We just wrapped up here in San Francisco where we participated in the Intel Xeon Processor E5 announcement at the Jewish Contemporary Museum. To an elite audience of industry press, analysts and partners, Intel gave detail on its long-awaited Xeon E5 Processor supported by real-world use cases with “joint” HP & Intel customers like Purdue University and DreamWorks.
One of the coolest parts of the Intel presentation was a side by side demonstration of a video of life in San Francisco running on the new Intel E5 vs. previous generations. You could really see the difference! They also dropped some quants on data growth that really illustrate what we talked about a few weeks ago in our announcement of Project Voyager.
This was a big day for HP too. We announced the availability of seven new HP ProLiant Gen8 Servers. Tested in more than 100 data centers by real-world customers, including Lucent, British Telecom, Nth Generation Computing and Purdue University, HP ProLiant Gen8 servers automate lifecycle management, and maximize availability by eliminating common tasks and problems.
The new server line-up includes:
