The HP Performance-optimized Data Center (POD) enables customers in India to rapidly expand compute capacity with a scalable, flexible and secure infrastructure to support new business growth. The HP POD offers Web 2.0, cloud computing, high-performance computing (HPC) and enterprise customers with limited space, budget or critical mobility needs to remain competitive by lowering costs, increasing facility efficiency and accelerating time to market.
“Keeping pace with the demands of IT growth in the data center, as well as rising energy costs is a constant challenge. The extended time and significant costs required to update or expand a data center adds to the complexity,” said Rajesh Dhar, director, Industry Standard Servers, HP India. “With the HP POD, customers now have the flexibility to balance their capital expenditures and operating expenses while quickly and seamlessly meeting their needs for additional capacity.”
Designed specifically to support a wide range of industry-standard technology, the HP POD provides customers with more density than competitive offerings by supporting more than 3,500 compute nodes or 12,000 large form-factor (LFF) hard drives, in a 20- or 40-foot shipping container. It offers flexible configurations optimized for power or density, which enables customers to quickly upgrade or extend the capacity of their physical infrastructures to meet their specific business needs.
