HP IMC Virtual Application Networking Fabric Manager Software

Product overview

HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC) software is a modular comprehensive resource management platform. With its extensive device support, IMC software provides true end-to-end management for the entire network, as well as the entire operation cycle.

HP IMC Virtual Application Networking (VAN) Fabric Manager Software is an IMC module which simplifies the management of data center and Fibre Channel Storage Area Networks (SAN) fabrics. It provides a unified view of all of the network and storage devices in the data center fabric alongside fabric health to enable quick troubleshooting and pro-active management.

VAN Fabric Manager Software eliminates manual provisioning and allows you to easily configure Ethernet Virtual Interconnect (EVI), Shortest Path Bridging (SPB) or TRILL (Transparent Interconnect of Lots of Links) through the same graphical user interface used to automate, monitor and manage your entire network. You will gain a better understanding of workload mobility through VAN Fabric Manager Software since it reports critical information, such as the longest VM duration and allows you to visualize the migration of VM through the virtualized network. With an optional add-on license, data center network management can be extended to physical and virtual FCSANs fabrics with FCoE management, simplifying the configuration of FCoE in the SAN and vSAN.
  • Delivers unified SPB and TRILL management
  • Manages across geographically dispersed data centers (DCI/EVI)
  • Offers VMware vMotion playback
  • Provides unified data center bridging (DCB), DCBx, FCoE converged management
  • Unified networking and FC SAN fabric management
