HP is only company to offer energy efficient, ENERGY STAR servers

By Lauren Trost.  HP is the sole provider for energy efficient, ENERGY STAR servers!  Yep, you heard right.  HP is the first and ONLY company in the market to offer ENERGY STAR qualified servers.   While HP has announced four configurations as being ENERGY STAR qualified, the competition has not matched up.  No other company has any servers listed on the ENERGY STAR Qualified Servers list on the EPA website.   Check out the list at

These HP ENERGY STAR servers are the same energy-efficient HP ProLiant G6 platform as launched in March 2009 - but now with configurations that meet certification requirements for by the EPA. HP designed the G6 products to be dramatically more energy efficient and to be ENERGY STAR compliant, which is testament to those efforts of lowering total energy consumption.  In addition, the HP servers are already embedded with HP's exclusive Thermal Logic Technology, the combination of superior energy management and control combined with energy-efficient system design. This technology puts wasted power and cooling to work by matching resources to demand, lowering total energy consumption without sacrificing performance.

 HP ProLiant G6 Server Facts:

  • Customers can get up to 61% reduced power consumption with G6 servers.

  • Maintaining the same workload, a customer can replace nine ProLiant DL380 G4 servers with just one ProLiant DL380 G6 server, eliminating over 40,000 Kwh annually and saving over $10,000 in yearly OPEX.*

  • Consolidating from three ProLiant DL380 G5 servers to just one DL380 G6 server, customers can save about $2,500 in yearly OPEX.*

Calculation based on platform load of 50% on all generations. License per server estimated at $800.00 across all generations. Assumed average cost for DL380 G6 is $3,500.00. Assumed Energy Cost/Kilowatt = .10 Euro.
