The HP Insight Control software (previously RDP) is a server deployment solution that facilitates the installation, configuration, and deployment of high-volumes of servers through either a GUI-based or a web-based console, using either scripting or imaging technology. Server configuration time is reduced, making it possible to scale server deployments to high volumes in rapid fashion. This course covers HP Insight Control software 6.x. You will learn how to successfully deploy and maintain HP ProLiant servers using this software product. Insight Control uses a central management console, HP Systems Insight Manager (HP SIM), to provide a comprehensive and intuitive interface for running an entire set of server management tasks. HP SIM alone is an effective unified infrastructure management tool. When used in conjunction with plug-ins, HP SIM becomes a comprehensive, easy-to-use platform that enables organizations to holistically control their Windows, HP-UX, and Linux environments
