HPE expands AMD portfolio with new single-processor AMD EPYC based server, providing enterprise-class performance without dual-processor server cost, saving on software licensing
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced an expansion to its ProLiant Gen10 portfolio with the new single-processor HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 server, based on the AMD EPYC processors, providing dual-processor performance at single-processor economics. The HPE ProLiant DL325 delivers more performance than a leading competitor with two processors at a lower price, resulting in 25 percent better price performance.
Economic Break-through for Virtualized and Software Defined Storage Applications
With today’s application and data demands, and single-processor servers having traditionally shipped with low-performance processors, limited memory and I/O, organizations have been forced to purchase a dual-processor server to achieve necessary levels of performance.
With the introduction of the HPE ProLiant DL325, featuring the AMD EPYC architecture, customers gain the following benefits:
- Achieve enterprise class process, memory and I/O performance, and security without paying for a dual-processor server.
- Save thousands of dollars on software licensing when per processor software licensing costs are taken into account.
- Optimize dense server virtualization and software-defined storage workloads with up to 32 processor cores, 2 terabytes of memory and up to 40 terabytes of NVMe storage in a 1U chassis.
The HPE ProLiant DL325 delivers up to a 27 percent lower cost per virtual machine (VM) than the leading dual-processor competitor for virtualization, and sets the bar for single-processor virtualization performance.² In addition, with HPE OneView, customers can dramatically speed up many system management tasks, including the deployment of new virtual machines.
“Customers are trying to accelerate delivery of new products and services and need innovative technology to achieve their business goals,” said Vikram K, Senior Director, Hybrid IT, HPE India. “We have teamed with AMD to deliver the HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 server to take full advantage of the AMD EPYC architecture and deliver leadership single-processor virtualization performance while dramatically lowering total cost of ownership (TCO).”
