Infrastructure momentum continues as Schneider Electric jumps into bed with HP

“IT and facilities partnerships are the core of converged management.”

Schneider Electric has become one of the first companies to join the HP Composable Infrastructure Partner Program, as revealed at HP Discover in Las Vegas last week.

Limited to third-parties certified to integrate with HP’s Composable Infrastructure API for infrastructure management that is native in HP OneView, the program aims to further broaden Schneider Electric’s portfolio of partnerships and alliances.

“Schneider Electric’s membership within the HP Composable Infrastructure Partner Program further solidifies our leadership in providing the comprehensive, end-to-end solutions data centre managers need to effectively and efficiently operate their facility,” says Shannon Sbar, Vice President, North American Channels and Global Alliances, APC by Schneider Electric.

“We are proud to be among the first set of partners in this program and look forward to expanding our collaboration and interoperability between StruxureWare for Data Centres and HP OneView.”

As one of a small number independent software vendors (ISVs) currently participating in the program, Schneider Electric’s inclusion builds on the existing integration of StruxureWare for Data Centre with HP OneView, announced last year.

The joint solution, which provides a connector between IT and facilities management, enables holistic management of IT service delivery, eliminating operational silos between IT and facilities.

With this holistic view of the data centre, Sbar claims that operators can determine the true cost of ownership for services by being able to associate workloads to watts.

Through the capabilities this integration provides, Sbar says data centre managers are enabled to make “better informed, educated business decision”s and operate with greater agility to deliver services quickly, which makes the data centre into a more a strategic business asset.

“IT and facilities partnerships are the core of converged management,” adds Rick Einhorn, VP of Technology Services Data Centre Consulting, HP.

“We are excited to build on the momentum generated through Schneider Electric’s integration with the HP OneView platform and uCMDB with the inclusion of Schneider Electric in this new program.”
