Networking equipment major Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced HPE ProLiant Gen9 server — expanding its server range focusing on innovations.
HPE, which competes with IBM, said the new HPE ProLiant Gen9 servers extend its leadership with industry-first support for Persistent Memory.
Persistent Memory technology combines the performance of memory and the persistence of storage to deliver new levels of application performance.
HPE says HPE ProLiant Gen9 server helps enterprise customers modernize their data centers.
Peter Schrady, senior vice president of HPE ProLiant Servers and Enterprise & SMB Segments, said: “We are delivering Persistent Memory hardware and software ecosystem into server portfolio, allowing customers to increase agility, protect critical information and deliver new applications and services more quickly.”
The new HPE ProLiant Gen9 servers are optimized for the first product in the HPE Persistent Memory portfolio, the HPE 8GB NVDIMM. This technology is designed to accelerate database and analytic workloads and is ideal for any applications that are constrained by traditional storage bottlenecks.
The HPE 8GB NVDIMM includes back-up power from the HPE Smart Storage Battery, which supports up to 16 NVDIMMs for moving data from DRAM to Flash when power is lost.
HPE ProLiant Gen9 servers are designed to support up to 22 cores and memory speeds of up to 2400MT/s. Intel Xeon E5-2600 v41 processor offers up to 25 percent performance gains. Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 processors include virtualization enhancements, security and improved orchestration capabilities.
HPE DDR4 2400 MHz memory is available in a variety of capacities starting at 8GB. HPE 128GB LRDIMMs offer extra density that delivers up to 23 percent better performance.
HPE NVMe SSDs offer up to 2TB of storage in a flexible package that includes Express Bay for front access to drives that are designed for big-ticket jobs, including online transaction processing, business intelligence and Big Data analytics.
Adding TCG Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 specification 1.16 to HPE ProLiant Gen 9 servers provides a tamper-resistant environment to prevent unauthorized access to servers. TPM supports Microsoft BitLocker, which stores authentication elements, such as passwords and encryption keys.
“Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 product offers customers the performance, orchestration and security features they need to adopt cloud computing with confidence,” said Lisa Spelman, vice president of Marketing, Intel Data Center Group.
