HP announced the new HP Cloudline server family offering low cost, flexible operations, as well as capacity on demand for the service provider market. The new open compute platforms are an outgrowth of a joint venture involving HP and Taiwan-based electronics manufacturing company Foxconn. The HP Cloudline servers are built around open standards, delivering an adaptable platform that facilitates integration into a multi-vendor environment.
“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 Alain Andreoli, senior vice president and general manager, HP Servers. “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 servers are optimized for cloud platforms, web servers, content delivery and Big Data applications. In addition, HP Cloudline can assist software development through its optimized integration with the HP Helion Development Platform.
HP currently offers the following range of HP Cloudline server configurations featuring the latest Intel Xeon E5 v3 processors:
- CL7300 – A 2P server sled for memory and storage–rich compute applications.
- CL7100 – A 2P server sled for memory and storage–rich compute applications.
- CL2200 – A high-capacity, low-cost 2U 2P server for big data and storage-intensive cloud applications.
- CL2100 – A multipurpose 1U 2P server for memory and storage–rich compute applications.
- CL1100 – A low-cost 1U 2P server made to deliver efficient front-end web performance.
Comprehensive support for HP Cloudline servers, including hardware support, training and technical support, is available through HP Technology Services. HP Financial Services can help with budgeting, while a “pay-as-you-grow” option through the HP Flexible Capacity model can help customer’s enhanced scalability.
