HP Delivers ProLiant G7 Servers with AMD Opteron 6100 Series Processors

HP ProLiant G7 servers with AMD Opteron 6100 Series processors deliver more
value, rapid return on investment

HP today introduced three HP ProLiant G7 server platforms that offer a
significant performance boost and enhanced power savings over previous

Delivering a 23:1 consolidation ratio, HP ProLiant G7 servers with AMD
Opteron 6100 Series processors increase operational efficiencies, paying for
themselves in as little as two months. The line includes the HP
ProLiant DL165 G7 and HP ProLiant DL385 G7 rack-optimized servers, as well as
the HP ProLiant SL165z G7 scale-out “skinless” server.

HP ProLiant servers
are part of the HP
Converged Infrastructure portfolio, which integrates servers, storage,
network devices and facility resources into a common environment, allowing IT to
rapidly respond to business demands. HP ProLiant servers provide modular,
standards-based building blocks that advance clients toward a converged

MLS Property Information Network Inc. (MLS PIN) is one of the largest
multiple listing service (MLS) companies in the United States, serving nearly 30
thousand subscribers. The company turned to HP ProLiant servers on AMD
processors to improve customer experience.

“We face seasonal demand that increases by more than 500 percent during the
spring and, until recently, this strain on our server infrastructure affected
our ability to provide great service to our customers,” said Matt Lavallee,
director, Technology, MLS PIN. “Now, we’ve doubled the number of concurrent
users we can support while delivering dramatically faster page load times. HP’s
integrated Thermal Logic technology will help us reduce our total power and
cooling costs by 60 percent over the long term.”

Built for energy savings

HP ProLiant servers include HP Thermal
Logic technologies to reduce power consumption by as much as 96
percent. Power savings are achieved through the combination of the
following energy-saving features:

  • HP Sea of Sensors – optimizes system cooling and increases efficiency by
    automatically tracking thermal activity through a collection of up to 32 smart
    sensors placed strategically throughout the server. The sensors automatically
    adjust system components such as fans, memory and input/output processing to
    reduce energy usage.  
  • HP Dynamic Power Capping technology in HP Insight Control – improves data
    center utilization and reclaims overprovisioned energy by enabling IT managers
    to accurately monitor and control the power used by each server. By capping
    server power usage, clients can triple their data center capacity.
  • HP Power Advisor – enables clients to improve energy efficiency by more
    accurately configuring systems based on real-time power guidance for their
    specific workloads.

In addition, energy-efficiency innovations in the HP ProLiant platforms,
combined with the new AMD Opteron 6100 Series processors, deliver a 27 times
performance-per-watt increase.

Maximizes server productivity

The HP ProLiant platform offers a comprehensive set of embedded technologies
and flexible tools to maximize the productivity of an IT infrastructure,

  • HP
    Insight Control software – improves management productivity while reducing
    operational expenses up to $48,000 for every 100 users by allowing clients to
    control the management and monitoring of the server infrastructure onsite or
  • HP
    Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) Advanced – enables clients to simplify server
    management and troubleshoot problems from any location, regardless of the
    server’s operating state.
  • HP
    Insight Remote Support software – reduces issue resolution time by 20
    percent with secure remote support for HP servers and storage, including
    monitoring for hardware failure to avoid problems before they

Pricing and availability

The new HP ProLiant DL165, DL385 and SL165z G7 platforms are expected to be
available next month worldwide. Prices for HP ProLiant G7 servers start at
$1,449 and vary based on specific configurations.
