HP has announced three new ProLiant G7 servers for its converged infrastructure portfolio, designed to provide better performance and enhanced power savings over previous models.
The three versions are the HP Proliant DL165 G7 and HP Proliant DL385 G7 rack-optimised servers, and HP ProLiant SL165z G7 scale-out 'skinless' server.
All will sport AMD's Opteron 6100 Series processors. HP believes the operational efficiencies in the servers mean they will pay for themselves in as little as two months.
These results are based on HP's internal benching on a ProLiant DL380 G4 to DL385 G7 with an AMD Opteron 6100 Series processor.
HP's Sea of Sensor technology automatically tracks thermal activity through 32 sensors that adjust components to reduce energy use, the firm said.
HP Dynamic Power Capping technology improves datacentre utilisation, and HP Power Advisor configures systems based on real-time power guidance for specific workloads.
All three HP Proliant G7s will get a worldwide launch next month with the minimum configurations selling for $1,449 (£960) in the US. HP has not set a UK price yet.
