HP + Emulex + Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2: Best-In-Class Solutions
Green With Envy - Efficiency with Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2
HP Blades and Emulex mezzanine cards (HBAs) use less energy than products used in traditional rack servers. A lot less. In fact, the most efficient HP blade configuration now saves up to 47.9 percent less power than traditional 1U servers. That means a user can run 80 blades for the same power as 42 standard 1U servers without sacrificing performance or reliability. It's also enough energy saved to run 3 US households for a year! See the latest test results that help you extend the life of your datacenter.
HP blades using Thermal Logic technology also use less energy than the other blade solutions according to an analysis of power and cooling advantages of HP versus other systems. See HP web page for details.
