React to the speed of your business with HP Converged Systems for SAS

By Travis Kuter – HP Converged Systems


There is simply no doubting the unrelenting pace of business, and the IT industry as a whole. There is one fitting word which best describes what drives the pace. And the word I am thinking of is the word, “MORE!” IT enthusiasts continue to challenge technology companies like HP to always be doing more.


Today, HP delivers on the “More” by enhancing our recently released Converged Systems for SAS Visual Analytics by adding four new HP ProLiant Server configurations, as well as HP’s Automated-Ordering Assistant, to the mix.


And even better, these configurations can be ordered and used equally with all SAS High-Performance Analytics products such as SAS High-Performance Data Miner and High-Performance Analytics Server.


This HP Converged Systems solution combines SAS Institute’s leading in-memory analytics engine, with pre-tested, SAS approved, HP ProLiant Servers. Today, HP is adding to our SMP configuration the HP ProLiant DL560 Gen8 Server, and the HP ProLiant BL660c Gen8 Server. These latest servers are ideal for providing a four socket, dense form factor without compromising performance, scalability, expandability. Both solutions offer HP SmartMemory to prevent data loss and downtime, HP SmartDrives which help anticipate issues that can result in downtime.


In addition, the extremely versatile and popular HP ProLiant DL360p and DL380p series (providing our customer leading 2 –socket rack servers in a space saving 1U and 2U design)n are being  added to our MPP configurations. Both solutions include HP SmartDrives, Integrated Lifecycle Automation for intuitive system management as well as Automated Energy Optimization. All of this to redefine our customer’s experience and help prevent data loss, reduce downtime and improve serviceability.


We’re also including our automation assisted ordering capability which make it a breeze to automatically recommend data networking options as well as select and map data switches.


In the final analysis, HP is holding true to its tradition of doing more for IT, and more for our customers.
