For service providers with hyperscale architectures HP has announced HPCloudline to make their data centers efficient and increase cloud service agility.
HP is committed to open initiatives through collaboration with various eco-system partners. With HP Cloudline, HP is further extending its open infrastructure vision from cloud and network switches to include servers.
“The business success of today’s service providers is directly correlated with their ability to cost-effectively acquire and operate their IT infrastructure to meet customer demand,” said, Vikram K, director, Servers, HP India. “Built on open-design principles with extreme scalability, HP Cloudline servers help service providers reduce infrastructure cost and accelerate service delivery to improve business performance.”
HP Cloudline systems are built on an open design philosophy using open components to increase adaptability and facilitate IT integration. HP Cloudline supports open management tools, such as OpenStack technology, and leverages common industry interfaces, such as IPMI, in hardware and firmware. As a result, HP Cloudline easily integrates into a multi-vendor environment.
It facilitates demand-driven deployment, accelerated service delivery and cost-effective operation.
With minimalist bare-iron design, standard management interfaces, a select set of configuration choices, equipment-based warranties and service provider-optimized support, the first generation of HP Cloudline rack servers are powered by the latest Intel Xeon processor E5 v3 series product family. The portfolio currently includes: CL7300, CL7100, CL2200, CL2100 and CL1100.
