HP has launched two new ProLiant Generation 8 (Gen8) four-socket servers: ProLiant BL660c and DL560 Gen8, that the company said will enable customers to move to cloud easily and provide enhanced computing power at smaller footprint.
The new servers are designed to enhance performance for complex, virtualised environments to enable clients access their data fast, optimise their system to achieve higher-performing workloads and add more virtual machines (VMs) per server, the company added.
HP’s new servers are built upon the HP ProActive Insight Architecture to redefine expectations and economics in the data centre.
ProLiant BL660c and DL560 Gen8 servers reduce maintenance time through high levels of automation and continuous monitoring of system health, saving IT staff more than 30 days of administration time a year.
The HP ProLiant BL660c Gen8 server offers three-to-one server-consolidation rate, reduced server footprint in the data centre, four-socket density in half the size of the previous generation and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) by up to 30%.
ProLiant DL560 Gen8 server provides a space-minimising four-socket server in a 2U form factor without compromising performance, scalability or expansion requirements.
The new servers offer improved storage performance with the first integrated PCIe 3.0 storage technology, provide twice the input/output bandwidth and up to six times faster performance than previous generations.
They also provide enhanced VM support with a memory design that is five times denser than competitive applications, delivers lower latency than previous generations, offers up to 50% better memory performance than competitive applications and enables more consolidation of virtual applications on fewer servers.
