HPE’s flagship 2U rack server gets a massive Gen10 makeover and showcases Intel’s Xeon Scalable CPUs
HPE’s ProLiant DL380 has consistently been at the top of the best seller list – and with good reason, as this is its most capable rack server. There’s little it can’t turn its hand to and we exclusively bring you the first hands-on review of HPE’s new Gen10 flagship.
There’s plenty to get excited about as along with support for Intel’s Xeon Scalable CPU family, the DL380 Gen10 receives a complete refresh in the storage department with a new modular design. HPE’s Smart Array RAID controllers have also been uprated to offer more storage and interface choices.
The server supports 3TB of DDR4 SmartMemory and can handle up to 192GB of HPE’s Persistent Memory NVDIMMs. These target high-demand apps such as analytics or databases and provide 8GB of high-performance DRAM, backed up by 8GB of flash mounted on a standard form factor DIMM module.
