HP Says Enterprises Embrace Its Performance Optimised Data Centre (POD)

Hewlett-Packard has announced that enterprises throughout the world have embraced its HP Performance Optimized Data Center (POD) to ensure that their data centre resources are expanded at a faster pace, without jeopardising efficiency.

The HP POD, primarily based on the HP Converged Infrastructure, empowers clients to exhibit highly impressive expansion within a short period of time by addressing the key data centre challenges regarding cost, power and space, the company claims.

The company also claims that The City, as well as the County of El Paso and Texas made the best out of this sophisticated offering from HP, and managed to save $6 million.

It is important to note here that El Paso opted to go with an HP POD, hosting HP blade servers as well as storage to cater to the requirements of law enforcement agencies, administration and the judicial system.

"The vision of both The City and County of El Paso is to promote technology and efficiency for the combined entities' customer base," said David Garcia, director, Information Technology and Project Oversight, El Paso County in a statement, as reportedby Marketwatch.
