Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced the availability of HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 server powered by AMD.
HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 server powered by AMD, which will be available from December, will be offering up to 50 percent lower cost per virtual machine (VM) than traditional server solutions.
IDC says 41 percent of new server shipments will be virtualized in 2020 up from 33 percent in 2015.
Enterprises report almost 20 percent savings from virtualizing their servers.
The new HPE ProLiant DL385 server leverages the AMD EPYC chip to enable customers to achieve better utilization and ROI while delivering better security for virtualized workloads.
“With the HPE ProLiant DL385, we are extending the world’s most secure industry standard server portfolio with the AMD EPYC SoC to optimize performance and security,” said Vikram K, senior director, Data Center and Hybrid Cloud, HPE India Enterprise.
The HPE ProLiant DL385 delivers better security via the HPE Silicon Root of Trust, a link between the HPE Integrated Light Out (iLO) silicon and the iLO firmware to ensure servers do not execute compromised firmware code.
AMD Secure Processor can validate the HPE firmware before the server is allowed to boot because the HPE Silicon Root of Trust is connected to the AMD Secure Processor in the AMD EPYC.
“EPYC allows the HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 to support more virtual machines per server, process more data in parallel, access more local storage, while providing unprecedented security,” said Scott Aylor, corporate VP and GM Enterprise Business Unit at Advanced Micro Devices.
HPE ProLiant DL385 comes with flexible IT consumption models and special financial programs. HPE Flexible Capacity enables customers to pay for IT as it is consumed, managing unpredictable demands and raising utilization levels.
HPE is offering 90-day deferred payments, 0 percent financing and trade-in programs for purchasing the HPE ProLiant DL385 server.
