Intel® Xeon® processor inside means the refurbished HP ProLiant server is equipped with enhanced virtualization capabilities (Intel VT-x and VT-d) ensuring maximum efficiency and flexibility when working with hypervisor applications like VMWare ESXI. In addition to that, with Intel SpeedStep technology these processors will dynamically adjust their power usage and reduce their clock speed when the load is light. When the load is heavy Intel Turboboost will bring the clock speed up to give it that extra kick.
DDR3 memory means these servers meet the needs of modern applications that can benefit from increases in memory speed.
In addition to the wide range of capacities that can be installed, these servers support ECC (Error-correcting code) memory. This enables operation in mission-critical environments where consistent system uptime is required and data integrity must be preserved. Here at TechMikeNY, we recommend that all mission-critical systems that require a high uptime be configured with ECC ram.
A dedicated port for the remote management capabilities available through HP’s iLO means you won’t need to share the bandwidth of your server with management operations. This allows you to separate the management network completely, thereby enabling you to adequately manage your server even when the available bandwidth is being saturated by the network load.
With support for redundant hot-plug power supplies, you won’t have to worry about data loss due to a power supply failing. These power supplies can be connected to two separate power lines so as to ensure that a power outage doesn’t interrupt server operations. If one power supply is still connected, the other can be swapped out without shutting the server down, ensuring a power supply failure does not cause an outage.
HP Common Slot Power Supplies have a power efficiency that reaches up to 96%. Designed with maximum efficiency in mind, these power supplies are available for a few different power profiles - 460w, 750w, 1200w and 1500w. In addition to offering multiple power levels, these power supplies can be configured to either split the load in a redundant configuration, or to set one to standby mode. This allows datacenters to maximize efficiency based on their expected load.
In addition to being highly efficient, these power supplies allow for hassle-free, tool-less hot-swap maintenance, and are compatible with a wide range of HP servers.
