HP: 27X Performance-Per-Watt Boost
Hewlett-Packard on Monday introduced three new HP ProLiant G7 servers based on the AMD Opteron 6100 Series processors. HP said the new servers deliver a 27-times performance-per-watt boost over previous generations.
The new servers also include HP Thermal Logic, which the company said can help cut power consumption as much as 96 percent using the vendor's "sea of sensors" technology that tracks and automatically adjusts server fans based on activity.
The three new rackmount server model all feature two sockets and up to 24 DIMM slots for a maximum memory capacity of up to 256 GBs.
The HP ProLiant SL165z G7 has room for up to two large form factor drives and four small factor drives. The HP ProLiant DL165 G7 can hold up to four large form factor and eight small factor drives. The HP ProLiant DL385 G7 has room for up to six large form factor and 16 small factor drives.
The new HP ProLiant G7 servers are slated to start shipping in April with prices starting at $1,449.
