HP has unveiled its ProLiant Generation 8 (Gen8) line of servers as a result of a $US300 million, two-year program called Project Voyager.
Project Voyager is HP’s initiative in redefining data centre economics by computerising each phase of the server life cycle.
HP ProLiant servers leverage the ProActive Insight architecture, a combination of tightly integrated hardware and software, to deliver intelligence and management of server health, power usage and other important diagnostics.
The built-in location awareness, real-time temperature data and automatic power tracking enables automation of energy optimisation in datacentres.
It aims to speed up application deployment by automating manual tasks, improve data-intensive storage performance, double the compute-per-watt capacity and improve first time issue resolution rates.
