Do You Want More Compute For Your Hyper-V Servers? Address Your Demands with New HPE ProLiant Gen9 Servers #HP #Proliant #HyperV

3 Min. Read

HPE just announced a new portfolio of HP ProLiant Generation 9 (Gen9) Servers that will help customers and Hyper-V folks to reduce cost and complexity, accelerate IT service delivery and enable business growth. The new server portfolio advances HPE’s vision for compute the future of data center technology.

The new HP ProLiant Gen9 portfolio is a major delivery milestone in HP’s compute strategy, which addresses IT demands with a vast pool of processing resources that can be located anywhere, scaled to any workload, and available at all times. The servers are optimized for convergence, cloud, and software-defined environments.

Here are the details of what HP announced with the new Gen9 Portfolio:

All these servers leverage the latest Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3 processors to offer up to 70 percent performance gains and a 36% increase in energy efficiency.

The typical specs:
–          Intel (Haswell) v3 processors supporting up to 18 cores :)
–          DDR4 memory with speeds up to 2.133 GHz
–          12Gb storage connectivity
–          20Gb Ethernet

The Smart Array controller is by default not onboard anymore. This means that the RAID controller is now like a FlexLOM Ethernet adapter an add-on card on the motherboard of the server. HP provides besides Smart Array controllers a FlexHBA’s which you need if you want to leverage Microsoft Storage Spaces.
