The company hopes that the updated suite will reduce much of the complexity of virtualised server systems. The update features improved management of virtualised storage area networks, and the ability to provision servers without the need for downtime.
"Unlike other vendors that focus only on virtualised infrastructure or individual infrastructure silos, HP offers an integrated server, storage, network, client and process automation solution to co-ordinate the deployment of IT applications in virtual and physical infrastructures," said Michel Feaster, HP's senior director of business service automation software products.
The company is also planning to offer a subscription service for the Business Service Automation suite which will offer support and best practice tips for administrators running virtualised server systems.
