Standard Features
HP Matrix OE for HP
Integrity servers
HP Matrix OE is advanced lifecycle management software for HP Integrity
servers which enables you to instantly adjust to dynamic business demands with the new addition of infrastructure orchestration, not only can you easily
plan, configure, and automate your physical and virtual resources in the same
way, but now you can also provision and modify a complex infrastructure in
minutes.
HP-UX Software Assistant HP-UX Software Assistant (SWA) is a command-line based tool that
(SWA)
consolidates and simplifies patch management and security bulletin
management on HP-UX systems. The SWA tool is new for HP-UX releases as
of January 2007, includes Security Patch Check (SPC), and is the HPrecommended utility to use to maintain currency with HP-published security
bulletins for HP-UX software.
HP-UX Workload Manager HP-UX Workload Manager (HP-UX WLM) is a resource management tool that
provides automatic processor resource allocation and application
performance management based on your service-level objectives (SLOs) and
business priorities. WLM is most effective managing applications that are
processor-bound. It automatically adapts system or partition CPU resources
(cores) to the demands, SLOs, and priorities of the running applications. (A
core is the actual data processing engine within a processor, where a single
processor can have multiple cores, and a core can support multiple execution
threads through Hyper-Threading, introduced with HP-UX 11i v3, as discussed
below.) It adjusts the CPU allocation of a group of processes known as a
workload, basing adjustment on the current needs and performance of the
applications in that workload.
HP Global Workload
The workload management capability for HP Integrity servers is provided by
Manager
the HP Global Workload Manager component of HP Insight Dynamics - VSE. HP
Global Workload Manager (gWLM) is an intelligent policy engine that
automatically allocates resources among multiple workloads to increase
server utilization while meeting service levels for high-priority applications.
Designed to work across multiple HP-UX 11i, OpenVMS and Linux
environments, the workload management features are ideal for large,
centralized IT environments that host applications for many departments.
HP Matrix OE
HP Matrix OE capabilities let you provision infrastructure in minutes to
automatically activate physical and virtual servers, storage, and networking
from pools of shared resources. Whether you need a single virtual machine or
infrastructure for a complex three-tier application, Matrix OE finds available
resources, streamlines the approval process, and automatically provisions
and configures what's needed across infrastructure silos. Delivering
infrastructure to the business becomes faster, more efficient, and more
reliable.
Performance Manager and HP Performance Manager, Agents, and Monitor combine to provide a powerful
Agent
and flexible distributed management solution. This solution is a single
interface for centrally monitoring, analyzing, and forecasting resource
utilization for distributed multi-vendor environments, enabling you to offer
the best possible level of service in a cost-effective manner.
Process Resource Manager HP Process Resource Manager (HP PRM) is a resource management tool used
to control the amount of resources that processes use during peak system
load. HP PRM can manage allocation of the following resources:
CPU: Ensures a minimum allocation of CPU; can also simultaneously cap

Management
CPU resource usage for each group in the configuration. (Starting with
HP-UX 11i v3, per-group capping is available.)
Memory: Ensures a minimum allocation of private real memory; can
also cap private memory usage. Allows you to allocate an exact amount
of shared memory.
Disk bandwidth: Ensures a minimum allocation of disk bandwidth
One method that Matrix OE uses to improve server resource utilization is to
consolidate multiple applications within a single operating system image. HPUX Containers combine kernel level security and prove resource management
to stack multiple applications within the same operating system. HP-UX
Containers and HP-UX Workload Manager can dedicate specific resources to
specific applications within an operating system image, avoiding resource
contention issues. Using HP-UX Containers11i v3 Security Containment,
organizations can ensure that application instances cannot access processes
or file from other applications or the system. This ensures that multiple
application instances run securely in a consolidated environment, providing
the benefits of consolidation while preserving the security of a scale out
environment. For software licensing purposes, the maximum number of CPUs

Standard Features
Protecting systems:
One critical factor in enterprise security is system minimization and hardening. HP-UX 11i offers a set of
security features designed to address known and unknown vulnerabilities by running only the services
that are needed, thus minimizing a potential point of attack. The following security features have built-in
mechanisms not only to minimize and harden the system, but also to detect and react to attack in real
time:
Bastille system hardening
Host Intrusion Detection System
Secure Resource Partitions
IPFilter - firewall technology
Software Assistant (security bulletin currency)
Install-time Security
Boot Authentication
Standard Mode Security Extensions
Shadow Passwords
Strong Random Number Generator
Protecting data:
HP-UX 11i offers data protection in many forms: protecting data in transit, in use and at rest. By using
security features designed to protect data in its three forms, HP-UX 11i customers can minimize possible
breaches not only in terms of data loss, but in customer trust as well. Several security features offer data
protection capabilities to HP-UX customers:
Encrypted volume and file system
Trusted Computing Services
Security containment
OpenSSL
IPSec
Secure Shell
MD5sum
Protecting Identity:
In modern day global enterprise companies, managing identity is not an easy task , especially as identity
management requirements grow to include employees, contractors, partners and suppliers across many
countries with various privacy protection laws and regulation. HP-UX 11i dramatically simplifies this
critical task by integrating various identity management technologies which offer ease of use and
adherence to compliance regulation:
Identity Management Integration
Select Access for IdMI
Role-based Access Control
AAA Server
HP Directory Server for HP-UX
LDAP-UX Client
Kerberos Server
Kerberos Client Services
PAM Kerberos
NOTE: HP also offers many additional security features available through open source software for HPUX.
