Hewlett-Packard unveiled two new HP ProLiant Generation 8 servers it says can facilitate organizations’ move to the cloud while delivering increased compute power in less space.

The HP ProLiant BL660c and DL560 Generation 8 (Gen8) servers significantly reduce the time spent on maintenance tasks through high levels of automation and continuous monitoring of system health, the company says, saving IT staff more than 30 days of administration time a year.

Many companies have virtualized basic infrastructure and smaller workloads, but still face a challenge with more complex and higher-end workloads, HP says. They often face performance bottlenecks, data-center footprint and power limitations, and inadequate memory capacity from traditional two-socket servers.

The new servers satisfy the need for high-end compute power that enables organizations to extend end-to-end virtualization and provide a foundation for creating private and hybrid clouds, HP says.

The HP ProLiant DL560 Gen8 and HP ProLiant BL660c Gen8 are available worldwide for starting prices of $5,912 and $7,970, respectively.
