HP Containerized Data Center Infrastructure Monitoring Solution
The Global Data Center Services: Automation Team for Hewlett-Packard was tasked with providing a monitoring solution for a next-generation I.T. infrastructure solution known as a Performance Optimized Data Center (POD). Using OSIsoft's PI System, HP was able to unify infrastructure data across both the POD Environmental Control System as well as the Brick-and-Mortar Building Automation System. HP's PI System provided substantial value by creating a stable, scalable and reliable solution that allowed the Automation Team to go beyond the simple action of monitoring.
With custom calculations and notifications, HP's data center operators were equipped with key elements needed to receive alerts on critical components as well as report and query the status of those pieces of equipment. HP's Automation Team is in the process of taking the OSIsoft PI System to the next level with a custom mobile platform known as Mobile PI. This solution will aim at increasing technician productivity in the field as well as provide a more friendly user interface for a mobile workforce.
