HP Insight Control Storage Module for VMware vCenter is a plug-in for VMware's vCenter management console which enables the vSphere administrator to quickly obtain context-aware information about the HP storage in their VMware vSphere environment directly from within vCenter.

This enables the vSphere administrator to easily see how virtual machines are mapped to datastores and individual disk volumes, as well as create and manage both datastores and virtual machines. By providing the ability to clearly view and directly manage these relationships between virtual machines, datastores and the HP arrays, the VMware administrator's productivity increases, as does the ability to ensure quality of service.


The Storage module of HP Insight Control for VMware vCenter can be installed and used at no charge. Licensing is enabled as part of the download and installation sequence.
The Server module of HP Insight Control for VMware vCenter is licensed with HP Insight Control or HP OneView. At any given time, only one of the two licences is required for a managed host. New advance provisioning capabilities are available for HP OneView licensed host only.
