HP has launched a new portfolio of HP ProLiant Generation 9 (Gen9) Servers to help customers reduce cost and complexity, accelerate IT service delivery and enable business growth, the software company announced last Wednesday (September 17, 2014).
IT organisations - under increasing pressure to quickly and efficiently deliver more applications and services, as well as store and deliver exponentially increasing amounts of data while reducing costs - are constrained by traditional data centre and server architectures. The new HP ProLiant Gen9 Servers are designed to address these challenges, delivering flexible, scalable computing resources that are aligned to companies' business goals, said HP in its media statement.
With the HP ProLiant Gen9 portfolio, which is designed to run modern workloads, enterprises will be able to support key business goals, such as delivering new mobile services to employees or customers in minutes, turning unique customer behavior data into actionable insight in seconds, and capitalising on business opportunities in real time.
According to HP, the new servers span four architectures - blade, rack, tower and scale-out - to give organisations the ability to triple compute capacity and increase efficiency across multiple workloads at a lower total cost of ownership, accelerate IT service delivery and increase infrastructure provisioning up to 66 times faster, and improve workload performance of business-critical applications up to four times to drive business growth.
"The rise of mobile, cloud, social and big data is driving the need for a new approach to the data centre and its processing engine - the server - to enable successful business outcomes," said Stephen Bovis, vice president and general manager, HP Servers, Asia Pacific and Japan.
"HP created the x86 server market 25 years ago, and we have led this market ever since with innovations that have dramatically transformed the data center, such as HP Moonshot and HP Apollo. Today, we're setting the stage for the next quarter century with HP ProLiant Gen9 Servers and compute, which combines the best of traditional IT and cloud environments to enable a truly software-defined enterprise," he added.
