HP's software platform for managing its servers and storage can reduce datacentre operation costs by up to 34%, according to a study conducted by research firm IDC and sponsored by HP.

The study found that HP Systems Insight Manager (SIM) customers can achieve savings of US$35,000 per 100 users over a three-year period, which represents a cost reduction of more than one third and a 468% Return on Investment (RoI).

Additionally, HP SIM enables IT organisations to halve their server-to-administrator ratio and reduce unplanned downtime by as much as 77%, according to the study.

A key product in HP's Enterprise Storage and Server software portfolio, HP SIM unifies infrastructure management for HP ProLiant, BladeSystem and Integrity servers along with HP StorageWorks platforms.

HP has added power capping and remote management capabilities to HP Insight Control, the unified infrastructure management portfolio for HP ProLiant and BladeSystem servers. The new capabilities can combat rising energy costs.
