HP unveils new scale-out servers

The new ProLiant boxes pack more power into less space

Hewlett-Packard on Monday announced a pair of servers aimed at companies that want to build large-scale computing clusters while maximizing data center space.

The ProLiant BL2x220c G6 delivers a pair of blades in the space of a single machine, and memory capacity has been boosted by a third over the last generation, according to HP.

Meanwhile, the new ProLiant SL165z G6 uses Advanced Micro Devices chips, features an 18 percent reduction in power usage and employs HP's lighter-weight "skinless" design, which cuts space and shipping costs, the company said.

The two servers join HP's Extreme Scale-Out portfolio, which was announced earlier this year.

In a related announcement Monday, Adaptive Computing said HP will resell its Adaptive Computing Suite for use with ProLiant and BladeSystem servers. ACS provides workload management, job scheduling and provisioning.

The announcements coincide with the SC supercomputing conference, which is ongoing this week in Portland, Oregon.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
