HP Cloudline: A New Cost and Performance Optimized Server

The power to build your own data center platform now extends locations, data points and even entire architectures. You have the capability to create a customized infrastructure capable of meeting very specific organizational and application demands. But why is this necessary?

As an IT-enabled entity, your organization and business model are evolving rapidly. New user demands and the “always-on” generation are requiring new types of distributed access to systems and information. Users are asking for specific applications, housing very specific data points. As a manager, how do you deploy these platforms without having to incur new manufacturer costs?

Commodity systems and “white-box” servers have been around for a while. But so have challenges around support and maintenance when it comes to these types of platforms. Big shops like service providers are constantly challenged with creating platforms built on scale, performance, and cost effectiveness. Now is your chance to create a new data center and business paradigm.

In this white paper, we introduce the HP Cloudline platform. You’ll learn how you can create your own customized server infrastructure directly architected without the unnecessary bells and whistles which can add up to 20 percent in cost per server. You’ll also find out how you can deploy the only tier 1 server platform in the world which provides vanity-free simplicity, all with HP support.

Organizations are actively looking at ways they can extend their resources into the cloud to help mitigate growth challenges and optimize workload performance. The proliferation of cloud computing and mobile technologies has introduced a number of new server complexities to manage, control and optimize.

With so much more connecting into the cloud, service providers have seen a distinct boom in business. So how do you keep up? What are the big trends impacting the service provider industry and how can they create a server platform built on efficiency and scalability?

Growth in mobile and data platforms will only continue to grow. For the data center and service provider, this means constant pressure to be extremely agile and cost effective.

  • In 105 countries around the world, there are now more mobile devices than people. The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) estimates that there will be close to 7.3 billion mobile subscribers in the world this year – or more mobile devices than people on the planet.
  • Americans already own an average of three mobile devices each, according to Sophos Lab research.
  • For the first time ever, mobile apps have overtaken PC usage. These trends will cause global mobile data traffic to increase 11-fold from 2013 to 2018, surpassing 15 exabytes per month by 2018.

It’s time to take a look at customized server platforms and why this can become a critical part of your data center.

Here’s the new reality for the modern service provider: For every 600 smartphones or 120 tablets, service providers have to deploy another server. That comes at a cost and every penny spent on CapEx is one less in profit. This is where a new set of servers are creating a fresh kind of landscape designed for service providers.

Download this white paper today to see how you can create your own customized server infrastructure directly architected without the unnecessary bells and whistles which can add up to 20 percent in cost per server. Plus, discover how the Intel-Powered HP Cloudline family of servers is changing the market for service providers.
