HP launches new technologies

20 November 2008

HP has launched new networking, storage and server technologies that reduce costs, increase bandwidth flexibility and improve overall performance of virtual server environments. HP's new Virtual Connect Flex-10 Ethernet module is the industry's first interconnect technology that can allocate the bandwidth of a 10Gb Ethernet network port across four network interface card (NIC) connections. This increase in bandwidth flexibility eliminates the need for additional network hardware equipment. As a result, customers deploying virtual machines and utilizing Virtual Connect Flex-10 can realize savings of up to 55% in network equipment costs. HP's ProLiant BL495c virtualization blade includes built-in Virtual Connect Flex-10 functionality that enables it to support up to 24 NIC connections. With increased network bandwidth and memory capacity, the BL495c can accommodate more virtual servers than other competitive blade server offerings on the market, according to a press statement.
