Hewlett-Packard this week launched a series of new Generation 8 (Gen8, G8) servers that have a suite of innovative features, including HP Proactive Insight technology, which continually monitors more than a thousand system parameters without hindering application performance. HP boasts its Gen8 portfolio for delivering 3x the administrator productivity, 6x performance for demanding workloads and 66% faster problem resolution over previous systems.
HP ProLiant Gen8 that have been announced so far include:
HP ProLiant BL460c Gen8: HP touts the BL460c Gen8 as having “the ideal balance of performance, scalability, and expandability,” which makes it “the blade standard” for a variety of small, medium-sized and enterprise-class business applications. Equipped with one Intel Xeon processor, the ProLiant BL460c G8 scales to 512 GB of memory with 16 DIMMs.
HP ProLiant DL360p Gen8: The enterprise-class ProLiant DL360p Gen8 is a space-saving system that's powered by one or two Intel Xeon E5-2600 Series processors. The DL360p G8 supports up to 768 GB of memory via a dozen DIMMs and 12 TB of internal disk storage.
HP ProLiant DL380p Gen8: HP calls this two-socket system “the perfect solution for the dynamic compute requirements of today's demanding data centers.” Equipped with one or two Intel Xeons, the ProLiant DL380p doubles the memory of the previous generation and delivers significantly faster memory speeds at 1600MHz.
HP ProLiant ML350p Gen8: Available in 5U rack and tower models, the ProLiant ML350p Gen8 features innovations in “memory, server management, firmware management and server storage,” according to HP. With two dozen DIMMs, the HP ProLiant ML350p G8 supports 384 GB of memory; it stores up to 54 TB.
HP ProLiant SL230s Gen8: This multi-mode system is built for high-performance and scale-out environments. The ProLiant SL230s Gen8 scales to 512 GB of memory and 4 TB of internal disk storage. hp-proliant-servers/hp-proliant-sl230s-gen8-server.asp HP ProLiant SL250s Gen8: As many as four 4U ProLiant SL250s Gen8 nodes fit into the HP s6500 scalable system. With one or two Intel Xeon processors, the ProLiant SL250s G8 supports 512 GB of memory and 4 TB of internal disk storage.
HP ProLiant SL250s Gen8: According to HP, this system delivers 25% better memory bandwidth than previous solutions. Up to four HP ProLiant Gen8 nodes fit into an HP s6500 scalable system.
