Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced the launch of HPE Operations Bridge (OpsBridge) suite, analytics driven IT operations software that provides IT teams with a real-time dashboard view of hybrid application performance.

Powered by HPE Vertica, the HPE OpsBridge Suite automatically discovers, monitors and manages existing and cloud native applications and the hybrid environments they run in including � Microsoft Azuure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Docker, HPE Helion OpenStack®, and other OpenStack distributions.

“To keep pace with constantly evolving business environments, IT teams need tools that harness big data to optimize their fluid infrastructure landscape,” said Tony Sumpster, SVP and GM, IT Operations Management, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “HPE Operations Bridge Suite helps customers transform IT organizations from a cost function to a value creator by simplifying and automating IT operations, and gives unique real-time visibility to help executives make decisions faster.”

As businesses continue to move applications to the cloud, managing IT operations has become increasingly complex and fragmented. Organizations that are unable to deploy the right tools end up suffering from poor service delivery, operational performance declines, and increased operational costs, which can ultimately lead to customer churn and lost revenue.

HPE Operations Bridge Suite helps organizations understand and analyze 100 percent of their business, cloud, IoT and IT data from any source, any format, and any location - with extreme speed, security, and scale.

The HPE Operations Bridge Suite provides IT managers the real-time information, application status visibility and IT monitoring capabilities needed to deliver successful business outcomes. HPE Operations Bridge Suite leverages HPE Vertica to visualize IT infrastructure management from a single dashboard. Accessible via the cloud, the dashboard converts data across all sources to help business stakeholders and experts visualize the dependencies between IT and business performance. This empowers organizations with accurate and precise intelligence to help prioritize the most challenging and pertinent issues.

Key features and updates offered by HPE Operations Bridge Suite include:

- Supports new DevOps processes with Docker, OpenStack, AWS, and Microsoft Azure Integrations: Simplifies IT management processes with more than 100 third party integrations support by consolidating IT data from existing tools.

- Real-time business value dashboards: Tablet ready and customized to executive and operations needs showing business, IT and online data of virtually any type and source.

- Big data analytics powers automated correlation: Leverages HPE Vertica to accelerate root cause detection by providing insight into past data that pinpoints system event location and can predict subsequent events.

- Enhanced automation levels for IT management operation: Decreases the need for manual operation using automated scripts for complex workflows.

- User and system collaboration with ChatOps: Integrates with chat products like Slack, HipChat for corrective actions, status updates, incident creation and automated remediation.

The HPE Operations Bridge Suite integrates Operations Manager i (OMi), OMi Management Packs, Business Value Dashboards, Operations Bridge Reporter, Operations Analytics, Operations Orchestration, Automated Service Modeler, and HPE Cloud Optimizer and leverages HPE Vertica to analyze data generated from multiple tools, locations, and devices.

The suite is available now as a standalone offering and integrated with HPE Helion Cloud Suite. The suite is also integrated with HPE OneView to provide comprehensive infrastructure coverage. Further HPE Operations Bridge Suite updates will be released later this year.

HPE Software Services offers an Agile Operations Bridge service to help customers rethink, retool and modernize their Operations Bridge to continue delivering value in the digital era.

Performance monitoring is an old problem. As technology has advanced, we've had to evolve how we monitor applications. Initially, performance monitoring largely involved sending ICMP messages to start troubleshooting a down or slow application. Applications have gotten much more complex, so this is no longer enough. Now we need to know not just whether an application is broken, but why it broke. So APM has had to evolve over the years for us to get there. But how did this evolution take place, and what happens next? Let's find out ...

If you have deployed a Java application in production, you've probably encountered a situation where the application suddenly starts to take up a large amount of CPU. When this happens, application response becomes sluggish and users begin to complain about slow response. Often the solution to this problem is to restart the application and, lo and behold, the problem goes away — only to reappear a few days later. A key question then is: how to troubleshoot high CPU usage of a Java application? ...

Operations are no longer tethered tightly to a main office, as the headquarters-centric model has been retired in favor of a more decentralized enterprise structure.

Key to the success of the decentralized enterprise model is a new generation of collaboration and communication tools ...
