HP to develop ARM servers

/ 7 years ago

Computer World is reporting  that  early access customers will be able to start testing and benchmarking the “proof-of-concept server”, which will be part of a family of low-power servers being developed by HP under a new platform dubbed the “Redstone Server Development Platform.”

HP has high hopes for its Gen8 servers. They will use ARM based hardware and software which it thinks can deliver more value per watt of power. They are the result of a $300 million research programme, known as Project Voyager, which HP embarked upon to try to find new ways for data centres to cut costs.The senior VP of HP’s industry standard servers and Software Group, Mark Potter, said that HP wanted to develop servers that would “take care of themselves.” Gen8 will be replacing the Proliant G7 series that was introduced in 2010. This set will be made available in March.
