HP has officially unveiled a portfolio of servers developed in partnership with Foxconn, optimised for the compute requirements of service providers and priced for scale-out deployments.
Set to be available from the end of March, the HP Cloudline servers feature a minimalist design that is cost-focused and customisable for workloads such as cloud computing, web servers, content delivery, hosting and big data. The new systems were launched at the Open Compute Summit in Palo Alto.
The move to partner with Foxconn, first announced last year, enables HP to bring to market a portfolio of servers under its brand but with the cost benefits of an original design manufacturer sourcing model.
All the new systems are based on Intel's latest Xeon E5 v3 processor platform and will be available only in volume. The exact quantity will depend on the customer.
HP is also targeting service providers with a range of support services and flexible finance packages to enable them to acquire the infrastructure they need to scale out operations.
