle for the HP Server portfolio – from towers, to racks to blades. We call it HP Server Management.
In addition to providing server administrators with the tools to drive day-to-day operations, HP Server management offers out-of-the-box integration with leading enterprise management solutions from HP, VMware, Microsoft and RedHat, with altogether over 65 points of integration that help eliminate complexity and enable a “single pane of glass” experience.
HP Server Management is architected to include an open, industry-standard API architecture (REST APIs) that enables IT staff to quickly and securely customize server configuration and provisioning, and at the same time provide a common interface for integration to HP Helion and cloud ecosystems like OpenStack.
In short, HP Server Management is an agile infrastructure management solution for accelerating IT service delivery and support. Delivering three core capabilities:
- HP OneView. A software-defined, converged management platform that automates the approach to on-site infrastructure provisioning at enterprise-class datacenters
- HP Insight Online. A support automation tool, with the ease and simplicity of the cloud that helps customers quickly and efficiently diagnose, monitor and resolve support issues.
- HP Embedded Management. An essential collection of embedded management and scripting tools that are provided with every HP Server to help increase server administrator productivity.
And don’t just take our word for it, our customers and the industry watchers agree that HP management delivers useful innovation that lowers the time, complexity and cost of everyday infrastructure management. For example:
- HP has shipped over 9 million copies of our infrastructure management.
- HP server management has been recognized by the industry as innovative and breakthrough – see the award from Frost & Sullivan
- HP Partners praise the benefits of HP management in helping them efficiently support our mutual customers.
Time is money… As a global provider of business and entertainment gaming-solutions, we need make sure our systems are set up for our customers as fast as possible. We’re excited about the software advantages of these new HP ProLiant Gen9 servers with UEFI and Intelligent Provisioning…. We effectively reduced server deployment time by 30%.

Licensing terms and conditions
HP Licenses have the following summarized terms and conditions for use. HP Licensed are 'per physical system'. (E.g. Ten physical servers would require ten Insight Control licenses, but one physical server with ten virtual machines only requires one Insight Control license.) License activation of a product for its intended target system is typically accomplished by entering a 25-digit license activation key. Once you activate your production software license, it's good for the life of the target system (i.e. a perpetual license). You may not transfer the activated product and license from one target to another. Product upgrades and updates are included in the HP Technical Support & Updates. The term of the support and updates can be extended to 3-, 4-, or 5-years by purchasing the appropriate Care Pack from HP.
After purchase, product registration is required to obtain the applicable license activation keys. More information is available here. Refer to the product End User License Agreement (EULA) included with your software for specific license terms and conditions for more information or contact your sales representative or reseller for more information.
