Bangalore: HP introduced three HP ProLiant G7 server platforms that offer a significant performance boost and enhanced power savings over previous generations.

Delivering a 23:1 consolidation ratio, HP ProLiant G7 servers with AMD Opteron 6100 Series processors increase operational efficiencies, paying for themselves in as little as two months. The line includes the HP ProLiant DL165 G7 and HP ProLiant DL385 G7 rack-optimized servers, as well as the HP ProLiant SL165z G7 scale-out 'skinless' server.

HP ProLiant servers are part of the HP Converged Infrastructure portfolio, which integrates servers, storage, network devices and facility resources into a common environment, allowing IT to rapidly respond to business demands. HP ProLiant servers provide modular, standards-based building blocks that advance clients toward a converged infrastructure.

"Customers in Asia Pacific want the best possible return on their server investments, allowing them to channel valuable resources towards innovation. The new HP ProLiant G7 boosts systems performance while utilizing fewer servers than previously needed, allowing customers to reduce capital expenditures, energy costs and software licensing fees by 97 percent," said Rajesh Dhar, Director, Industry Standard Servers, HP India.

HP ProLiant servers include HP Thermal Logic technologies to reduce power consumption by as much as 96 percent. Power savings are achieved through the combination of the following energy-saving features: HP Sea of Sensors, HP Dynamic Power Capping technology in HP Insight Control, HP Power.

In addition, energy-efficiency innovations in the HP ProLiant platforms, combined with the new AMD Opteron 6100 Series processors, deliver a 27 times performance-per-watt increase.

The new HP ProLiant DL165, DL385 and SL165z G7 platforms are expected to be available next month worldwide. Prices for HP ProLiant G7 servers start at $1,449 and vary based on specific configurations.
