HP claims the world's first two-in-one server blade, which the company says offers customers with scale-out environments improved data center performance, reduced floor space and lower power usage.

Businesses with cloud computing, Web 2.0 and high-performance computing (HPC) deployments have data centers with hundreds to thousands of servers, multi-petabyte levels of storage capacity and massive performance needs. According to HP, these "scale-out" environments require increased performance, lower energy consumption, improved cooling techniques and a need to maximize existing data center floor space.

To address these needs, HP offers the ProLiant BL2x220c G5 that combines two independent servers in a single blade. It delivers 60 percent better performance per watt than similar configurations on the market and minimizes cooling and power costs.

"HP continues to be the best at helping customers of all sizes manage and transform their technology environments to deliver better business outcomes," said Nelson Lam, country manager, Enterprise Storage & Servers, Technology Solutions Group, HP Hong Kong. "Customers in Web 2.0, HPC and emerging cloud deployments across many business segments are looking for the competitive advantages that scale-out computing can provide. Through innovations in server density, power efficiency, storage management and data center services, we are committed to being the company that powers scale-out infrastructures."

HP offers scale-out customers the domain expertise that results from designing and retrofitting more than 30 million square feet of data center floor space and powering 166 of the top 500 supercomputer installations. The new BL2x220c extends HP's proven portfolio of hardware, software and services for the scale-out market.
