Responding to the demand for continuous application availability due to trends driven by cloud, mobility and big data, HP (HPQ) announced enhancements to the HP-UX operating environment and HP CloudSystem Matrix with HP-UX, as well as new HP Integrity NonStop entry-class servers. As a continuation of Project Odyssey, a project to redefine the future of mission-critical computing, HP is expanding its offerings for enterprises with new enhancements that deliver industry-leading availability and increased performance for mission-critical workloads.
With the latest 11i v3 release of HP-UX customers can perform zero-downtime platform upgrades of virtualized applications between HP Integrity i2 and HP Integrity I4 servers. It also enables larger virtualized workloads, with double the virtual machine capacity from previous versions, now with up to 32 processor cores and 256 GB memory.
With enhancement to HP CloudSystem Matrix with HP-UX, customers can improve efficiency and service level agreement (SLA) performance, by leveraging larger cloud deployments with workloads running vPas, o with direct I/O networking. The cost of entry is lower with HP-UX private cloud deployments with new two socket license bundles. Identifying inefficient server processes to eliminate will help increase overall data center processing capacity.
“Given the increasing demands of mission critical applications, performance and uptime are critical for organizations of all sizes,” said Shannon Poulin, vice president and general manager, Enterprise Solutions Group, Intel. “HP’s new servers allow us to bring the proven capabilities of our latest Itanium processors to a full range of customers, as we continue to drive innovation and performance through the portfolio.”
HP is delivering NonStop server technology to the small to midsize enterprise market with the new HP Integrity NonStop NS2300 and NS2400 severs. These fully fault-tolerant servers offer the lowest total cost of ownership compared to any other server in its class.
HP Integrity NonStop NS2300/NS2400 commercial systems and the telecommunications-specific configurations of the DC-powered NS2400T/NS2400ST are available worldwide immediately.
