server virtualisation, server consolidation, multi-tiered enterprise application
and corporate infrastructure applications.
HP continues to raise the bar on technology
innovation and engineering excellence.
The new HP ProLiant DL585 G7 server delivers
industry-leading efficiencies to reduce costs in
both capital as well as operating budgets.
To build a Converged Infrastructure, HP offers
servers that are designed to increase efficiency,
simplify operations and deliver automated
intelligence in highly-virtualised environments. Like
other recent HP ProLiant servers, DL585 G7 server
is also a part of the HP Converged Infrastructure

To improve power consumption, many HP ProLiant
servers now offer new power options, including
Common Slot Power Supplies. These power supplies
come in with multiple power ratings that offer the right
size solution to fit your configuration. This provides
improved power delivery and the advantage of
reclaiming lost power that helps maintain high server
availability and reduces cost of downtime. HP Thermal
Logic reduces, reclaims and extends the life of the
data centre with HP Thermal Logic technologies,
which helps to triple data centre capacity.

Breakthrough efficiency and
simplicity with industry-leading
management solutions
HP Insight Control is essential server management
software that unlocks the management capabilities
built into your HP ProLiant servers. HP Insight
Control helps you deploy ProLiant servers quickly,
proactively manage the health of virtual or physical
servers, improve power consumption and take
complete remote control even from outside the
office. HP Insight Control/Insight Dynamics reduces
operational expenses by US$48,300 per 100 users
over 3 years.2 HP Integrated Lights‑Out 3 (iLO 3),
delivers remote console performance 800 per cent
faster than iLO 2 – so it’s as good as being there
in person – and 360 per cent faster than Virtual
Media3, so everyday maintenance and deployment
can be done in a fraction of the time. It sends alerts
from iLO 3 regardless of the state of the host server,
and it helps you access advanced troubleshooting
features. Now you can manage your data centre
remotely – significantly reducing the expense for
onsite personnel and travel time to server site.
iLO 3, is a standard component of the HP ProLiant
DL585 G7 Server, that facilitates server health and
remote server manageability. As it includes an
intelligent microprocessor, secure memory and a
dedicated network interface, iLO 3 is independent of
the host server and its operating system.
Insight Control helps you manage HP servers
running Microsoft ® Windows®, Linux, VMware and
Citrix XenServer environments. In addition, you can
integrate Insight Control with leading third-party
enterprise management consoles, such as Microsoft
System Center and VMware vCenter Server.
