HP launches compute platforms and solutions for data-intensive workloads, including the release of the HP ProLiant DL580 Gen9 Server. HP continues the strong tradition established by its previous generation servers and proves once again its powerful capability to deliver the right compute, for the right workload at the right economics.

  • Achieved the #1 four-processor (4P) result on the non-clustered TPC-H benchmark at the 10000 GB scale factor using the latest Intel Xeon Processor technology1, coming within 7% of the result of an eight-processor system [or “achieving 93% of the performance of an eight-processor system”]
    • #1 price/performance in non-clustered 10000GB scale factor at $1.82/QphH @ 10000GB.
    • The only non-clustered platform to achieve under $2.00/QphH at the 10000GB scale factor.
    • 50% better performance than Gen8.
  • Achieved multiple records on the SPEC CPU2006 benchmark across several metrics2
    • #1 overall and #1 4P SPECfp results on both the SPECfp_base20062 and SPECfp2006 metrics.
    • #1 4P SPECint result on both the SPECint_base20062 and SPECin2006 metrics.
  • Set world record on the SPEC OMP2012 benchmark3
    • Overall world record for peak results on the SPEC OMP2012 benchmark with a score of 21.5 SPECompG_peak2012.
    • #1 overall 4P base result with SPECompG_base2012.
