HP has launched the HP ProLiant Generation 8 (Gen8) servers. The HP ProLiant Gen8 servers are the result of a $300 million, two-year program called Project Voyager, says the company, and part of HP’s initiative to automate every aspect of the server life cycle.
To date, Project Voyager has resulted in more than 900 patents filed and a new systems architecture called HP ProActive Insight architecture, which will span the entire HP Converged Infrastructure.
HP ProLiant Gen8 servers are available to early-adopter clients. General availability of HP ProLiant Gen8 servers through HP and worldwide channel partners begins in March and continues throughout 2012. This includes HP ProLiant ML tower servers for remote and branch offices and versatile HP ProLiant DL rack-mount servers, along with HP ProLiant BL blade servers for a cloud-ready Converged Infrastructure and HP ProLiant SL scalable system servers built for Web, cloud and massively scaled environments.
