Guest blog written by Chuck Klein, HP Servers


Mega trends—that include Cloud, Security, Big Data, and Mobility—are resulting in increased capacity of server infrastructure relative to space, energy and performance. Over the next 5-7 years, the need for information coupled with a continued explosion of connected devices (i.e., tablets, smartphones, intelligent cars, and sensors of all types) equates to huge increases in data center capacity and power.  These trends were the reason HP took a fresh look at server technology to support this new style of IT.  As a result, companies now have the added agility to quickly adapt to changing business needs in a cloud-based infrastructure. They now have the increased performance and scalability to support the growing number of connected devices while keeping operational costs in check—which in turn makes it easy to deploy and manage.


HP’s ProLiant Gen8 servers, the world’s most intelligent servers, support a wide range of your complex IT demands from Cloud based applications to Security, Big Data, and Mobility in a virtualized environment. Building on this foundation, the next wave of ProLiant Gen8 innovations accelerate performance of your virtualized environment and deliver the agility necessary to optimize the effectiveness of your data center.  In short, HP ProLiant Gen8 servers are faster, more agile with improved efficiencies.  With an agile and efficient data center you will now have the capability to build a strong foundation for your business, and protect your infrastructure investments.  Better yet, these customer-inspired innovations have a 5-month ROI, helping you transform your data center to better protect, compete, and grow your business today while being ready for what is next.
