Top Enterprise Technology Companies Embrace NVIDIA GRID

NVIDIA today announced that enterprises can for the first time seamlessly deliver GPU-accelerated virtual desktops and professional-graphics applications from the cloud to any device, anytime, anywhere. By using NVIDIA GRID technology, businesses are able to realize the benefits of virtualization -- security, manageability and flexibility -- while delivering the full PC experience that users expect. Dell, HP and IBM are offering NVIDIA GRID-based servers. Citrix, Microsoft and VMware are offering NVIDIA GRID-enabled software.

"IT departments face a growing challenge: employees increasingly bring their own devices to work, and expect mobility and a great experience," said Jen-Hsun Huang, co-founder and chief executive officer, NVIDIA. "Virtualization enables them to provide secure, consistent access to company resources, but at the expense of performance and features. GRID eliminates this compromise." At the heart of NVIDIA GRID enterprise solutions are NVIDIA GRID VGX software -- a complete stack of GPU virtualization, remoting and management libraries -- and NVIDIA GRID K1 and K2 boards, which are purpose-built for demanding server environments.

HP Delivers Industry's First Purpose-Built Server for Big Data

HP today unveiled the industry's first server built to help clients operationalize Big Data, drive new business opportunities and save up to $1 million over three years.

With the advent of Big Data software and the promise that it brings, many organizations have tried to deploy these solutions on existing architectures not designed to handle the specific needs of these workloads. As a result, the outcomes from these early deployments have been suboptimal from a performance and cost perspective.

AMD-Based HP Servers Shatter Performance Record by 40 Percent

AMD today announced that a cluster of HP ProLiant BL465c Gen8 servers utilizing AMD Opteron 6200 Series processors has achieved the highest VMmark 2.1 score ever posted, representing a 40 percent increase over the next best score. VMmark is VMware's popular multi-server benchmarking tool that measures platform performance and scalability of virtualized environments. The record score of 59.99 at 62 tiles displaced a score of 42.79 at 36 tiles -- a 40 percent increase in performance and a 72 percent increase in the number of virtual machines (VMs).

For the benchmark, HP used 16 HP ProLiant BL465c Gen8 blades, the highest volume selling blade in the world, each running two 16-core AMD Opteron 6278 processors yielding a total of 496 VMs with an average of 31 VMs per blade at a cost of $371 per virtual machine. HP BladeSystem, the industry's only Converged Infrastructure architected for any workload from client to cloud, offers the performance and scalability needed to support an ideal virtualization platform for IT professionals who are moving to dense virtualization environments as a foundation for building both public and private clouds.

HP Introduces ProLiant Gen8 Servers

HP today unveiled two new HP ProLiant Generation 8 (Gen8) four-socket servers that facilitate customers' move to cloud while delivering increased compute power in less space and a return on investment within three months.

The industry's first four-socket servers to incorporate HP ProActive Insight Architecture, the HP ProLiant BL660c and DL560 Gen8 servers significantly reduce the time spent on maintenance tasks through high levels of automation and continuous monitoring of system health, saving IT staff more than 30 days of administration time a year.

Latest HP ProLiant Gen8 Servers Integrate New AMD Opteron Processors

Today AMD announced 11 servers from its customers, including two based on the new HP ProLiant Gen8 platform, will be integrating previously unannounced versions of the award-winning high-performance AMD Opteron 6200 Series processor and the low-power AMD Opteron 4200 Series processor. These servers are based on five new AMD Opteron processors that offer increased performance without an increase in power consumption, providing customers more choice in using the world’s best price/performance x86 server processor.

Last month, HP launched two HP ProLiant Gen8 servers using the new AMD Opteron processors and plans to refresh the ProLiant DL585 G7 and the BL685c G7 later this year. Moreover, Dell is also expected to refresh its AMD offering with the latest AMD Opteron processors in the PowerEdge C6145, C6105, R415, R515, R715, R815 and the M915.

Fusion-io Powers Seven New Gen 2 HP IO Accelerators

Fusion-io today announced that it is enabling high performance database and virtualization solutions with seven new Fusion-powered HP IO Accelerator products for the industry-leading HP ProLiant and HP BladeSystem platforms. Integrated into HP ProLiant Generation 8 (Gen8) servers, the new HP IO Accelerators can boost application performance to address organizations' growing requirements to cost-effectively accelerate data-intensive applications.

To enable enterprises to cost-effectively enhance their data infrastructure, one or more HP IO Accelerators can be easily integrated within servers according to application and organizational needs. The HP IO Accelerators sit inside the server, directly on the PCIe bus with CPUs and Memory, rather than external to the server in a storage array being accessed over much slower links. The IO Accelerators boost applications by bypassing traditional storage controllers and unlocking trapped compute cycles.

HP Delivers Increased Performance, Automation With New HP ProLiant Gen8 Servers

HP today extended its HP ProLiant Generation 8 (Gen8) portfolio with new servers that deliver increased performance, simplified maintenance and improved data center uptime.

HP also announced new financial, support and partner programs, including the HP ProActive Insight Architecture Alliance, which brings together some of the world's leading technology companies to eliminate manual maintenance tasks and significantly improve data center efficiency.
