With version 4.1 of OneView, Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s IT infrastructure management software platform, the company has added major enhancements such as the ability to do updates clusterwide on a rolling basis. This is a critical change, said Alan Rogers, chief technology officer at Ottawa, Ontario-based Stoneworks Technologies. “Not having to do the updates on a per-host basis is huge,” Rogers said. “For HPE, this is a big differentiator from its competitors.” OneView 4.1 provides for 50 percent faster firmware updates to HPE’s Gen10 ProLiant servers. The version also adds enhanced Microsoft support, including support for Microsoft Azure Stack Log Analytics and improved integration with Microsoft System Center.
