SEATTLE, November 14, 2011– HP today introduced new HP ProLiant G7 servers featuring AMD Opteron 6200 series processors which can improve data center efficiency, scalability and performance up to 30 percent to support large-scale, virtualized and database workloads. (1)
The server industry leader for the past 61 quarters,(2)HP has launchedfive new industry-standard servers in its ProLiant x86 lineup: HP ProLiant BL465c G7, ProLiant BL685c G7, ProLiant DL385 G7, ProLiant DL585 G7 and the ProLiant DL165 G7.
With the world’s highest core density, HP ProLiant G7 servers with AMD Opteron 6200 series processors use 2,048 cores per rack and 33 percent more cores for highly concurrent HPC workloads, to deliver 35 percent greater performance over legacy offerings. (3) (4)The new servers also can deliverthe world’s fastest dual socket database engine with a nearly 40 percent improvement in throughput over the previous generation of HP ProLiant servers. (5)
To help organizations achieve the advantages of virtualization, HP ProLiant G7 servers with AMD Opteron offer the lowest cost per virtual machine.(6) The new servers deliver return on investment in as little as 30 days by consolidating physical dual socket servers at a ratio of 23-to-1, significantly increasing the number of virtual machines supported on a single blade platform.(7)
"We are excited about the launch of the HP ProLiant DL385 G7 based on the AMD Opteron 6200 series, as it will allow us to increase the density of virtual machines for our customers, while being able to dedicate processor cores for real-time applications like Microsoft Lync," said Robert Adie, director, Digital IP, an HP customer. "Leveraging HP and AMD together allows us to meet our customer requirements by minimizing the physical footprint and power requirement while hitting an aggressive price point. "
The new HP ProLiant G7 servers also include HPIntegrated Lights-Out (iLO 3),a server management tool enabling remote monitoring for reduced maintenance costs. Additionally, the new servers offer HP Virtual Connect,enabling clients to easily connect servers and virtual machines to any network, reducing IT sprawl up to 95 percent. (8)
"Increasing performance and data efficiency while curtailing IT sprawl, complexity and costs in the data center continues to challenge most organizations," said McLeod Glass, director of Marketing, Industry Standard Servers and Software HP. "HP ProLiant G7 servers with AMD Opteron 6200 series processors deliver a new level of compute density to support the most complex HPC applications with fewer nodes and less power."
