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.  

Quick videos from around HP Technology At Work, Frankfurt, Germany

Last week I was fortunate to attend HP Tech At Work in Frankfurt, Germany. I would like to share some short videos from around the event. Let me know if you were there and have any videos to share - add to this thread. Or if you did not go? Let me know if this was a good view into the event for you. It was great to meet so many people at the event and to share latest product news and roadmaps. I have two more videos I'll add to this blog shortly on the new mission critical Superdome 2 and Integrity blades.

9.9.99 to 9.9.09: the meaning of 9s

In 10 years the definition of "mission critical" has evolved and along with it the demand for continuous uptime has increased. What does "mission critical" mean these days? For me, I expect to be able to do what ever I want - banking, shopping, taking a red-eye, or writing my blog posts at what ever time I feel tickled to do so. Nothing critical about these things, but it's expected. Mission critical capabilities are even more important. In these past 10 years, the expectations have soared, putting more pressure on businesses to deliver services around-the-clock, without interruption. Predictable availability of services is a significant differentiator for businesses today. Lorraine Bartlett, VP of Marketing and Strategy for HP's Business Critical Systems pulls together her thoughts and is looking for yours at her blog on this topic here. Check it out & add your thoughts.
