HP today announced the industry’s most self-sufficient line of servers – the HP ProLiant Generation 8 (Gen8).

Prepare yourself for new technology including HP Intelligent Provisioning, Active Health, Smart Update, Smart Data Protection, Location, Power and Thermal Discovery services and HP Insight Online.

HP ProLiant Gen8 servers are the result of a $300 million, two-year program called Project Voyager, the company’s initiative to redefine data center economics by automating every aspect of the server life cycle. To date, Project Voyager has resulted in more than 900 patents filed and a new systems architecture called HP ProActive Insight architecture, which will span the entire HP Converged Infrastructure.
