The HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 2P 2U Server offers optimal performance and security and thanks to its intelligent configuration system optimizes the performance of workloads by using custom profiles to adjust internal resources.
A few months ago, HPE launched its new generation of servers 10 to which the American company refers as Gen10. These servers constitute a key piece for the modernization of the business infrastructure by accelerating the knowledge of the business through the public cloud, private cloud and traditional IT world. With scalable Intel Xeon processors, these machines provide key security measures not only in terms of hardware but also in terms of protection and recovery of firmware, as well as malware detection.
Within this context, one of the server families that are part of the Gen10 line are the ProLiant DL servers. It is an optimized rack portfolio that provides businesses with a variety of versatile and flexible servers that are adapted to diverse workloads in data center environments of all sizes. One of these equipment is HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 Server, which is the model that concerns us here. Focused on multi-load processing, it is resilient and safe and, in addition, provides outstanding performance and versatility for various scenarios.
HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 Server – Key Features
Performance, expandability and security, on these three pillars, the bases of the HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 server are based, which is backed by a complete guarantee, being ideal for any server environment.
Deepening in its characteristics, the fact of opting for the new Intel Xeon Scalable processors makes it offer up to an increase in performance of 71% and an increase of 27% in cores. In addition, its DDR4 HPE SmartMemory class memory supports a maximum size of 3 Terabytes. In this case, the number of data transfers that can occur in a second is 2,666 MT / S, being up to 11% faster than 2,400 MT / s. The model chosen by HPE for this article is, in another order of things, compatible with SAS units of 12 Gbps and a maximum of up to 20 NVMe units, in addition to a wide range of computing options; the fact of admitting these last ones brings outstanding advantages such as, for example, the improvement of the energetic efficiency so much in suspension way as hibernation. Further,
Let us talk about the ‘HPE Scalable Persistent Memory’. With this, it is committed to an integrated storage solution that runs at terabyte speed using the resilient technology currently used in the data center. Its features also include: a DRAM layer to accelerate applications, a dedicated flash level and backup power that facilitates the movement of data from DRAM to Flash. ‘HPE Scalable Persistent Memory’ allows, in another order of things, superior memory computation with persistence; checkpoint operations up to 27 times faster; and a reduction of the time of restart of the database up to 20 times higher. That HPE Persistent Memory is optimized within HPE ProLiant means offering very high performance levels for databases and analysis workloads. From the most basic applications to those of critical ones, it executes everything and all are implemented with security.
HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 Server – Customizable Options and Security
With an adaptable and modular chassis – with a greater capacity and flexibility of units – it includes the new options of configuration of bays of modular units of HPE with up to 30 SFF, 19 LFF, or 20 NVMe, besides being compatible with up to three options Double-width GPU Meanwhile, its application checkpoint operations are up to 27 times faster and those related to recoveries 20 times faster.
Together with the integrated ‘HPE Dynamic Smart Array S100i ‘SATA controller, the ‘HPE Smart Array Controllers’ have been redesigned to allow you to choose the optimal 12 Gbps controller that best suits your needs. The system can operate in both SAS and HBA mode. It has also incorporated a 4 X 1 GbE adapter. However, HPE also gives the option of an HP FlexibleLOM or a vertical PCle that offers network bandwidth (from 1 GbE to 40 GbE) and structure according to your choice. Thus it helps you to choose system according to your business needs. In addition to traditional OSes, this model supports Azure, Docker, or ClearOS.
As a security measure, the the Operating System of the server only boots after checking firmware codes and with ‘Runtime Firmware Validiation’. The ‘HPE iLO Advanced Premium Security Edition’ enables the server to check and verify the credibility of system firmware every 24 hours. The server firmware, in this regard, is checked every 24 hours by verifying the validity and reliability of the essential firmware of the system. For its part, secure recovery allows the server firmware to return to the last known good state or factory settings after detecting compromised code.
To conclude, as a summary, note that this server HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 is compatible with the enterprise technology to take advantage of the latest processors of the family of scalable, up to 28 cores, Intel Xeon processors, SAS 12 Gb and 3 Terabytes of DDR4 HPE Smart Memory. It also supports up to 5 GPUs – 3 double-wide or 5single-width, which accelerate workloads.
