The latest generation of HP ProLiant G7 servers combines intuitive, integrated technologies and easy-to-use software with AMD Opteron™ 6200 Series processors to help administrators optimize workloads, accelerate virtualization and process more data in less time.
This slideshow will explore the ways that HP ProLiant G7 servers change the economics of server purchasing decisions and explore how these servers can help businesses with some of the virtualization projects they will be considering in the near future.
The Power of Virtualization — Beyond Server Consolidation It's a simple notion: having fewer servers means a lower power footprint. That's one of the top motivations driving enterprises to server virtualization. But it's not enough to just consolidate IT resources and run more virtual machines on that smaller footprint. IT also needs to proactively manage power capacity to maximize the efficiencies gained through virtualization. This white paper discusses the benefits of combining power distribution and supply components with management software to automatically track new server installations and provide higher precision, control and automation to power distribution.
Scaling the Promise of Virtualization — Less is More with Server VirtualizationMany enterprises are consolidating to fewer physical servers by creating more and more virtual machines. This growing phenomenon and the need to implement next-generation IT technologies — such as advanced analytics and scalable Web — is generating demand for more robust servers with enhanced performance. Increased core density and memory scalability are the keys to seamlessly handling those increased workloads. Read this white paper to learn how more robust servers based on industry-leading 16-core processors can provide the performance and scalability to address increasing workloads, with a lower overall power and thermal footprint.
Virtual Performance Matters — Virtualization Challenges Doing more with less is a key imperative for most IT organizations, hence the growing reliance on server virtualization. But without the right management tools, virtualized servers can quickly sprawl out of control and overrun IT's ability to manage them effectively. As organizations look to virtualization as the road to greater consolidation and scalability, read this white paper to discover the recipe for managing virtualization performance: hardware that satisfies growing demands and the ability to effectively meet expectations, along with an integrated management software solution to proactively monitor server health, performance and power usage.
