    HP Expands Opteron Portfolio
    Monday February 14 2005 @ 02:25PM EST

    Feb. 2005 -- HP ProLiant servers and AMD™ Opteron™ technology already deliver all the advantages of standards-based x86 computing. They’re great for businesses of all sizes wanting a broad choice of more cost-effective industry-standard solutions, especially for applications needing expanded memory capabilities and outstanding price/performance, including high-performance computing.

    Now HP is broadening its solutions with this technology by being the world’s first-Tier 1 vendor to make AMD Opteron processor-based blade servers and workstation available, plus a new two-way server that builds upon the industry-leading ProLiant DL380 family.(1) With these new products, HP now offers the industry’s most comprehensive Opteron-based portfolio.

    What's does this mean to your business?

    It means breakthrough performance and functionality at a lower cost. It can also mean more choice: the flexibility to choose the right systems for the right job — a Microsoft® Windows® or Linux®-based server or workstation ... an entry-level application server for a small business ... or an all-purpose data center workhorse for a large multi-national corporation. And because the new Opteron-based offerings are HP ProLiant servers, you'll have the ease of deployment and management control you need to dynamically link IT resources to the changing needs of the business — key to achieving an Adaptive Enterprise poised to capitalize on change.

    And it’s all from the market leader in Opteron-based servers(1) and the No. 1 provider of industry-standard x86 servers: HP(1) Which means you gain the power of a cost-effective tried-and-true 32-bit x86 solution plus a simplified growth path to 64-bit computing.

    Optimize with Opteron on ProLiant Servers

    A year ago, HP launched its first Opteron-based ProLiant servers. These included the rack-optimized two-processor ProLiant DL145 server and the four-processor ProLiant DL585 server, which went on to set many new record industry benchmarks.(2)

    It's no wonder. The AMD Opteron processor provides cutting-edge technology features — such as an integrated memory controller, 64-bit memory addressability, HyperTransport ™ technology and full-speed memory controllers. And HP optimized its server designs to take advantage of Opteron performance — resulting in servers that continue to deliver world-record benchmarks.(2)

    Maximize Applications. Do your databases and power-hungry applications need more performance to keep up with your business? Are your financial modeling and scientific applications looking for larger memory addressing? Do your servers need to manage large transaction volumes or user populations? You can help achieve these demands with Opteron-based ProLiant servers.

    HP ProLiant servers can also allow you to take advantage of enterprise-class availability features for maximum uptime. You’ll have the power to address some of the most processor-hungry scale-out applications, backed by the rock-solid reliability and design excellence of the ProLiant line.

    Manage and Virtualize. Proactive management features of the Integrated Lights-Out processor and HP Systems Insight Manager make it easier for you to deploy, manage, control, secure and virtualize your infrastructure. You'll have the capability to manage the environment seamlessly from nearly anywhere, anytime — adapting IT resources to conquer new business opportunities.

    Simplify the 64-bit Path. With simultaneous 32- and 64-bit computing capabilities, you'll be able to transition to 64-bit computing at your own pace on the same hardware, and without sacrificing performance or your x86 technology investments.

    Rack it Up. Like its partner the ProLiant DL380 (the world’s best-selling server)(1), the new ProLiant DL385 server delivers enterprise-class performance, manageability and uptime in a versatile 2U chassis. As the first HP Opteron-based enterprise-class server, the ProLiant DL385 leverages two-way Opteron processor performance and is ideal for a variety of rack deployments and demanding scale-out applications.

    Adapt Dynamically with HP BladeSystem

    Diversify. Building the right infrastructure for your business requires flexibility and choice: One size does not fit all. You have diverse demands for performance, density, power efficiency and expansion. With the introduction of the ProLiant BL25p and BL35p servers, HP offers the broadest portfolio of one-, two- and four-processor server blades to deliver the widest range of performance and form factors with more processing density and low power consumption of any blade portfolio.

    HP ProLiant BL25p and BL35p server blades are powerful and dense solutions featuring high-performance and 32/64-bit flexibility — making them especially suited to large-scale environments and clustered solutions.

    Consistent with other ProLiant blade and rack-mount server designs, the ProLiant BL25p and BL35p blade servers leverage the same leading innovations, performance, reliability, ease of use and management features.

    Virtualize and Automate. As part of the HP BladeSystem solution, the new servers are just one part of a larger infrastructure designed for greater agility. HP BladeSystem resources — storage, server, network and power — can be pooled and shared across multiple business applications and services, yet managed as easily as one machine. As business demands change, these resources can be automatically reallocated to eliminate both under-utilization and over-provisioning. That's why the HP BladeSystem approach is your fast-track to a cost-efficient and responsive Adaptive Enterprise.

    Get Intense with HP Workstations

    HP workstations are intelligently engineered in close collaboration with hardware and software partners to give you the latest high-performance technology for at a competitive price. Running on the new HP xw9300 workstation — HP's first Opteron-based workstation — you can have the ultimate 64-bit personal workstation performance and visualization for compute-intensive environments.

    Supporting, for the first time, dual PCI Express x16 graphics and dual Opteron processors, the HP xw9300 workstation meets the combined needs for computational and visualization power and I/O performance, while helping you lower total cost of ownership. Part of a complete portfolio of reliable, high-quality, easy-to-manage workstations, the HP xw9300 workstation is ideal for scientists, engineers, designers and digital artists who have extremely complex analyses and/or advanced visualization requirements.

    It's Your Choice

    As the No. 1 provider of Opteron-based servers(1), HP is already the top choice for enterprises that want to leverage leading industry-standard price/performance, innovation, versatility and value for a wide range of deployments. Opt for Opteron-based HP servers and workstations today — for 32-bit power and a 64-bit path to the future.
