Gartner, Inc. voorspelt dat in 2015 4,9 miljard apparaten zijn verbonden met het internet (Internet of Things). Dat is 30 procent meer dan in 2014. Dit aantal ligt in 2020 boven de 25 miljard.(1) Dit levert een hoeveelheid data op die steeds moeilijker is te verwerken en benutten. Bijgevolg zien organisaties steeds meer het belang in van nieuwe technologieën en architecturen. Van opensource data-analyses en databaseplatforms tot in-memory databases. Ze zijn allemaal gebouwd om waarde te halen uit data en daarmee een bijdrage te leveren aan de business.
HP’s nieuwe compute platforms zijn op maat gemaakt. Bijgevolg voldoen ze aan de specifieke eisen van data-intensieve werkdruk. De platforms zijn gebouwd met het oog op een reeks opkomende technologieën en applicaties, en dit tegen veel lagere kosten dan een traditionele storageoplossing. Voorbeelden hiervan zijn aanzienlijke data storage, block-en-file storage, ongestructureerde en real-time analytics alsook eenvoudige en transactionele databases.
De nieuwe en verbeterde servers en oplossingen bestaan uit: HP Apollo 2000, de HP Apollo 4000 Systems Family, de HP Big Data Reference Architecture, HP Integrity Superdome X en de HP ProLiant DL580, DL560 en BL660c Gen9 servers. Om optimaal gebruik te maken van de capaciteit en om prestaties te bevorderen zijn de servers flexibel, eenvoudig aan- en uit te schalen en bovendien kostenefficiënt. De unieke ontwerpen van de servers voldoen aan de eisen van gebruikers op het gebied van (opslag)ruimte, power en koeling van het datacenter.
HP biedt een scala aan computeplatforms en oplossingen zodat gebruikers van kleine ondernemingen tot grote bedrijven hun data in waarde kunnen omzetten. Met dit brede portfolio kunnen gebruikers de optimale server selecteren die voldoet aan hun applicatie-eisen en groeidoelstellingen zonder over-provisioning.
De oplossingen worden geleverd met HP services en een omvangrijk ecosysteem van partneroplossingen en –services.
De HP Apollo 2000, Big Data Reference Architecture, HP Integrity Superdome X en HP Proliant DL580 Gen 9 zijn verkrijgbaar via HP en wereldwijde partners. De HP Apollo 4000 familie, HP Proliant DL560 Gen9 en HP Proliant BL660c Gen9 worden in juni 2015 verwacht.

The solutions are augmented with HP services, as well as an extensive ecosystem of partner solutions and services.
Scale-out workloads such as object and virtualized storage and Apache Hadoop® require Compute platforms with performance scalability, density optimization, storage simplicity and configuration flexibility. HP addresses these requirements with a scale-out Compute portfolio that consists of the HP Apollo 2000 and 4000 systems as well as HP Moonshot.
The HP Apollo 2000 is the enterprise bridge to scale-out infrastructure. It is designed to deliver hyperscale efficiency and performance in traditional datacenters running general purpose and high performance workloads. The efficient, space-saving system comes in a familiar form factor that has the same rack dimensions, cabling, management and serviceability attributes of traditional 1U rack servers, so it can be introduced in a non-disruptive way. Additionally, up to four independent hot-pluggable servers in a standard 2U chassis enable customers to mix and match servers for workload optimization.
The HP Apollo 4000 Systems family includes three servers purpose-built for data-intensive workloads like Hadoop and big data analytics, in addition to object storage. This family offers a choice of capacity density, performance scalability with one and three nodes, and the flexibility to change the ratio of compute to storage to match workload requirements. It includes the industry’s densest 2U server in the HP Apollo 4200 with 28 large form factor (LFF) drives or 50 small form factor (SFF) drives.2 Additionally, the HP Apollo 4510 offers a 4U chassis with one server node providing rack-scale storage server density with up to 5.44 Petabytes (PB) in 42U rack. The HP Apollo 4530 offers three servers nodes in a chassis, making it ideal for Hadoop-based analytics, which leverages three-copy data replication.
These solutions are supported by the HP Haven Big Data platform featuring HP Vertica as well as HP HyperScale Big Data Ecosystem partners, including Cleversafe, Scality, Cloudera and Hortonworks. The solutions also support key open source projects like Ceph, OpenStack Swift and Apache Hadoop.
The HP Apollo 4000 servers, when combined with HP Moonshot, create the foundation for the HP Big Data Reference Architecture, an innovative new Hadoop infrastructure design that leverages the strength of HP’s portfolio to deliver a differentiated solution. The HP Big Data Reference Architecture deploys a standard Hadoop distribution in an asymmetric fashion, enabling customers to scale storage and compute independently, providing up to twice the performance in 50 percent less space.3 This results in substantial reduction in total cost of ownership, as well as improvements in performance and energy efficiency.
Data-intensive, scale-up workloads such as in-memory and structured databases require high performance, availability and reliability as well as disaster tolerance. HP addresses these requirements with a scale-up Compute portfolio consisting of HP Integrity Superdome X as well as HP ProLiant DL580, 560 and BL660c Gen9 servers.
HP Integrity Superdome X is now certified for Windows and is ideal to support SQL Server 2014 deployments requiring the highest levels of transactional throughput and fast response times. With a large memory footprint and high-availability features, including hard partitioning that is 20 times more reliable than soft partitions,4 HP Integrity Superdome X is also an excellent fit for in-memory computing applications that require the greatest levels of flexibility for the most stringent service level agreements. Additionally, HP Integrity Superdome X delivers 40 percent lower total cost of ownership than Oracle Exadata X5-2.5
The HP ProLiant DL580 Gen9 server delivers the highest performance and scalability in a four socket x86 system, with superior reliability and efficiency for resource and data-intensive workloads, such as in-memory platforms and structured databases like Microsoft SQL Server 2014. It has resiliency features and a compelling total cost of ownership based on the breakthrough cost efficiencies of the scale-up model with consolidation and virtualization. The HP ProLiant DL580 Gen9 server is integrated in the HP ConvergedSystem 500 to provide increased processing power, memory size and I/O capability to process and manage large volumes of information quickly.
The HP ProLiant DL560 Gen9 server is a high-density four-socket server for multi-workload compute, where data center space and price/performance are paramount. Its balanced performance, increased scalability and expansion, all in a 2U chassis, make it the ideal choice for virtualization, server consolidation, business processing and general 4P data-intensive applications.
The HP ProLiant BL660c Gen9 is a four-socket Compute server blade that transforms legacy converged infrastructures to increase the speed of business and support growth while reducing data center footprint. Scalable performance, flexible configurations, boosted compute operations and manageability through HP OneView enable it to serve demanding workload environments such as databases, virtualization, consolidation, modeling/simulation and public cloud to deliver results faster for agile businesses.
