HP ProLiant DL380e Gen8 Server

The HP ProLiant DL380e Gen8 Server delivers essential features and dense storage in a 2U, 2 socket server. Features like management, networking and serviceability along with different drive cage choices help applications meet their needs, including those with unique storage requirements. Also features enterprise-class uptime and HP Insight Control manageability, and 2 socket Intel Xeon performance.

HP ProLiant DL380e Gen8 Server supports HP iLO Management Engine, a complete set of embedded management features supporting the complete lifecycle of the server, from initial deployment, through on-going management, to service alerting and remote support.

High Availability and Efficiency for the Dense Storage Environment:

The HP ProLiant DL380e Gen8 Server provides a range of features that ensure data security and high availability. It includes ECC memory protection, TPM, secured bezel, as well as redundant power supply and fan options.

Rack Servers:

1. Can be placed inside standard 19″ racks (one over another, along with network switches, etc.) – space utilization is better than tower servers.
2. Offers decent compute power (multiple options) in a space-saving design (not as much as blade servers, though).
3. Expansion slots to add NICs, HBAs and other interconnecting components & options.
4. May come with built-in storage capacity, can also connect to high-speed external storage (NAS/SAN).
5. Each server is an independent and (mostly) a complete unit.
6. Can coexist with servers made by other manufacturers, in the same rack.
7. Optimum for usage in server rooms, small data centres and Branch office.
