The IT industry is moving away from autonomous server, storage system, and network devices toward more integrated solutions. In response, HP, which has the necessary pieces for such devices, boosted the performance of its ProLiant server line, which has been a staple in many small and medium businesses.HP announced three HP ProLiant G7 servers that offer as much as a 23:1 performance boost and include embedded technologies. HP Insight Control software allows clients to monitor and manage either onsite or remote servers. With, HP Integrated Lights-Out Advanced, clients can troubleshoot remote devices. Prices for HP ProLiant G7 servers start at $1,449.

Energy use has become a top concern in IT departments, and the new HP systems are designed to address that area. The devices include HP Thermal Logic power saving features, which support new sensors that automatically adjust components, such as fans, memory, and input/output processing, to reduce energy usage. HP Power Advisor helps companies configure systems based on real-time power needs. HPs Dynamic Power Capping technology enables IT managers to accurately monitor and control the power used by each server and adjust energy usage, if necessary.

HP has emerged as a leading supplier of server, storage and network equipment. The company has been touting the benefits of integrated devices and trying to develop products that would fit into that category. Consequently, the vendor offers businesses in need of new servers a migration path to these integrated systems, a capability that could make its products more attractive.
