Unleash the power of your business data using the HP ProLiant Scale-Up x86 Server Portfolio

Is it just me or does my household typify the norm? My home currently has more devices creating and consuming data than people living in it by a ratio of about 4 to 1. In fact we seem to have this never ending discussion (others refer to it as a debate) on who in the family is responsible for consuming and producing the most data—spurred on by the friendly mobile carrier reminder texts that we’ve almost exceeded our data usage plan. But what we as consumers create and consume is not even close to the massive amount of data that large enterprise business produce and process on a daily basis.


HP Offers the Right Compute for Scale-up x86 Workloads

A critical rule of thumb to live by –especially in information technology—is  that one size does not fit all. This is especially true when you’re looking to deploy a scale-up x86 server to meet your consolidation, data analysis or business processing needs. Depending on the type of workload being implemented, varying factors such as performance, scalability, reliability, efficiency and performance density are important and need to be factored into the equation. At HP, we are implementing a vision of providing a broad family of scale-up x86 servers that meet these diverse requirements.
