The HP ProLiant DL560 Gen8 is a brand new server in the ProLiant portfolio that redefines density-optimized 4-socket rack server technology without compromising on performance, scalability, and expandability. Supporting the new high-density and cost effective Intel Xeon E5-4600 processors, the DL560 Gen8 is ideal for virtualization, database, business processing, and general 4P data-intensive applications where optimization of data center space and price/performance is paramount. The server is packed with the latest HP innovative and intuitive hardware and software features. Hardware enhancements include the HP SmartDrive carriers, HP Smart Socket guide, HP SmartMemory, FlexibleLOM technology, "3D Sea of Sensors", the new embedded Smart Array P420i RAID controller, and more. Software enhancements include HP Integrated Lifecycle Automation, Dynamic Workload Acceleration, Automated Energy Optimization, Intelligent Provisioning, agentless hardware monitoring, and Active Health System.
Ideal 4S/2U Dense Form Factor The DL560 Gen8 provides 4S computing in a dense 2U form factor: It has support for up to four cost-effective Intel Xeon E5-4600 processors each up to 8 cores and 130 watts without system configuration restrictions. Up to six PCIe 3.0 expansion slots (3 x16) support the highest performing option cards now and into the future.
Improved Memory, Storage, and I/O Performance The DL560 Gen8 provides 48 DDR-3 DIMM sockets for up to 1.5TB of Gen8 HP SmartMemory which has unmatched performance, quality, manageability, and efficiency advantages above industry standards including up to 20% less power using low voltage RDIMMS with no impact to performance. Plus, the PCIe 3.0 I/O technology provides improved latency and up to 400% the bandwidth per I/O expansion slot compared to G7 servers while the HP FlexibleLOM provides the ability to customize server networking today and the ability to meet future needs without overhauling server hardware and a choice of networking bandwidth, technology, HP OEM vendor partner, and number of ports.
Redefining the Customer Experience User-inspired design features such as HP SmartDrive carriers and the HP Smart Socket guide anticipate your needs and virtually eliminates common issues that result in downtime. Integrated Lifecycle Automation, an industry first, provides embedded provisioning tools, Active Health monitoring, and system maintenance capabilities standard on all ProLiant servers and built using the industry-leading HP iLO Management Engine. In addition, Dynamic Workload Acceleration delivers smarter data protection for ever-increasing hard drive capacities. Plus, Automated Energy Optimization improves the server's ability to analyze and respond to "3D sea of sensors" data within the server as well as self-identify location and inventory through Insight Control for maximum workload optimization across the entire data center.
Intuitive, Configurable Management System HP Intelligent Provisioning takes strengths from products like HP SmartStart, HP Smart Update Manager and HP Service Pack for ProLiant, enhances them with the latest ease of use features and places them where you can use them instantly- on the system board. Plus, HP Active Health System provides 24x7 continuous health monitoring, 100% configuration change logging and faster problem analysis with HP Service and Support. You can start problem analysis 5x faster using unified diagnostic tools with secure data transfer to HP Service and Support.
