A history of ProLiant servers from HP
HP systems provide features differentiating them from the competition.
The number and variety of options and features available for HP industry
standard servers has grown rapidly and continues to grow today.
In 1987, HP and Compaq led the way in developing extended industry
standard architecture (EISA). Both successfully opposed the proprietary
Micro Channel Architecture from IBM and laid the foundation for today's
Standard Industry Architecture Server (SIAS) market. Again in 1993,
both companies led the industry by launching Netserver and the ProLiant
line of servers. These servers established new levels of fault tolerance
and manageability using an industry standard platform. The two companies
also worked together in 1998 on PCI-X, high performance extensions
to the PCI bus standard. In keeping with tradition, HP provides customers
with the total enterprise customer experience by continually producing
product innovation and quality, strategic relationships with partners,
total cost of ownership (TCO), and ease of integration and support.
Total cost of ownership
After you invest in any distributed computing solution, hidden costs
quickly pile up - and continue mounting throughout its lifecycle -
as IT professionals configure, maintain, repair, support, upgrade,
and manage the environment. For large enterprises, millions of dollars
are at stake because the total ownership cost soars high above the
acquisition cost. HP has a compelling interest in raising TCO awareness
and promoting TCO measurement. The more rigorously you track the lifecycle
cost of owning a client/server environment, the more you discover
it costs less to own HP product-based solutions than other brands.
That adds up to huge savings and higher productivity for both IT staff
and end-users alike. Within this document learn how our industry standard
servers are built with quality, reliability, and manageability in
mind - all of which lower your total ownership cost.
HP continues to set the standard for platform manageability, providing
built-in capabilities and industry-leading management tools that enable
IT managers to be in control of their assets, ensure system availability
and reduce their administrative costs. HP provides a comprehensive
set of products and services that simplify the challenges of managing
technology and help them respond quickly to ever-changing demands
on their IT infrastructures. HP ProLiant management tools are delivered
as ProLiant Essentials software.
With a modular approach to increasing adaptability, the ProLiant portfolio
allows customers to incorporate new capabilities incrementally for
maximum return on each IT investment while building a foundation for
an increasingly automated, utility-like infrastructure. With ProLiant
as the server backbone, customers can operate efficiently and effectively
in a world that demands business agility to adapt to change and growth.
