It enables the user to quickly compare different solution configurations and produces a customizable server and storage solution complete with a detail Bill of Materials (BOM) that includes part numbers and prices.
The HP Sizer for Server Virtualization allows users to create new solutions, open existing solutions, or use other types of performance data collecting tools, such as the Microsoft Assessment and Planning tool (MAP), to build rich virtualized configurations based on HP server and storage technologies. The tool allows rapid comparison of virtualized solutions using various HP server and storage choices and offers a choice of VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization technologies in a common tool.
