HP optimise la fiabilité des Data Centers tout en réduisant les coûts de consommation d'énergie
PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 30, 2006 – HP today unveiled technology that can slash data center energy bills while increasing system reliability.
Designed to support HP’s broad
portfolio of enterprise servers and storage systems,
the new power
management and cooling technologies include:
Managing power, cooling and associated costs is an ever-growing challenge for IT departments of any size. Analyst firm IDC estimates that it would cost almost $400,000 annually to power a 1,000 volume server-unit data center.(1) In the last 10 years, server power densities have increased tenfold; this year 15-kilowatt racks have hit the market. HP’s new solutions can deliver significant cost savings by dramatically reducing energy use and increasing data center utilization. At the same time, the technologies help prepare customers for future generations of increasingly powerful, and energy thirsty, IT systems.
“ HP’s power and cooling technologies are helping customers win the war on heat,” said Paul Perez, vice president, storage, networking and infrastructure, Industry Standard Servers, HP. “In combination with HP’s best practices to optimize data center operations, these solutions offer customers high-density IT resources that improve overall cost, performance and reliability.” HP’s power and cooling technologies – which address the processor all the way to the data center – support the HP ProLiant, BladeSystem, Integrity, Integrity NonStop and HP 9000 server families as well as HP StorageWorks MSA, EVA and XP arrays.
“ HP’s unique power and cooling approach has helped us better scale our infrastructure and manage our utility costs,” said Mitchell Cipriano, vice president, marketing, OpSource, Inc. “We use upwards of 700 HP BladeSystem servers in our two data centers, so having an intelligent, energy-efficient infrastructure allows us to power more servers and network switches than with conventional discrete systems. HP BladeSystem servers, coupled with HP Systems Insight Manager, are instrumental in lowering our IT costs and making OpSource more efficient and price competitive in the software as a service market.”
The new power and cooling offerings include:
- HP 10000 G2 Series Rack – a standard, unified
rack that accommodates all HP rack-mounted server and
storage products. The rack enables simpler, faster
data center deployments and a significant return on
investment as it standardizes from seven previously
incompatible HP racks to a single rack and power platform.
To address cooling, the rack’s innovative design
provides efficient convection cooling and improved
ventilation over previous racks.
Additionally, HP offers a range of fixed price and custom-tailored assessment and site planning services to help customers evaluate their power and cooling environments and understand how to use resources more efficiently. Services for data centers include the HP Data Center Assessment Service, HP Data Center Thermal Assessment Service, and HP Data Center Site Planning Service. HP also plans to offer a range of implementation and support services for the HP Modular Cooling System.
