  • Virtualization technology allows you to do more business and get more performance out of IT than ever before.  HP can help you deliver better business performance to your bottom line and offers solutions that allow your users to be more productive when you deploy virtual desktop infrastructure with Citrix XenDesktop.

Desktop


  • HP provides integrated end-to-end virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions and serves as a “one-stop shop” for the customer. The solution is based on the best-in-class virtualization-ready ProLiant and BladeSystem server platforms, StorageWorks storage and HP thin client solutions accompanied with management software for physical and virtual infrastructure.
  • HP offers the first server blade built for virtualization. The more VMs you can deploy on one platform, the easier it can be to manage your data center performance and help reduce fixed and variable costs to your business.

Server Blade


  • The ProLiant BL495c G5 Server Blade, the ideal choice for virtualization, offers more memory and greater network throughput than any other half-height server blade, maximizing a customer’s virtual machine (VM) capacity.
  • Now available is the BL680 G5 featuring the new six-core processor x86 --- the Intel® Xeon® 7400 Series.  Ideal for hosting larger databases, applications and delivering greater capabilities to deploy many virtual machines, the HP ProLiant BL680c G5 delivers performance and expansion in a compact 4P server blade form-factor.

Rack-mount Servers


  • For data centers that rely on rack-mount server technology, HP introduces the ProLiant DL580 G5 featuring the new Intel® Xeon® 7300 and 7400 processors. This high-performance server is able to handle more complex transaction demands and support multiple virtual machines as business requirements shift and evolve.
  • The HP ProLiant DL580 G5 is the best-in-class platform for virtualization, combining Intel’s newest Xeon® processor technology, maximum scalability and high availability features.  This 4-socket server offers unsurpassed flexibility and serviceability in a versatile, 4U rack-optimized form factor. Based on the latest industry standard technologies, the DL580 G5 provides the highest levels of performance demanded by today’s compute-intensive applications.

Rethinking Your Datacenter Infrastructure


  • Finally, the next evolution of HP’s data center strategy – the HP Performance-Optimized Datacenter (HP POD), a complete computing environment that delivers the power, performance and density you need in a 40 foot data center container. The HP POD is part of a complete data center portfolio from HP, from data center strategy and planning, to innovative products and comprehensive global support.  This means best-in-class technology to provide flexible, dense and energy-efficient data centers that can be deployed in weeks rather than months or years.

From the desktop to the data center, HP helps you leverage your existing infrastructure and make strategic technology investments so you can get more business done.
