Hp Updates Cloudsystem, Integrity Servers | Data Center Knowledge

With enhancement to HP CloudSystem Matrix with HP-UX, customers can improve efficiency and service level agreement (SLA) performance, by leveraging larger cloud deployments with workloads running vPas, o with direct I/O networking. The cost of entry is lower with HP-UX private cloud deployments with new two socket license bundles. Identifying inefficient server processes to eliminate will help increase overall data center processing capacity. Given the increasing demands of mission critical applications, performance and uptime are critical for organizations of all sizes, said Shannon Poulin, vice president and general manager, Enterprise Solutions Group, Intel. HPs new servers allow us to bring the proven capabilities of our latest Itanium processors to a full range of customers, as we continue to drive innovation and performance through the portfolio. HP is delivering NonStop server technology to the small to midsize enterprise market with the new HP Integrity NonStop NS2300 and NS2400 severs.

IBM's Loss Is Hewlett-Packard Company's Gain in Hardware (HPQ, IBM)

Mark Minasi said it best at IT/Dev Connections 2013 when he simply said, "You must learn PowerShell." I think we probably repeated the statement 50 times through the week of the conference. (P.S. You'll be able to see Mark speak again at IT/Dev Connections 2014 ) HP has released version 1.1 of the company's own PowerShell cmdlets for ProLiant server hardware. The revision change brings 5 new cmdlets, IPv6 support, performance improvements with reduced code size, and bugs fixes. The HP Scripting Tools for Windows PowerShell includes a set of PowerShell cmdlets that provide configuration management for HP hardware. This release provides a set of cmdlets for managing and configuring HP iLO 3 and iLO 4 using PowerShell scripts. It provides a native PowerShell interface that simplifies writing scripts. These cmdlets provide out-of-band automation from a Windows Management workstation directly to iLO systems. The download starts here: HP Scripting Tools for Windows PowerShell Fortunately, the PowerShell download does not fall under HP's recent support change announcement , so the download is freely accessible. There are separate downloads for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows and 8.1, and additionally for Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 , and Windows Server 2012 R2.

HP's PowerShell CmdLets for ProLiant Servers | PowerShell content from Windows IT Pro

Shortly after IBM reported its Q4 results, it announced a deal to sell off its low-end server business to Lenovo for $2.3 billion. This product line, known as "System x," has been losing market share recently. Revenue declined 16% in Q4, and the rate of decline ticked up to 18% in Q1, the first quarter following the announcement. Hewlett-Packard makes its move HP hasn't had an easy time in the enterprise hardware market, either. Its highly profitable Business Critical Systems products (the equivalent of IBM's System z) have been in long-term decline for several years. Business Critical Systems revenue has plummeted from $2.3 billion in FY10 to $1.2 billion last year. HP is making progress in some parts of the enterprise hardware market. However, unlike IBM, HP is making progress in other parts of the hardware market.

HP Moonshot: Micro Servers Versus Virtualisation

myloc hosting servers on shelves First, HPs Ed Ellis showed off a system based on the m700, a specialised AMD cartridge for hosted desktop infrastructure (HDI). He showed it running six times faster than a conventional virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) system. A video paused and froze when delivered through VDI, but ran smoothly over the Moonshot powered HDI. The audience was quick to point out that this wasnt actually surprising: the clue to the speedup was in the name of the technology. In a hosted system, each remote desktop gets its own micro server in the Moonshot box. In a virtual system, multiple users share a higher-powered server. So its not really surprising Moonshot serves desktops faster. The real comparison would take into account the power and space demands, and maybe the cost of the system which is what came next: we were introduced to a real HP Moonshot user: Christoph Herrnkind, chief operating officer of the German hosting company myLOC, which in the next week will start to offer dedicated servers based on Moonshot. Moonshot replaces. servers on shelves?
