  2. 2. Armed with 22 years of client insight and twoyears of dedicated design research, our engineersrethought virtually every aspect of server designand serviceability.Servers so intuitive because they were designed Here’s another example: After analyzing motherboard failures, we found that the most common cause of failure was improperly insertedfor the way you work processors. This finding gave rise to the HP Smart Socket guide. ItFrom the moment your first HP ProLiant Gen8 server emerges from the allows you to confidently add or upgrade processors without the fearbox, you will feel, see, and sense the built-in quality. Guided by our of bending pins that lead to motherboard failure and replacement.“Client-2-Innovation” design philosophy, HP engineers and developers We also addressed issues related to troublesome memory errors andcreated more than 150 innovations that help you get tasks done replacements. Next-generation ProLiant servers make it all easiersimply, reliably, and with confidence. These next-generation servers with certified HP SmartMemory that includes a built-in brain andwere designed for the way you work. new diagnostic algorithms that track errors, identify trends, andClients who have trusted ProLiant servers for years will be instantly resolve issues proactively.familiar with the consistent experience and yet appreciative of theattention to detail of the new features and design.

Armed with 22 years of client insight and two years of dedicatedThese benefits are delivered by a unique set of ProLiant innovations design research, our engineers rethought virtually every aspect ofthat encompass designed-in quality, hassle-free serviceability, and server design and serviceability. Cables were reduced and takenintuitive simplicity. out of your way. Tool-less touch points were added and simplified. Components were made smarter, and labels more intuitive.Designed-in quality Components were precisely located so that servicing one wouldn’t accidentally impact another.Virtually eliminate common problems that cause downtimeand data loss. In next-generation ProLiant servers, clear baffles let you easilyAfter examining more than 100,000 server incidents that led to see which processors and memory slots are populated when youdowntime, system damage, and data loss, HP engineers found that configure or service a system. Snap and Go rack rails reduce frictionmost problems happen when administrators physically interact with with a high quality ball-bearing design, cutting deployment time ofservers. To help prevent these problems, next-generation HP ProLiant rack-mount servers in half. Consistent use of color and shapes ofservers feature a variety of HP-developed intelligent components that touch points lets you quickly recognize what to do and how to do itactively assist administrators with common service tasks—and help when installing or servicing your servers.
