HP and AMD Deliver Unmatched Performance
SEATTLE, Nov. 14, 2011 – HP today introduced HP ProLiant G7 servers featuring AMD Opteron 6200 Series processors, which can improve data center efficiency, scalability and performance up to 30 percent to support large-scale, virtualized and database workloads.
A full datacentre rack populated with HP Proliant G7′s will provide 2,048 cores and 33 percent more cores for highly concurrent high-performance computing workloads, to deliver up to 35 percent greater performance over legacy offerings.
To help organizations achieve the advantages of virtualization, HP ProLiant G7 servers with AMD Opteron offer substantially lower cost per virtual machine compared to previous generations of AMD Opteron servers. The new servers deliver return on investment in as few as 30 days by consolidating physical dual-socket servers at a ratio of 23 to 1, significantly increasing the number of virtual machines supported on a single blade platform.
