HP ProLiant servers double performance, slash energy costs up to 50%
HP has announced the addition of several new servers to its HP ProLiant server portfolio that provide advances in energy efficiency, performance and manageability, delivering increased value for every IT dollar.

Seven of the new HP ProLiant server platforms are built on the Six-Core AMD Opteron processors, delivering a high price to performance ratio.

HP also introduced an entirely new HP ProLiant platform that offers double the density of traditional rack servers, resulting in more compute power with reduced energy use. In addition, a new modular, scalable tower server design enables customers to buy capacity as needed and defer capital expenditures by extending processing power and memory capacity in the server as the business grows.

“Customers want to cut costs from every corner of their data centres to help drive new business growth,” said Andrew Cameron, Enterprise Server Product Manager, HP South Pacific. “By simply replacing servers purchased prior to 2006 with new HP ProLiant G6 servers, customers can slash their energy bills in half.”

The new HP ProLiant G6 on AMD processors offer expanded availability of many energy-saving and performance features including Thermal Logic technologies that allow G6 servers to use half the power of previous generations, including HP Dynamic Power Capping, which limits the power drawn by the server. Additionally, the Sea of Sensors uses up to 32 smart sensors in each server to automatically monitor the heat created by a server and adjusts fans accordingly.

A Common Slot Power Supplies offer up to 92 percent efficiency on nearly all workloads by allowing customers to choose from four power supplies to match their specific application, minimising power waste.

The HP ProLiant G6 AMD portfolio, based on AMD Opteron 6-core processors, includes the HP ProLiant DL785, DL585, DL385 and DL165 rack-optimised servers and the HP ProLiant BL465, BL495c and BL685c server blades.

The new HP ProLiant DL1000 Multi-Node series delivers a 30 percent increase in energy efficiency compared to traditional rack servers. The DL1000 series is available in multiple compute and storage configurations providing customers with the flexibility to meet varying application requirements. The series includes the DL4x170h G6, offering four server nodes in a single two-unit chassis and the HP ProLiant DL2x170h G6, which provides two server nodes with expanded I/O capabilities.

Also announced was the HP ProLiant ML330 G6, the industry’s only modular tower server based on Intel Xeon 5500 processors and DDR3 memory. The ML330 offers a modular server architecture engineered to easily scale processing power and memory capacity in the server, as required. This enables customers to defer capital expenditures until additional performance or capacity is needed for business growth.

The new HP ProLiant G6 platforms on AMD processors will be available in New Zealand in July. Starting prices for the new HP ProLiant G6 servers range from NZ$3,180 for the entry level rack HP ProLiant DL165 G6 to NZ$62,350 for the HP ProLiant BL658c and vary based on specific configurations.

The HP ProLiant DL4x170h and the HP ProLiant DL2x170h G6 servers are available in August.

The HP ProLiant ML330 G6 server is available now with a starting price of NZ$2,835.
