HP Unveils Idiot-Proof, Virtually Self-Managing Servers Called Gen8
Today HP announced a new line of ProLiant servers dubbed ProLiant Generation 8, or Gen8 for short. The new line bakes in automation and monitoring tools and comes equipped with a sensor array for optimizing energy use. The idea is to create a new line of idiot-proof servers that “virtually manage themselves.” HP is calling this “Integrated Lifecycle Automation.”
The new line is the fruit of a two year, $300 million R&D effort codenamed Project Voyager, which according to HP has yielded more than 900 patent filings thus far. Project Voyager is the third part of a series of R&D projects from HP, beginning with its ARM-based server initiative Project Moonshot and continued with its Project Odyssey.
