Overview

HPE 3PAR StoreServ Management Console (SSMC) is the HPE 3PAR new management and reporting console that offers converged management of both File and Block on HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage systems.

HPE 3PAR StoreServ Management Console offers a new modern look and consistent feel and a common interface and language with HPE OneView. Designed to use the latest API (Application Program Interface) and UI (User Interface) technologies, HPE 3PAR SSMC centralizes all HPE 3PAR StoreServ management under a single pane of glass and offers converged management and reporting for both file and block. Accessible through web based UI, you can run your operations as HPE 3PAR SSMC tasks with an improved user experience and better responsiveness. All the information you need from HPE 3PAR StoreServ is available at a glance with customizable reporting capabilities, eliminating the need for add-on software tools or diagnostics and troubleshooting that require professional services. Assess what's happening across the entire data center in seconds via a simple dashboard and you are just one click away from collecting configuration and health information on any resource.

HPE 3PAR System Reporter is also fully integrated in SSMC and offers reporting templates, scheduled reports and threshold alerts.
