Value Pack Description

Accelerated iSCSI pack The Accelerated iSCSI Pack enables the embedded multifunction network controller to serve as both a NIC and an iSCSI host bus adapter (HBA), providing access to SAN storage over the same connection used for networking. Processing of the protocol stack is offloaded to the NIC, reducing CPU utilization and greatly improving the speed with which the requests are processed and sent to the network.

Integrated Lights-Out select pack The Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) Select Pack upgrades the Integrated Lights-Out processor with scripted and command line virtual media, Power Regulator reporting, and enterprise security.

Intelligent networking pack The Intelligent Networking Pack detects and analyzes network bottlenecks, or broken network linkages, and steers traffic to the optimum route based on network conditions. This pack provides an extra layer of protection. The virus throttle feature of the solution slows the propagation of fast spreading viruses.

Remote Directory Memory Access (RDMA) Pack for Embedded Multifunction Gigabit Server Adapters The RDMA pack for Embedded Multifunction Gigabit Server Adapters provides direct (and faster) communication between application buffers in separate servers for tasks that involve moving large amounts of data, such as network backups, database read/write, and high performance computing.

Server migration pack The Server Migration Pack (P2P Edition) helps you effortlessly transition to new servers with automated, accurate, and affordable migration of operating system, application, and data.

Virtualization management software The Virtualization Management Software helps you get the most out of server virtualization by unifying the management of physical and virtual servers in HPE Systems Insight Manager. The Virtual Machine Management Pack plug-in provides central management and control of VMware and Microsoft virtual machines, and provides physical host to virtual machine association. The Server Migration Pack plug-in automates the manual task of migrating servers between physical or virtual platforms.

Workload management pack The Workload Management Pack provides easier management of complex environments, improving overall server utilization and enabling Microsoft Windows 2000 customers (for the first time) to confidently deploy multiple applications on a single multiprocessor HPE ProLiant Server.
