Do you spend countless hours manually tracking assets in your data center? HP Location Discovery Services is the first solution that merges the physical rack with IT equipment to provide automated location awareness of installed servers. HP Intelligent Series Racks with the HP Location Discovery option installed provides detailed location information to ProLiant Gen8 Server series units to help you track new installations and equipment moves.
Upon installation the servers Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) queries and records the rack identifier as well as the exact U location of the server in the rack. This information can then be forwarded to other systems such as the HP Intelligent PDUs, used to automatically update HP OneView and Insight Control.
This saves time in configuring hardware and software to manage the data center while reducing constant manual updates and the associated human errors that can slow resolution to issues and even cause down time and loss of business.
New 14U and 22U Location Discovery Kits for 11000G2 Series racks extend the capabilities across all rack sizes.
Location Discovery enabled systems within the rack can reduce data center operating costs and reduce human errors from inefficient manual documentation processes.
Accurate location information combined with graphical power, temperature, and performance data in Insight Control can optimize workloads across the data center.
