Updated HP Integrity range ‘triples performance’
Company claims new systems deliver TCO saving of more than 30%
HP sought to strengthen its mission-critical Converged Infrastructure portfolio on Monday with enhanced HP Integrity systems, HP-UX software and services to triple performance (according to in-house bench tests), boost resiliency and deliver "investment protection for critical workloads deployed into the next decade".
Based on HP enhancements and the Intel Itanium processor 9500 series, transactions are processed up to three times faster than previous generations, HP said, while using 21% less energy. As a result, HP claims clients can realise a 33% saving in total cost of ownership (TCO).
"Today's announcement delivers against HP's commitment to industry-leading innovations for the HP Integrity platform," the company said.
"With advancements in availability and reliability, HP's mission-critical Converged Infrastructure will continue to enhance established HP Integrity platforms supporting HP-UX, HP NonStop and OpenVMS operating systems. Over time, these advancements will cascade to mission-critical x86 platforms delivering a single, unified infrastructure for UNIX, Windows Server and Linux environments."
"Our mission-critical clients face ever-increasing demands for uptime, performance and security with their most critical applications," said Sandeep Chhabra, business critical systems manager, HP Middle East. "Today's announcement demonstrates HP's continued commitment to transform the server landscape with innovations to the Integrity portfolio-offered within a mission-critical Converged Infrastructure that will endure into the future."
