Based on the AMD Opetron 6100 Series, the new ProLiant G7 servers will offer better power savings and increased performance.
HP today introduced three HP ProLiant G7 server platforms that offer a significant performance boost and enhanced power savings over previous generations.
Delivering a 23:1 consolidation ratio, HP ProLiant G7 servers with AMD Opteron™ 6100 Series processors increase operational efficiencies, paying for themselves in as little as two months.(1) The line includes the HP ProLiant DL165 G7 and HP ProLiant DL385 G7 rack-optimized servers, as well as the HP ProLiant SL165z G7 scale-out “skinless” server.
HP ProLiant servers are part of the HP Converged Infrastructure portfolio, which integrates servers, storage, network devices and facility resources into a common environment, allowing IT to rapidly respond to business demands. HP ProLiant servers provide modular, standards-based building blocks that advance clients toward a converged infrastructure.
“HP has a complete Converged Infrastructure portfolio that integrates the customer’s existing silos of servers, storage, network, management and facility resources into a common converged environment. As the leader of the x86 market for 54 consecutive quarters as per IDC’s WorldWide Q409 Quarterly Server Tracker, HP continues to innovate and deliver radical performance improvement and Return on Investment for customers,” said Ahmed Rashad, ISS business unit and sales manager, HP Middle East.
“HP has set the trend for today’s server portfolio and we continue the path of innovation beyond industry standards with our next generation servers.”
HP ProLiant servers include HP Thermal Logic technologies to reduce power consumption by as much as 96 percent.(2) Power savings are achieved through the combination of the following energy-saving features such as 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. The sensors automatically adjust system components such as fans, memory and input/output processing to reduce energy usage. The HP Power Advisor enables clients to improve energy efficiency by more accurately configuring systems based on real-time power guidance for their specific workloads.
In addition, energy-efficiency innovations in the HP ProLiant platforms, combined with the new AMD Opteron 6100 Series processors, deliver a 27 times performance-per-watt increase.
The HP ProLiant platform offers a comprehensive set of embedded technologies and flexible tools to maximize the productivity of an IT infrastructure, including HP Insight Control software that improves management productivity while reducing operational expenses up to $48,000 for every 100 users by allowing clients to control the management and monitoring of the server infrastructure onsite or remotely. HP Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) Advanced – enables clients to simplify server management and troubleshoot problems from any location, regardless of the server’s operating state while the HP Insight Remote Support software reduces issue resolution time by 20 percent with secure remote support for HP servers and storage, including monitoring for hardware failure to avoid problems before they occur.
Pricing and availability
The new HP ProLiant DL165, DL385 and SL165z G7 platforms are expected to be available next month worldwide. Prices for HP ProLiant G7 servers start at €965 and vary based on specific configurations.
