HP Innovates New Container-Based Deployment for DevOps Customer

Hewlett Packard Enterprise Software revealed its new containerized versions of its HPE IT Operations Management (ITOM) offerings to help customers maximize the potential of DevOps methodologies. These suites – Hybrid Cloud Management, Data Center Automation, Operations Bridge, and IT Service Management Automation are deployed with built-in, open source container technology from Docker and Kubernetes. Customers will be able to improve their DevOps team and manage their private and public cloud infrastructure more effectively using the four ITOM suites.

The analytics-driven ITOM suites will offer customers the ability to grow their business with industry-leading deployment, update and scale-out capabilities. HP has promoted its container-based virtualization technology and has also added a number of features to help organizations deploy and manage their container-based applications at scale. “The world of IT Operations is experiencing unprecedented growth and complexity,” said Tom Goguen, vice president and general manager, IT Operations Management, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “IT organizations need to be able to respond to business needs and deliver results quickly, while managing regulatory and operational compliance. Over the past year, we have revamped our portfolio by moving away from point products to integrated solutions, and are delivering new innovative capabilities such as analytics and ChatOps on a quarterly basis. Our new containerized suites simplify the day-to-day operations and deliver unprecedented time to value, enabling ITOps to run at the speed of DevOps.”
