HP has upgraded its Network Management Center (NMC) software to version 9.1, adding network monitoring and fault management software and the ability to scale to the largest of networks.
NMC 9.1 adds multi-tenancy capability and security groups that can be put in separate data silos, and will scale from 25,000 to two million network nodes, the firm said. The system recognises thousands of pieces of network hardware from around 50 manufacturers.
"The portfolio of products and solutions to manage network devices from end to end is huge," Ashish Kuthiala, director of product marketing for NMC at HP, told V3.co.uk.
"This holistic length and breadth of network management isn't offered by anyone else in this space."
This level of control is essential for diagnostics, according to Kuthiala, as it allows IT managers to quickly isolate and rectify faults with minimal downtime.
Any loss of office functions or e-commerce facilities needs to be rectified as quickly as possible, and oversight of the network is key, said Kuthiala. This extends to faulty reporting, particularly in cloud environments.
In order to avoid over-reporting NMC 9.1 has improved filters, which cut incident reports from 12,000 to 400 on a test system, according to HP.
