HP launches new generation of ProLiant servers

PETALING JAYA: The Hewlett-Packard Co has introduced three HP ProLiant G7 server platforms that it says offer a significant performance boost and enhanced power savings over previous generations.

Delivering a 23:1 consolidation ratio, the servers with AMD Opteron 6100 Series processors increase operational efficiencies, paying for themselves in as little as two months, it announced.

The line includes the ProLiant DL165 G7 and ProLiant DL385 G7 rack-optimised servers, as well as the ProLiant SL165z G7 scale-out “skinless” server.

HP’s ProLiant servers are part of its converged infrastructure portfolio, which integrates servers, storage, network devices and facility resources into a common environment.

This allows information technology to rapidly respond to business demands, it said, adding that the ProLiant servers provide modular, standards-based building blocks which advance clients toward a converged infrastructure.

“Customers in Asia Pacific want the best possible return on their server investments, allowing them to channel valuable resources towards innovation,” said Stephen Bovis, vice-president and general manager of industry-standard servers for HP Asia Pacific and Japan.

“The ProLiant G7 boosts systems performance while utilising fewer servers than previously needed, allowing customers to reduce capital expenditures, energy costs and software licensing fees by 97%.”

Other savings

HP’s ProLiant servers have its Thermal Logic technologies to reduce power consumption by as much as 96%.

They also have a comprehensive set of embedded technologies and flexible tools to maximise the productivity of an IT infrastructure.

According to HP, the ProLiant DL165, DL385 and SL165z G7 platforms are expected to be available next month worldwide.

Prices for ProLiant G7 servers start at US$1,449 (about RM5,000) and vary based on specific configurations.
