HP has announced the availability of its HP DL380p Gen8 server which is rich in performance and system monitoring tools. This 2U rack mount workhorse server doubles the memory capacity and simplifies field serviceability. The server’s performance enhancements have been made possible with Intel’s Xeon E5-2600 processors and C6xx chip set family. The Gen8 server has been available since April and recent evaluations of the product suggest that it is markedly more powerful than previous versions and has more memory too. With its 24 dual in line memory module slots, the HP DL380p Gen8 has double the memory of the previous generation of DL380.
The product also has FlexLOM modules which help in better handling of the LAN on motherboard. It has also scored highly for its clear and tool-less hardware details. Plenty of other features make the product a winner. This feature gains a lot of importance since more and more managers are seeking to reduce hardware details with increase in workload virtualization. IT managers can also swap network adapters.
