HPE refreshes ProLiant servers with Persistent Memory

04 Apr 16

HPE has refreshed its ProLiant Gen9 server range adding Intel’s Broadwell microarchitecture and built-in support for Persistent Memory.

Peter Schrady, HPE senior vice president and general manager, ProLiant Servers and Enterprise and SMB segments, says the company is commited to bringing new infrastructure innovations to market that enable organisations to derive more value from their data.

“We are delivering on that commitment by delivering a complete Persistent Memory hardware and software ecosystem into our server portfolio, as well as delivering enhancements that will allow customers to increase agility, protect critical information and deliver new applications and services more quickly than ever before,” Schrady says.

Persistent memory combine the performance of high-speed memory and the persistence of storage to deliver improved levels of application performance.

HPE’s 8GB NVDIMM technology, available in May for initial support on HPE’s DL360 and DL380 Gen9 servers with Intel E5-2600 v4 processors, is designed to accelerate database and analytical workloads, and includes back-up power from the HPE Smart Storage Battery, which supports up to 16 NVDIMMs for moving data from DRAM to Flash when power is lost.

HPE says it is working with industry operating system and application providers to enable the software ecosystem for HPE Persistent Memory offerings and to simplify implementation for HPE ProLiant server customers.

Lisa Spelman, Intel Data Center Group vice president of marketing, says the ProLiant Gen9 portfolio ‘will accelerate enterprise’s transition to the cloud’.

“The new Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 product family offers customers the performance, orchestration and security features they need to adopt cloud computing with confidence,” Spelman says.

The new Intel processor offers up to 25% performance gains for HPE ProLiant Gen9 servers, HPE says.

The processors also include virtualisation enhancements, added security and improved orchestration capabilities to help better manage shared platform resources.
