This is especially true in the case of our most recent announcement. HP is leveraging our decades of industry leadership, our experience solving customer problems, and our strong relationship with AMD to bring the power of the new AMD Opteron™ 6200 series processors to our industry leading ProLiant G7 product line including the DL165, DL385, DL585, BL465c, and BL685c.
There is no better example of the strength of HP’s partnership with AMD than the latest performance results from our refreshed line of HP ProLiant G7 servers. With this week’s launch of the world’s fastest dual socket database engine1 and the largest number of VM’s on a blade2, we are once again setting the bar for performance. The combination of HP and AMD is bringing new levels of efficiency, performance, and scalability to the market with products that are ideal for key applications such as virtualization, database, and technical computing.
Whether you’re looking to reduce your data center footprint or energy costs, increase your workload capacity or performance, or insure your investment gives you room to grow, the powerful combination of ProLiant features and Opteron™ 6200 performance are there to meet your needs by providing as much as a 35% performance boost over prior generations of product.3
