Insight Foundation Software

Do you need help increasing your system uptime and health? One of the easiest, simplest, least expensive solutions is HPE Systems Insight Manager (HPE SIM). It allows you to manage your hardware across a wide variety of HPE servers, including the latest HPE ProLiant Gen9 Servers, as well as storage and networking products. With HPE SIM you can manage your contracts and warranties and automate remote support via HPE Insight Remote Support. HPE SIM allows you to monitor the health of your HPE ProLiant Servers and HPE Integrity Servers, and also provides you with basic support for non-HPE servers. When you integrate HPE SIM with HPE Insight Control and HPE Matrix Operating Environment, you can proactively manage your physical and virtual server health, deploy servers quickly, decrease power consumption, and improve your infrastructure with capacity planning.
