A new model for Compute is needed. One that allows exponential utilization of data, and the dynamic ability to turn on and off applications and services on a per user basis, while keeping operational costs flat, or declining. The “generational” approach that has characterized the server industry for the last few decades is no longer appropriate. It is an incremental and linear solution to an exponential problem. VLCM wants you to think about compute through simplicity, savings and growth.
HP ProLiant Gen9 servers are backed by new HP Technology Services to provide customers with trusted guidance from HP and VLCM. New services include:
- 1.HP Foundation Care – simplified to three levels, all including collaborative software support to simplify choosing the right support solution
- 2.HP Proactive Care Advanced – now available across the new Gen9 portfolio, including all the benefits of Proactive Care, plus local account management for personalized advice and critical event management to quickly address complex issues.
HP Gen9 also utilizes HP OneView converged management platform delivering the Power of One- providing leading infrastructure convergence, security of federation and agility through data center automation. This automation transforms business economics by accelerating service delivery up to 66x faster- reducing data center costs up to 68 percent by cutting wait time and increasing productivity.
Experience simplicity across HP BladeSystem, ProLiant, 3PAR and Virtual Connect for seamless, cross domain management. As a single software-defined platform, HP OneView transforms how you manage your infrastructure across servers, storage, and networking in both physical and virtual environments.
See HP OneView in action- the last management tool you’ll ever want to use. Through simple convergence, HP Gen9 comes armed with tools that will make your infrastructure run more smoothly so you can focus on a proactive plan for your data center.
Redefine the Economics of the Data Center – with 3 times the compute power / $ / Sq Foot / Kilowatt enabled by new Gen9 innovations such as HP-unique PCIe accelerators, HP DDR4 SmartMemory and HP StoreVirtual VSA.
To accelerate customer migration to this new portfolio of products, the HP Financial Services team has created a unique Gen9 offer— HP Technology Refresh for Computing. By taking advantage of this offer, customers will receive the following benefits:
- Low monthly usage payments – save 10%-15% over three or four years vs. a cash purchase
- Defer payments up to 90 days
- Acquire up to 12 months of planned server capacity upfront, pay as you deploy it
With 16 DIMM slots, 92 percent efficient power supply, ASHRAE A3/A4 compliance (for higher
ambient temperature support), dense 2P/1U design, and optional FlexibleLOM capability, the ProLiant DL160 Gen9 Server enables service providers to minimize the operational costs of energy and space—making it a perfect match for today’s hyperscale environments. Faced with an ever-growing customer base, service providers need an agile IT infrastructure that scales readily and consumes minimal space and energy. SMBs in particular need new ways to grow their businesses and remain competitive in today's evolving business environment.
Industry analysts report that the server is being commoditized. They’re right. The server as we know it, and the incremental, generational approach will no longer suffice to address today and tomorrow’s business problems. Companies need scalable solutions that can grow right along with their businesses. Ideally, they want “everything IT” converged into a single platform.
Only HP delivers the converged management platform to provision, deploy, automate, monitor, and trouble shoot all of your IT infrastructure resources. This gives you the ability to meet your operational goals in the most cost effective and reliable manner, while lowering the cost of your services. The HP management for Gen9 builds on the advancements in Gen8 and continue to lower your operating expenses, increase your performance, improve efficiency, and reduce your support costs.
Dramatically accelerate Time to Service – with 66X faster service delivery enabled by HP OneView, which is now available on HP ProLiant rack servers. Drastically improve the Value of Service – with 4X better workload performance enabled by new Gen9 innovations including HP Virtual Connect, HP OneView, iLO Advanced, Smart Memory, Smart Storage, Smart Cache and PCIe Accelerators.
