HPE SimpliVity 2600s call-home function is called "OmniWatch" and is fully integrated into the platform. Enabling the feature is simple and straightforward and requires very few clicks.
OmniWatch is a proactive and preventative service that continuously monitors and evaluates the health of a customer’s hyperconverged infrastructure. OmniWatch is able to identify problems before they impact the business by filing a support case and alerting a HPE SimpliVity 380 support expert of potential issues or risks.
OmniWatch is a basic support service and is included with every support plan.
