HP ProLiant Gen8 Servers

Released this month are the Gen8 HP ProLiant servers. Available in DL, ML, SL and Workstation format and featuring Intel's Sandy Bridge processor architecture - they're set to drastically improve on the G7's already impressive abilities.

HP's tests have shown a 33% increase in Administrator productivity, with a 66% faster problem resolution when using Gen8 Servers. Couple this with a 6x performance increase around the bottleneck of Storage for applications.

There's also battery-less FBWC, meaning less trips to your data centre. With GPS enabled on the Gen8's, and automatic power topology - installation and deployment has never been quicker. Other 'human error' reduction techniques include 'Do not remove' LEDs on the HDDs.
