These low power servers share management, power, cooling, networking,
and storage. This architecture is key to achieving 8x efficiency at
scale, and enabling 3x faster innovation cycle.
Speaking at the briefing, HP Enterprise Business Sri Lanka and
Maldives Country Manager Shiran Perera launching the new server to the
local market said, the server was very much power efficient and very
green because of that and condensed.
He said it was one tenth of the size of the ordinary server and the
fundamental difference in the technology was using the processor of the
mobile phone on the computer or ARM processors. Because of that
differentiation from the traditional micro processors on a desktop or
laptop there was a fundamental difference in this technology which
comprises Moonshot technology along with chip technology of the mobile
phone. "Its affordability and power consumption being very low can drive
a lot of applications in web searching and web engines."
He said companies using these new servers could bring down their Op
Ex substantially because of its low power consumption.
"HP's is clearly the most established leader in the cloud computing
space. There are already more than 1,000 HP Cloud System users, 6,000 HP
Public Cloud users, more than 130 Cloud Centers of Excellence with
partners and more than 80 Cloud Agile partners.
In addition, HP also does cloud hosting for more than 200 customers
and more than 40% of the Fortune 100 companies use HP Converged cloud."
Cloud Computing is a perfect match for big data since cloud computing
provides unlimited resources on demand.
While two years ago, Cloud computing was appealing mainly because of
its "pay per use" model (ideal in tough economic times), it is becoming
more important because it is the enabler of big data analytic.
The disruption caused by the mobility explosion has reshaped the IT
landscape more dramatically than any other technology since the PC
revolution of the early 1980s.
HP has a broad mobility portfolio, beginning with hand held devices
and compatible software aimed at mobile users, and moving up to both
fixed and wireless capabilities that enable users to have controlled
access in BYOD environments.
HP offers software tools that are strongly positioned for mobility,
and in its services area, the company provides advisory and consulting
services around mobile strategy. Big Data and Mobility go hand in hand.
