[OO Support Tip] Definition of a Cloud Flex 10 O-Node


This Information is about the meaning of the Operations Orchestration (OO) “OO Cloud Flex 10 O-Node”.

In the bto_emea_price_guide PDF (page12), it explain that “A server configured for virtualization allowing it to flex between 1 and 10 Virtual Machine (VM) instances”.

The need is to understand, in a production vCenter environment, where the environment has 1 VM Cluster based on 3 ESX servers that can run 70 VM's, how many instances of “OO Cloud Flex 10-Node” are needed?

Does the “server” in the explanation mean the:

A. 1 vCenter environment

B. 1 vm cluster / dtatastore ….

C. Each of the ESX server

If the above answer is C, than what happens when using a Vmotion process?



In a cluster environment, it means the ESX server. Therefore three ESX servers which require three “OO Cloud Flex 10 O-node” licenses, which is entitled for up to 30 servers (10 VM's each at most).

For the remaining VM's, each VM requires one “HP OO Enterprise O-Node”.

When one VM is switching from ESX server A to another ESX server B, if B already has 10 VM running, then the switching VM takes another “HP OO Enterprise O-Node” license. Otherwise, there is no need for standalone “HP OO Enterprise O-Node” license during the Vmotion process.
