Since the “separation” of HP was made official last November, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise leads -now alone- the division directed to companies, networks and virtual storage services, a business led by Meg Whitman. Within the blade server area, HPE has expanded the HPE ProLiant 10-series computer portfolio for small and medium-sized organizations with the goal of increasing their productivity, reducing costs and developing their businesses more effectively. In addition, we must bear in mind and not forget that this kind of companies demand a technology similar to that used by large corporations in components such as memory, storage, performance and manageability but at a lower cost because their budget is much smaller.
Specifically, HPE ProLiant DL20 Gen9 is a basic compact rack server designed for growing enterprises that need to manage their servers both locally and remotely.
ProLiant DL20 Gen9 Technical Characteristics
This scalable solution has a wide selection of Intel Pentium, Core i3 and Xeon E3-1200 dual and quad core processors, and up to 64 Gb of DDR4 ECC memory to manage any workload, adding the option of managing multiple applications at the same time in competitive price.
It incorporates (on the other hand) solid-state drives for the most demanding requirements, such as a single power supply and a redundant hot-pluggable power supply, multiple storage controllers, and the ‘HPE FlexibleLOM’ network cards, allowing you to find the configuration appropriate to each company.
Among other specifications, HPE ProLiant DL20 Gen9 also includes a 1U 1P rack that combines performance, scalability, management and reliability. It also has a shallow 15.5-inch chassis that provides mobility and simple implementation regardless of the environment where it will be installed.
In terms of management, HPE has added a solution based on HPE iLO 4 to implement, manage and solve server problems, even when ICT resources are limited. Meanwhile, the design is based on the ProLiant family, adding tool-free access to system components and improvements in service capacity.
ProLiant DL20 Gen9 Security
But, undoubtedly, what stands out most of the proposal of the American firm is its ability to protect data and accessibility. This is achieved through improved error handling of DDR4 HPE ECC memory options, power efficiency and workload performance.
On the other hand, HPE Smart Array and RAID technology protects the most critical data. With FBWC, up to 4 Gb can be captured. It conserves data indefinitely if a power cut occurs, a team failure or a human error. Regarding HPE Insight Remote Support, 24 hour remote monitoring is provided 7 days a week and personalized access at any time. The DL20 Gen9 server manages to reduce the power consumption up to 29% compared to the previous generation of servers.
However, not everything remains there. In its search to adapt to all types of companies, HPE also has the HPE ProLiant ML30 Gen9 model, an independent unit designed for small companies and domestic offices. Also belonging to the ProLiant family, this socket tower server provides value performance and expansion and growth capability to this business class.
This solution incorporates ‘HPE iLO Management Engine’ technical specifications, a complete set of integrated and standard features in all HPE ProLiant Gen9 server products, including ‘HPE iLO, HPE Agentless Management’, HPE Intelligent Provisioning, HPE Embedded Remote Support, and HPE Active Health System.
It also incorporates the HPE SmartDrives solution that provides more unit options, specifically, eight reduced form factor (SFF) and four large form factor (LFF) units with which to increase local storage capacity and support up to 8 Terabytes per slot.
Finally, indicate that the HPE ProLiant ML30 Gen9 is compatible with DDR4 memories of 2133 MHz, with up to four DIMM modules, maximum of 64 Gb , in order to increase its performance. In addition, it has four PCI Express slots (PCIe), including four PCIe 3.0 slots, for additional input / output performance.
