HP sänker företagens verksamhetskostnader genom att förenkla och automatisera IT

HP Converged Infrastructure provides a blueprintfor clients that want to eliminate sprawl, complexity and excessmaintenance costs.

The introductions at HP Tech Forum include themost significantHPBladeSystemadvancements in four years, including several newservers as well as innovations in HP Virtual Connect and HP BladeSystem Matrix. Also announced are unique powermanagement technologies that automate energy awareness and controlof IT systems across the data center, as well as storage softwarethat provides new levels of simplicity and automation through asingle, unified architecture for data deduplication.

“Customers are asking for solutions that removethe layers of complexity and excess equipment that have sprawledacross their environments so that IT can focus on innovation ratherthan operations” saidDaveDonatelli, executive vice president and general manager,Enterprise Servers, Storage and Networking, HP. “Today andthroughout the year, HP is bolstering its Converged Infrastructurestrategy with groundbreaking enterprisesolutions across every area of the data center, resulting ingreater levels of simplification, performance and savings for ourclients.”

HP ProLiant G7 bladesand servers: Deliver cost savings in as little as 30days(1

HP’s ability todeliver these and other innovations on top of industry standardshas driven customer confidence in HP ProLiant, as demonstrated inthe company’s market share leadership – a 56.1 percent market sharein blade servers and 39.2 percent share in x86 servers, accordingto IDC’s Worldwide Quarterly Server Tracker.(2)

Data-intensiveenterprise workloads are driving a massive increase in scalability,reliability and performance requirements. To perform optimally,servers must have a balanced architecture across CPU, input/output(I/O) and memory.

Three newHPProLiantscale-up servers deliver a number of innovations inautomation that allow clients to speed application delivery, moreeffectively utilize IT resources and achieve improved return oninvestment. The rack-mount servers offer several industry firstswith memory footprints of up to 2 terabytes (TB) and “self-healing”capabilities that maximize application uptime witha200 percentboost in availability.(3) Optimized forthe most data-intensive workloads, the servers reduce data centerfootprint, complexity and costs with a consolidation ratio up to91-to-1. 

Seven new HP ProLiant G7 server blades address themost demanding virtualization environments by offering theindustry’s first blade with 1 TB of memory and integrated 10GbVirtual Connect FlexFabric technology for I/O scalability. With anarchitecture that balances processor performance, expanded memoryand I/O capacity, these systems can support up to four times morevirtual machines than competitive blades, while requiring 66percent lesshardware.(4)

HP Virtual Connect:Converges data and storage networks to eliminate sprawl

The explosive growthof virtual machines has increased the complexity and cost ofconnecting servers to networks and storage. The expandedHPVirtualConnectportfolio delivers automated, wire-onceconnectivity to any network, eliminating up to 95 percent of sprawlat the network edge.

The new HP VirtualConnect FlexFabric module is a single device that connects serversto any Fibre Channel, Ethernet and iSCSI network. This eliminatesthe need for multiple interconnects. With HP Virtual ConnectFlexFabric technology, now built into HP ProLiant G7 server blades,clients can eliminate up to $185,000 in network equipment costs perrack.(5)

With more than 3 million ports delivered, HP Virtual Connect sales in the first half of HP’sfiscal 2010 have doubled over the same period last year. HP VirtualConnect lets clientsrapidly reconfigure connections to LANs and SANstransparently by movingworkloads or adding and replacing servers on thefly.

HP BladeSystemMatrix: Automates private cloud deployment

With manualdeployment of applications and infrastructure, it takes weeks oreven months to deliver new services to the business. Clients needan automated IT environment to rapidly respond to businesschange.

HP BladeSystem Matrixsoftware, through new integration with HP Server Automation, simplifies IT environments withone-touch, self-service provisioning of applications. Theindustry’s first “all inclusive” converged infrastructure offering,HP BladeSystem Matrix enables private clouds by allowing clients todeploy complex IT environments in minutes.(6) As aresult, clients can reduce their total cost of ownership up to 56percent compared to traditional ITinfrastructures.(6) 

“Our success dependson our ability to deliver reliable, high-quality IT services, sothat we can respond to fluctuations in demand without disruptingoperations and bolster business growth,” Merritte Stidston,director, Development Center Strategy & Operations, McKesson –Office of the Chief Technology Officer. “HP BladeSystem Matrixprovides a self-service, template-based portal using McKesson andHP system best practices, that allows us to quickly provisionblades – 90 this year – within a minute each. This ability gives usconsistent and repeatable results, which saves my team precioustime to accomplish other tasks while reducing builderrors.”

HP Intelligent PowerDiscovery: Eliminates overprovisioning in the datacenter

Accurate and timelypower usage data and control can save companies millions of dollarsin data center energy costs.

HPIntelligent Power Discoveryis an industry-first advancement forgreen data centers that creates an automated, energy-aware networkbetweenHP ProLiantservers,(7)third-party facility management tools and datacenter power grids. Expanding on HP’s Data Center Smart Gridsolutions, the software provides greatertransparency and insight into power usage by creating a real-time,graphical map of energy usage across servers and facilities. Byaccurately provisioning energy, clients can extend the lives oftheir data centers and save up to $5 million per every 1,000servers in one year.(8)

HP StoreOnce:Reinvents data deduplication for the ConvergedInfrastructure

Deduplication reducescosts by eliminating multiple stored versions of the same data. Theindustry’s first-generation offerings required clients to utilizemultiple processes and multiple products to supportdifferentapplicationsand platforms.

HP StoreOnce is the industry’s first solution toautomate data deduplication across the enterprise with a singleunified architecture. By eliminating the complexity of multiplededuplication processes and products, HP StoreOnce improvesproductivity and data management efficiency. Built on patentedinnovation designed byHP Labs, thecompany’s research arm, this new class of deduplication softwaredelivers up to 20 percent improvement in performance(9)and more than twice the price/performance ratio of a leadingcompetitive offering.(10)

Now available with HP’s line of D2D backupsystems, including the new HP D2D4312, HP StoreOnce enables clientsto spend up to 95 percent less on storagecapacity.(9) Available within virtual appliances, backupclients and scale-out storage systems, HP StoreOnce providesclients a single solution for all their deduplicationneeds.
