Hewlett-Packard wants to make it easier to manage a data center full of blades. At the Oracle OpenWorld conference in San Francisco Nov. 12, HP executives will detail updates to its BladeSystem C-class infrastructure that include new ways to manage virtual environments across thousands of individual blades within a data center.
HP, based in Palo Alto, Calif., will also detail a new power management rack that it says will help control the flow of electricity to a data center, while promising to cut down on cabling and cooling costs. All of these advancements fit into HP's Adaptive Infrastructure initiative, which the company has been trying to advance for more than a decade. The goal of Adaptive Infrastructure is to use HP's various software, hardware and service offerings to look at the data center in a more holistic way and give customers a single, integrated infrastructure that can be changed to meet the needs of a company.
