HP ProLiant DL380p Gen8 Servers

HP ProLiant DL380p Gen8 Servers

This server sets the no-compromise data center standard for 2U two-socket rack servers a balance of efficiency, performance, and management.

HP ProLiant DL servers deliver decades of engineering knowledge and integration experience to speed the implementation of new business computing technology. The ProLiant DL family is ideal for performance-driven compute processes and storage in a dense rack package. ProLiant Gen8 DL servers offer an increased processor core count, memory, and internal storage capacities, as well as the next generation of embedded Smart Array technology.

The HP ProLiant DL380p Gen8 Server offers increased performance via higher core processors, an increased memory footprint, a variety of internal storage capacities, FlexibleLOM network solutions, and powerful embedded HP Smart Array technology (P420i).

Besides improving expandability and flexibility, HP designers also enhanced serviceability with improved PCIe riser solutions, HP Smart technology, and easier-to-service cabling—creating the perfect solution for the dynamic compute requirements of growing small businesses, as well as demanding data centers.

HP ProLiant Gen8 server highlights over previous-generation servers include:

  • New and enhanced manageability with the HP iLO Management Engine—now standard on all HP ProLiant Gen8 servers
  • Up to two times more cache capacity with 2 GB FBWC options for indefinite data retention
  • FlexibleLOM for choice of embedded or optional network technologies
  • Easier accessibility with enhanced cable routing
  • Improved serviceability with the new clear and numbered air baffle designs

Dynamic Workload Acceleration

This increases storage capacity quickly and easily to help you stay ahead of data growth. It accelerates the performance of application workloads with increased memory bandwidth and faster data throughput. These innovations protect data from hardware failures, application crashes, and human errors while improving uptime with advanced memory error detection and providing capacity and performance optimized in a cost-effective manner.

  • Solid State Optimized: Engineered for solid-state storage to deliver a dynamic balance of performance and capacity. To enhance solid-state media performance, HP ProLiant Gen8 servers include an embedded next-generation HP Smart Array controller with 9X better solid-state drive (SSD) performance over previous-generation controllers.
  • HP SmartCache Technology: Caches hot data onto lower-latency SSDs to dynamically accelerate application workload with up to four times better workload performance.

HP iLO Management

HP Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) Management is a complete set of embedded management features supporting the complete server lifecycle, from initial setup and deployment, through ongoing management, to service alerting and remote support. HP iLO Management comes standard on all HP ProLiant Gen8 servers.

The HP iLO Management processor is the core foundation of HP iLO Management. HP iLO Management processors for HP ProLiant servers simplify server setup, monitoring the health of power and thermal controls, and promote remote administration for HP ProLiant BL, DL, ML, and SL family servers. HP iLO is the intelligence that drives and manages all server components and how they interact. With the new HP iLO, you can now have the same homogeneous server management experience across all HP ProLiant Gen8 servers.

Data center efficiency—intelligent infrastructure

With embedded intelligence across three dimensions—sense of location, power utilization, and thermal demand—HP ProLiant Gen8 servers provide a unique level of visibility and control over the energy efficiency of your data center.

As data centers grow, power and cooling costs take an ever-larger piece of the IT budget. HP takes a proactive approach with a server infrastructure that is so smart it helps improve the use of space, and power and cooling while eliminating tedious and error-prone management processes for asset tracking, checking, and documenting power and rack configurations.
