HP Goes For The Next Generation
HP announced the industry’s most self-sufficient line of servers at the Intercontinental Hotel Manila last Thursday. Labeled as the HP ProLiant Generation 8 (Gen8), the servers are the product of a US$300 million, two-year program named Project Voyager. The project is part of the company’s initiative to redefine data center economics by automating every aspect of the server’s cycle. This has resulted in a new systems architecture called the HP ProActive Insight architecture, which will cover the whole HP Converged Infrastructure.
The goal of the HP ProLiant Gen8, with HP ProActive Insight architecture, is to address the top issues of enterprises by automating tasks with intelligent technologies and improving uptime. The ProActive Insight architecture is designed with powerful hardware and software that delivers optimal server life cycle automation. To keep you constantly updated, it also provides continuous intelligence on server health, power usage, and other vital diagnostics. With this, updates can be shown up to three times faster, and have as much as 93 percent less downtime. In summary, the main features are the following: Intergrated Lifecycle Automation, Dynamic Workload Acceleration, Automated Energy Optimization, and Proactive Service and Support.
HP ProLiant Gen8 servers are already available to those who want to adopt one today. Models include the HP ProLiant ML Tower for remote branch offices, HP ProLiant DL that delivers a balance of efficiency and performance, HP ProLiant BL for cloud-ready Converged Infrastructure, and HP ProLiant SL which is built for web, cloud, and massively scaled environments.
