New Release: The Gorilla Guide To…® The Predictive and Proactive Approach to IT Infrastructure Health and Wellness, Express Edition!

In The Gorilla Guide To…® The Predictive and Proactive Approach to IT Infrastructure Health and Wellness, Express Edition, author Becky Elliott uses health as a metaphor for a computing and network infrastructure that serves an organization’s needs. Health and wellness, for a computer platform, means recording what good baseline behavior looks like and noting deviations, just as your doctor warns you that your blood sugar is on the rise before you actually develop diabetes.

Health monitoring for computers nowadays requires automation. Just as the size of modern environments force large companies to automate basic operations such as configuration and scaling, the demands of troubleshooting and capacity planning require automation. An operator looking through log files and calculating on the back of an envelope (or even using fancy computing tools to do these calculations) just can’t keep up with the complexity of traffic on virtual systems that come and go and interact heavily.

HPE InfoSight is much more than a monitoring and alerting system (see Figure 1). It guards your infrastructure like a super-analyst, drawing instant insights from observations across all your systems, routers, and applications. Like a human expert, it draws on previous experience—but HPE’s wide reach takes this expertise into a new dimension, combining enormous amounts of information from thousands of customers along with the insights derived from all those diverse environments.


Because of InfoSight’s vast knowledge base and AI capabilities, it can warn you when a software or firmware upgrade might break something. It checks for security risks. And it is intimately familiar with a wide range of software and hardware, including HPE’s storage appliances. Thus, it’s a comprehensive, one-stop tool for installing wellness in your infrastructure.
