HP has continued the overhaul of its ProLiant server line with the introduction of six new models.
The company said that the servers, which span from blade and rack-mount to tower models, would feature Intel's latest Xeon E5 processors.
John Gromala, director of product marketing for HP industry standard servers and software, told V3 that the update will go far beyond new CPUs. He said that the new models were part of the company's Project Voyager update.
Announced in February, Project Voyager will look to reduce time spent configuring and maintaining servers. The update will included bundled documentation and embedded setup tools.
"People can spend less time doing tedious time-consuming tasks and more time doing high-level innovation with their infrastructure," Gromala said.
"The fact that customers have this higher level of configurability means we can better meet the needs of the applications that they have."
The company is also looking to expand bandwidth to and from the new processors. The ProLiant servers will include the addition of new Broadcom 1Gb and 10Gb ethernet cards as well as a 33 per cent larger memory capacity.
Gromala said that the six servers have been selected to appeal to service providers and customers ranging from small and medium-sized businesses running individual servers to enterprise customers with large datacentre deployments.
"This is definitely a large scale update," he explained.
"We are updating a broad set of our product line, our top selling products which serve all of the major segments in the server industry."
The company said that the ProLiant Gen8 servers will be available through HP and its sales partners by the end of March.
