HP Unveils 'Self-Sufficient' ProLiant Gen8 Servers

Hewlett-Packard, the US based multinational technology heavyweight unveiled on Monday what it proudly calls the industry's "most self-sufficient line of servers".

Dubbed ‘HP ProLiant Gen8', this new offering has been termed by the company as the desired outcome of its Project Voyager - a $300 million worth, 2 year long program. Project Voyager was primarily targeted at enhancing data centre economics by introducing an automated methodology in virtually all aspects of the server life cycle.

The company went on to say that all the hard work put up by the Project Voyager team has enabled it to file as much as 900 patents, including those covering some potentially ground breaking technologies. In addition, the program also helped HP to come up with a brand new system architecture named HP ProActive Insight. It further claims that this new architecture will bridge the company's entire HP Converged Infrastructure.

"The skyrocketing cost of operations in the data center is unsustainable, and enterprises are looking to HP to help solve this problem," HP's senior vice president and general manager of Industry standard Servers and Software, Mark Potter said in a statement.
