Server Product of the Year!


We have to pause and bow to our NonStop brethren who took home the GOLD in SearchDataCenter.com's products of the year.  Especially sweet is they knocked off the IBM z10 mainframe.

I know we tend to be a little controverstial over the years with our "Blade Everything" strategy (it really got under the rack server skin of our Dell buddies), but the NonStop BladeSystem should really bring our strategy home for you. 

The fact that the new NonStop takes advantage of a BladeSystem architecture is not what makes the product rock.  Guts are guts.  It's the brains and nervous system the NonStop team was able to build on top of it that make this solution stand out as the tops in the industry.  The fact we bladed the NonStop just adds a killer value proposition for you: 

2x the performance. 1/2 the footprint. 100% NonStop! 

You gotta love it.

I recognize that the drive to commodity, industry-standard packaging will only continue and I have to wonder how much longer IBM will stick with its proprietary "book" packaging before it too leverages blades. System p (and with it now, System i) are doing so, and the longer they wait, they more they will simply appear "me too!" ...

Congratulations .... and yes, "everything to blades" ... the more HP drives out costs, the more users elect to deploy!
