HPs nya ProLiant G7-servrar ger full ROI inom två månader

Stockholm 11 maj 2010 – HP today announced advancements to its server management software suite, significantly improving system operations and efficiency throughout the server life cycle and paying for itself in as little as two months.

HP also introduced two new HP ProLiant G7 server platforms that deliver a full return on investment (ROI) in two months.(1) The HP ProLiant DL360 G7 and HP ProLiant DL 380 G7 rack-optimized servers deliver up to a 20:1 consolidation ratio, reducing floor space and improving data center capacity.(1)  

These additions, as well as the HP ProLiant DL165 G7, DL385 G7 and SL165z G7  announced last month, enable clients to not only recoup their initial ROI, but continue to free up operational dollars that can then be reinvested in other IT innovation projects. 

Offered as an essential building block for a Converged Infrastructure, HP servers offer advanced management and energy efficiency, delivering up to 27 times performance per watt improvements.(1) With a Converged Infrastructure, customers can eliminate silos by integrating technology assets that deliver operational flexibility as business needs change.

Best-in-class management tools improve productivity
HP Insight Control software provides a single, integrated management solution for both physical and virtual servers and now includes the latest version of Integrated Lights-Out Advanced (iLO 3).

The iLO 3 remote console is eight times faster than the previous version, increasing administrator productivity and directly addressing one of the largest operational cost centers for most enterprises.(2) With simplified server setup, power and thermal optimization, as well as embedded system-health monitoring to lower administration costs, iLO 3 provides clients with the following time and cost-saving features:

—    Increased performance – real-time control via a simple, unified console that enables clients to perform remote server management tasks faster, at any time and from anywhere in the world. Virtual Folders and Virtual Media Servers speed software installation and remote access by hosting commonly used files and configurations locally.

—    Improved user experience and collaboration tools – simplified, intuitive management interface provides video recording and playback of issue discovery. iLO 3 also enables up to six users to collaborate remotely from anywhere in the world to trouble-shoot issues.

—    Enhanced security – protects business data through strong, hardware-backed encryption that does not compromise performance.

“We support businesses that run 24 by 7, so remote server management capabilities like those now available in HP Insight Control with iLO 3 enable HTS to be hands on when issues arise, regardless of where our engineering resources are,“ said Arlin Sorensen, chief executive officer of Heartland Technology Solutions, an HP partner. ”More efficient tools allow our team to reduce time and money spent on server administration and maintenance so our clients can invest those resources in new technologies that can help their businesses grow.”

Energy efficiency built into every server
HP ProLiant servers integrate HP Thermal Logic technologies to reduce power consumption by as much as 96 percent.(3) Industry-leading power savings are achieved through the combination of the following HP innovations and energy-saving features:

—    HP Sea of Sensors – optimizes system cooling and increases efficiency by automatically tracking thermal activity through a collection of up to 32 smart sensors placed strategically throughout the server. 

—    HP Dynamic Power Capping technology in HP Insight Control – improves data center utilization, reclaims over-provisioned energy and triples data center capacity by enabling IT managers to accurately monitor and control the power used by each server.(4) 

—    HP Power Advisor – enables clients to improve energy efficiency by more accurately configuring systems based on real-time power guidance for their specific workloads and thus not overprovisioning servers or data centers.

These energy-efficiency innovations in the two new HP ProLiant DL 360 and DL 380 G7 platforms, combined with the new Intel® Xeon® 5600 Series processors, deliver a 27 times performance-per-watt increase.(1)

Better performance and lower costs via a balanced architecture 

HP ProLiant G7 server innovations combined with HP Thermal Logic technologies can help clients reduce the number of physical servers and software licenses by up to 95 percent, reducing data center costs and reversing server sprawl.(1) Savings can then be used to fund new IT projects.

HP ProLiant servers are architected to deliver the right balance of I/O (input/output) for the compute and memory capacity of the server. The HP ProLiant DL360 G7 server delivers double the networking bandwidth compared to the G6 version, providing better economics for clients needing additional I/O capabilities without an additional option card. Both the HP ProLiant DL360 G7 and DL380 G7 servers offer up to 192 GB max DDR3 memory, contain 18 DIMM sockets, provide four network ports and support memory speeds up to 1,333 MHz. This balanced systems architecture enables clients to maximize server performance for virtualization, business intelligence and database workloads.

HP ProLiant DL380 is the biggest selling server in the world”, says Christian Keller, Vice President of Industry Standard Servers, HP EMEA. “In 4Q09 in EMEA, HP ISS holds a 47% market share and 54% on blades, according to IDC.(5) HP industry standard servers deliver dynamic, service-oriented and highly-virtualized environments and are the ideal building blocks for a converged infrastructure.”

HP ProLiant G7 DL 300 series servers are pre-enabled with iLO 3 Standard edition. Clients can purchase iLO 3 Advanced starting at €340 or with HP Insight Control starting at €440 (or €340 when bundled with the Server) for the complete set of server life cycle management capabilities.
