Infotech Lead India: HP has unveiled two new HP ProLiant Generation 8 four-socket servers targeting enterprises in India.
HP claims that the new servers enable customers’ move to cloud while delivering increased compute power in less space and a return on investment within three months.
The HP ProLiant DL560 Gen8 and HP ProLiant BL660c Gen8 are available worldwide for starting prices of $5,912 and $7,970, respectively.
The HP ProLiant BL660c and DL560 Gen8 servers significantly reduce the time spent on maintenance tasks through high levels of automation and continuous monitoring of system health, saving IT staff more than 30 days of administration time a year.
These multiprocessor servers satisfy the need for high-end compute power that enables clients to extend end-to-end virtualization and provide a foundation for creating private and hybrid clouds.
With a three-to-one server-consolidation rate and reduced server footprint in the data center, the HP ProLiant BL660c Gen8 server offers four-socket density in half the size of the previous generation, and reduces total cost of ownership by up to 30 percent.
Moreover, the HP ProLiant DL560 Gen8 server provides a space-minimizing four-socket server in a 2U form factor without compromising performance, scalability or expansion requirements.
HP ProLiant BL660c and HP ProLiant DL560 Gen8 servers are designed to drive better performance for complex and virtualized environments.
ZTE Corporation utilized these servers for optimizing application performance to help speed innovation and business growth.
“We needed to modernize our data centers in order to keep up with rapid growth and to ensure continued service to our customers across 140 countries. We chose the HP ProLiant DL 560 Gen8 server over the competition because it offered increased virtual machine densities to reduce space and cost, while improving performance, which enabled us to develop a platform to build private clouds,” said Yu Yuan, product manager, ZTE Corporation.
