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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
