HP ProLiant Gen8Servers Self-Sufficient ServersThe World’s Most
Making the Cloud Self-SufficientHP ProLiant Gen 8 servers extend HPs portfolio as part of ProjectVoyager,HPs multiyear transformation plan for the server market.The new 4-socket ProLiant BL660c and DL560Gen8 servers are density-optimized to deliverincreased compute power in less space.The e-Series portfolio — the new 1-socketHP ProLiant DL320e and ML310e ProLiant Gen8servers — is ideally suited for entry-levelworkloads.
Making the Cloud Self-Sufficient All four servers enable: fast return on end-to-end and provide a investment – the 4- virtualization foundation forsocket servers provide creating private and ROI within 3 months hybrid clouds
Who needs self-sufficient servers?IT does, and for several good reasons. Most important: Manual server operations are dragging IT down, making it harder to implement private and hybrid clouds.
Who needs self-sufficient servers? A recent HP study found: manual operations cost companies 57% $24 million of server outages are tied to over three years human error manual facility optimization drives up unplanned downtime costs clients energy costs to about $29 million $10 million over three years an hour HP’s ProLiant Gen8 servers lift IT up with automation that boosts productivity and saves money.SOURCE: HP ProLiant Gen8 Spiceworks Webinar_7-31-12_Rebranded

Troubleshooting becomes trouble-free ...... with HP Active Health System, a 24/ mission control for your server. 7 IT gets 4x HP Active Health System is an essential component of the HP iLO Management Engine. It wraps diagnostics, tools and scanners into a single interface. Using Active as much Health System, IT gains access to nearly 1,700 system information parameters – up from about 420 parameters that were 5x monitored previously. Up to a year’s worth of data can be exported and uploaded to HP Service, giving users a much higher faster. level of HP support.
Active Health = Deep Analysis The Active Health System delivers maximum uptime through : Automated Diagnostics Alerting monitoringSecurity is paramount. All logs are stored on the server and stay there, and only information about system items is collected. You can also turn off any monitoring at any time via iLO. This keeps your cloud up and running – and keeps end users satisfied.
