HP has introduced an Extreme Scale-out (ExSO) portfolio designed to help businesses achieve cost and resource savings.
Companies involved in Web 2.0, cloud and high performance computing are being targeted as they operate thousands of servers.
The portfolio includes modular systems architecture and data centre offerings.
HP New Zealand storage and servers business manager Jeff Healey says the offerings are designed for organisations that rely on large, scale-out architectures for competitive advantage.
“Typically these companies have thousands to tens of thousands of nodes supporting a single workload, server or application.”
He says there are some local organisations operating web-based models including software as a service, search engine, social media and e-commerce in industries such as finance, academia and computer-generated animation.
“These customers need a new approach to scale-out an environment that reduce costs, improves facility efficiency, and dramatically accelerates time to market on a massive scale. HP’s ExSO portfolio does all three.”
