HP has introduced a high-availability, fault-tolerant blade server, with promises of delivering the lowest total cost of ownership of any server in its class.
The new HP Integrity NonStop NB50000c BladeSystem supports high transaction volumes and provides real-time response capabilities in a cost-effective design.
The company says that by combining the high-availability features of HP Integrity NonStop with the cost, change, time and energy efficiencies of HP BladeSystem, the Integrity NonStop BladeSystem is an ideal replacement platform for mainframe applications in industries such as finance, public sector and telecommunications.
Using the same amount of power as existing NonStop server offerings, the NB50000c delivers twice the performance and occupies half the data center space. Additionally, the NonStop BladeSystem offers 35 percent lower total cost of ownership than competing offerings and up to a 50 percent decrease in cost per transaction.
“The new Integrity NonStop BladeSystem provides 24/7 business availability and scalability to our customers through the economies of a bladed form factor,” said Ann Livermore, executive vice president, Technology Solutions Group, HP. “This is yet another example of how HP enables customers to manage and transform their technology for better business outcomes.”
The NonStop operating environment offered on a standards-based blade design ensures the highest levels of reliability. Its fault-containment design protects data while error-recovery features eliminate downtime.
HP is working hard to hit mainframe users where it matters - the cost. The company has announced a new “NonStop FREEdom” incentive program that provides an HP Integrity NonStop NB50000c BladeSystem at no charge and a full year of NonStop platform software to customers who choose to migrate from mainframe architectures.
The HP Integrity NonStop NB50000c BladeSystem is available now and prices are available on request.
