HP Serviceguard Manager is also integrated with HP System Insight Manager (HP SIM) to enable management of multiple clusters running on Linux or HP-UX from a single browser.
|Full solution support
||As solid as the cluster itself, HP is solely accountable to you for all aspects of the solution, eliminating wasted time determining accountability among suppliers.
|Commitment to offering choice
||Rather than developing proprietary solutions which limit customer choice, HP Serviceguard for Linux leverages and supports emerging open-source standards to ensure interoperability of cluster components.
