Provisioning the hardware infrastructure for massive scale-out and the cloud-enabling data center requires servers and storage designed for scale, delivering maximum performance, combined with extreme density and power efficiency. Not to mention affordability, reliability and manageability when deployed in large numbers.
In addition to HP’s extensive product portfolio, HP has designed solutions based on the requirements of scale-out customers and offers an optimized series of products specifically designed for massive scale-out in Enterprise, HPC and cloud computing environments.
HP BladeSystem ProLiant BL2x220c
HP BladeSystem c-Class is designed for performance density, power & cooling efficiency, and manageability, making it the ideal platform for scale-out, from small workgroup and remote site solutions to some of the most massive scale-out environments in the world. With the broadest product set in the industry, an HP BladeSystem solution can be tailored to virtually every customer workload.
The new HP ProLiant BL2x220chas been designed from the ground up for the unique demands of massive scale-out and cloud data centers. The world’s first 2 in 1 blade server, the BL2x220c has 2 independent servers in 1 blade enclosure, essentially doubling compute performance without increasing the size of the data center.
The HP StorageWorks 9100 Extreme Data Storage System
The HP StorageWorks 9100 Extreme Data Storage System is a scale-out storage infrastructure built for the next generation of massive scale-out and cloud-enabled data centers. It is specifically designed to be extremely scalable, easy to manage, and incredibly affordable with great performance and availability for service providers and enterprise customers alike. Its ability to scale beyond traditional storage systems in both capacity and performance independently enables data and content-rich applications to expand rapidly when required.
Today’s data centers are running out of physical space and require proficient low cost solutions. New designs in HP rack-mount servers provide blade-like compute density without the blade infrastructure overhead. These servers are designed to deliver high compute density and power efficiencies that can be utilized in existing rack-mount infrastructures. They are built specifically to meet requirements of each application and offer a low total cost of ownership.
