If you want proof that "HP Means Business," look no further than the HP ProLiant SL4500. It's the first server built from the ground up to perform in big data application environments. It's not often that servers get a round of applause, but this one did at the HP Global Partner Conference during Donatelli's keynote address. The SL4500 is based on new architecture and design breakthroughs that HP says requires "50 percent less space and 61 percent less power."
Donatelli said the product gives HP partners a play in the "hottest market" out there that can be combined with HP Software's Vertica analytics software.
