HP's Converged Infrastructure continues to eliminate costly and rigid IT silos by aggressively converging the server, storage and network facilities, while continually improving things (like the graphical template of the entire workload) to make it easier to manage your data center. The infrastructure delivers a new level of simplicity, integration and automation that lowers costs, flexibly responds to changes and lowers acquisition expense, all while leveraging RHEL 6's increased performance and virtualization characteristics. Leveraging an 11+-year collaboration in various aspects of networking, storage, virtualization and more, HP and RHEL 6 provide a number of improvements for your data center.
HP and Red Hat work together continuously to innovate data center construction and management - not just in the expected areas of performance, but in energy savings as well. Every HP BladeSystem server running RHEL 6 has the ability to throttle pretty much every available resource, to optimize power consumption while maintaining redundancy. Power and cooling management are *big* differentiators that pay off in any size data center.
RHEL 6 rocks on HP's top-selling BL490c G7.
Known as "the" virtualization blade, the HP ProLiant BL490c G7 Server is characterized by its memorydensity in a half-height form factor. It provides 18 DIMMs, 6 or 4 core Intel® Xeon® 5600 Series
processors, converged network support for up to 24 NICs, powerful Integrated Lights-Out 3 (iLO 3),
and firmware-based SATA RAID. With RHEL 6, virtualization is fully integrated and based on the KVM hypervisor. RHEL6 includes a consistent environment for applications across multiple physical and virtual systems, which simplifies the adoption of virtualization with the BL490c G7. In addition, RHEL 6 on HP provides a platform optimized for scalability, I/O performance and flexibility, and complements HP's related hardware features.
And we offer migration services to plan, execute and support your migration from Solaris to RHEL6.
