New HP Solution to Save Power, Infrastructure Cost

by CXOtoday Staff    Jul 02, 2009

The HP ExSO portfolio is based on the HP ProLiant SL server family, which uses a skinless systems architecture replacing the traditional chassis and rack form factors with lightweight rail and tray design. According to HP, this can help customers dramatically reduce capital, facilities and shipping costs while using a fraction of the space normally required in a data center. Also the modular design enables customers to quickly and easily build solutions that meet extreme scale-out workload requirements.

With the HP ProLiant SL portfolio, customers can cut acquisition costs by 10 percent and power draw by 28 percent, while doubling their compute density, claimed HP.

Customers with scale-out business models need solutions that make every dollar, watt and square foot in the data center count, said Rajesh Dhar, director, Industry Standard Servers, Technology Solutions Group, HP India. The HP ProLiant SL offers pioneering customers like these the most significant design innovation since the blade form factor, allowing them to achieve an economy of scale never before possible.

HP s existing scale-out computing portfolio includes the HP ProLiant DL1000 Multi Node servers, introduced on June 2, the HP POD (Performance Optimized Datacenter), HP StorageWorks 9100 Extreme Data Storage System and the HP ProLiant 2×220c double-density blade server introduced last year.
