It’s official—the proliferation of compute devices is staggering; with compute pretty much everywhere you look these days – just a bit different than when I was a teen.
It’s the situation everyone dreads. The day your IT system goes down, you can’t fix it yourself and the service call begins. The first half hour is the worst. Digging through spreadsheets and log files to find and communicate dozens of pieces of data: model name, serial numbers, alert codes, warranty and contract terms and on and on. Only then can you begin to solve your problem.
In today’s data centers, server deployment can be time consuming and problematic. In the past, you needed multiple tools to setup and deploy a server, requiring hours to get a server up and running. In the here and now, IT admins need tools that simplify and automate the process so they can spend more time on strategic initiatives that benefit the business.
Today’s data center complexity often leads to equally complex system problems and we all know that troubleshooting them can be a tedious, manual task. System admins need cutting-edge diagnostic tools to quickly find and fix their toughest issues and now HP has exactly that. HP Active Health System is a NEW capability built in to all HP ProLiant Gen8 servers that provides continuous, proactive health monitoring of over 1,600 system parameters. Think of it as “mission control” for your server!
So who of you are NOT planning to increase the amount of compute and storage capacity to your data center over the next year or so? No one? I thought so.
Well as the number, complexity and required performance of applications increase I bet you’re all finding that the space, power and cooling capacity required to host the additional systems is at a premium.
The new HP ProLiant Gen8 line of servers are complemented with the next generation of Insight Control, version 7.0. For the first time, HP will deliver a set of powerful server management capabilities that no longer require installation of software agents, dramatically simplifying the initial set up and maintenance of server management.
Today, HP announces a new generation of servers. Behind this is a bold initiative we call Project Voyager, a multi-year journey aimed at radically simplifying the data center experience for our SMB, enterprise, and service provider customers.
