Full-sized power. Less power draw.

Throughout Shorty's design process, we put some alternative thinking into the unique power and cooling needs of small IT sites. The result: A system that gives your business more flexibility without a bigger electric bill. In fact, HP blade servers use up to 30% less power.*

HP Thermal Logic Technology is what makes this possible. A dashboard accurately monitors and controls cooling and power use to match it to each server’s demands. Alternative thinking technologies like HP Dynamic Power Saver and HP Power Regulator enable Shorty to pool, share and allocate the right amount of power right down to the processor level. And bringing down power costs is a better outcome for any business.

Of course, you don’t want to sacrifice computing performance — and you won’t have to. The blades in Shorty are the same powerful components found in a full-sized HP BladeSystem c7000, with all the flexibility and performance that the biggest companies take advantage of. Just in a more manageable size.

Think that’s hot? Actually it’s cool…

*Based on August 6, 2007 power tests performed by HP labs on similarly configured ProLiant BL460c and Dell PowerEdge 1950 servers.
