HP unveils blade optimisation services

HP announced a set of services that would offer blade server customers insight and expertise on power and cooling options, security measures and process improvements for their bladed environments.

HP Proactive Bladesystem service covers HP Bladesystem blade servers, HP Storageworks blades, blade enclosures, bladed networking and storage-area network devices, and HP management software. The service, which involves HP technology experts assessing customer environments and updating assessments monthly, is ideal for customers with 50 or more blades. HP professional services staff would advise customers on how the blades are racked, networked and secured.

The set of services includes a basic assessment as well as specific analysis around power and cooling, security, installation, virtualisation and ongoing education. HP staff could provide guidance on how to best deploy the blades in relation to datacentre priorities, such as power and cooling, as well as advice in what scenarios virtualisation technology would make sense with the blades, for instance.

With competition primarily from IBM, HP says this set of services can help midsize and enterprise companies get more from their blade environments and optimise performance through implementation and education.

HP Proactive Bladesystem is priced at US$33,000 for one year of service and this can be renewed.
