USA - QLogic (www.qlogic.com) announced it is a founding member of the HP ProActive Insight Architecture (PIA) Alliance, selected by HP for its networking solutions developed to the HP standards and interfaces that contribute to the industry-transforming performance and reliability of HP ProLiant Generation 8 (Gen8).
HP ProActive Insight Architecture, now available in the new HP ProLiant Gen8 servers, transforms data center economics with built-in intelligence that improves performance and uptime, while lower operating costs.
As a founding member of the HP PIA Alliance, QLogic will continue to contribute to the elimination of common problems caused by human-to-technology interaction that lead to system downtime and data loss.
Through embedded HP ProLiant Gen8 server technology, HP PIA Alliance members, along with HP, can evaluate data and other critical analytics to continually optimize and improve on business results.
The HP PIA Alliance brings together the collective value of the world's leading technology innovators to complement HP ProLiant Gen8 servers. Alliance members, drawn from leaders in memory, storage, I/O, power and infrastructure solutions, build technology components to HP Proactive Insight architecture standards and interfaces.
These components help to analyze thousands of system parameters and automate processes that consume critical data center resources. Additionally, they provide insight into aspects of application performance and IT infrastructure optimization that had once been nearly impossible to capture and utilize.
"QLogic has been a key partner in developing networking solutions for HP ProLiant servers for more than a decade and has an active role in the HP ProActive Insight Architecture Program," said Chris Humphrey, vice president of corporate marketing, QLogic.
"QLogic adapter technology, combined with the power of the HP Insight Architecture in Gen8 ProLiant Servers overcome storage I/O driven performance bottlenecks, keeping pace with the increased power of server processor and memory to maximize overall application performance."
"The cost of manual operations and system optimization needed to support growing IT requirements is unsustainable," said Jim Ganthier, vice president, Marketing and Operations, Industry Standard Servers and Software
at HP. "The PIA Alliance brings together some of the world's leading technology companies to eliminate manual maintenance tasks and significantly improve data center efficiency."
QLogic will use the HP PIA qualified insignia as visible assurance of meeting HP's stringent quality and performance standards.
