Stefanie Hansel is the responsible product manager at HP for Rack & Power Solutions, covering HP Europe, Middle East & Africa. Today, she'll talk about the advantages HP Qualified Options have for you and your customers.
An average server customer needs more than 10 options per system, including additional memory modules, hard drives and operating systems, as well as raid controllers and Network interface adapters – short NICs. In addition to these they need Racks, uninterrupted power supplies – better known as UPS, PDUs – which stands for power distribution units and KVM solutions, KVM (Keyboard Video Mouse).
Whether you search for an upgrade of an existing HP ProLiant Server, refresh your existing IT Infrastructure or invest into a new HP ProLiant Server: HP offers the right options for every need and with its broad portfolio covers a wide bandwidth for your customers needs.
Customized for HP ProLiant, Integrity and Storage Works Systems HP Qualified Options passed our rigorous testing and qualification processes and at the same time are easy in installation, maintenance and upgrades.
From a single server up to a data center - HP Qualified Options unleash the power of your IT – with products that fit to the specific needs.
Other manufacturer offers can't provide the same amount of security, availability and efficiency and providing cost reductions and Individuality at the same time. That's the characteristics of HP Qualified Options.
HP Care Pack Services for Server and Storage Systems offer support at no additional cost for all HP Qualified Options which are built into the server or storage systems of the customers at the time of purchase or later. This free of charge support is valid for most of the external HP Options such as UPS, PDU, Rack Consoles and KVM switches as well.
Especially for mid-size customers with limited IT budget, HP Options and services are the right way to utilize their restricted resources. Cost-sensitive NICs, modular controllers for HBA functionality and HP Software enable administrators to access many servers remotely and at the same time.
Today, an important factor is performance, as the speed in today's business requires a fast operating IT-organization. HP supports its customers to extend the capacity of their IT environment. HP hard drives are offering a higher storage capacity and more power, HP memory easier upgrade possibilities and the DDR3 technology a duplication of bandwidth.
Customers set a high value on low energy costs these days. To lower them, customers must get the maximum out of each watt. With HP Qualified Options and Services for energy efficient solutions it's easy to achieve.
HP's 94% efficient common slot power supplies and dynamic power capping ensure a lower power consumption, as well as optimized cable management in the rack providing more efficient cooling.
Memory modules support cost reduction with their DDR3 Technology due to voltage- and energy idle sensors. But all HP Qualified Options are characterized through highest energy efficiency.
Room for Servers and data centers is limited. With HP Qualified Options and services your customers can use their available space better. This starts with single options like the quad-port NIC for higher port-density or the 600 GB hard drives with more capacity on the same footprint.
But HP also offers solutions for the entire data center. The HP Modular Cooling System is a space saving Rack perfectly tailored to HP ProLiant Technology and high density computing. Due to its integrated water cooling it helps to cool high server density and at the same time save costs in power consumption.
A new product in the HP Portfolio is the performance optimized data center – POD in short, which is a mobile Data center completely pre-configured to fit your individual needs. Imagine a transport container in which a complete data center is stored. The advantages are high availability, a complete data center can't be build in 8 weeks, it's efficiency and the possibility to place it outdoors. With this it's not regulated by the space in your data center and can be moved any time.
HP Qualified Options will help you to offer your customers a solution perfectly designed for their needs and at the same time offer the highest amount of quality, security, availability and efficiency. Don't forget to offer the appropriate HP Qualified Options for each of your projects.
