HP announced the expansion of its compute portfolio with new platforms optimized for mission-critical environments. As the next milestone in HP’s Compute strategy, these platforms run the most demanding mission-critical workloads on x86 architectures with higher levels of performance, scalability, availability and efficiency.
Customers with mission-critical environments and revenue-generating applications cannot tolerate downtime or slow business performance. As a result, mission-critical workloads must meet the most stringent service level agreements (SLAs) in the industry, often with zero unplanned downtime requirements.
HP Integrity Superdome X and HP Integrity NonStop X are tailored for the most demanding mission-critical workloads. By extending these platforms to highly scalable x86 environments, HP is bringing mission-critical solutions to a broader market.
These servers help customers achieve better business results by:
Boosting business performance to grow revenue, margin and market share,Providing continuous service availability with minimal or even zero application downtime; and Reducing complexity and cost with breakthrough efficiency.
“In today’s always-on world, service outages and slow response times result in lost revenue,” said Ric Lewis, vice president and general manager, Enterprise Server Business, HP. “HP is extending our vast expertise in building mission-critical environments to help customers achieve the best business performance for large-scale workloads on an efficient x86 infrastructure.”
Pricing and availability– The HP Integrity Superdome X is available now through HP and worldwide channel partners, and the HP Integrity NonStop X is expected to be available in March 2015. HP Financial Services provides investment and migration solutions including Technology Refresh for Compute, which provides flexible payment options, trade in, duel usage and transition services designed to help accelerate the migration to the new era of compute.(6) Pricing will vary based on model and customer configurations.
