HPE Proliant DL380 G10 is a Latest HP G10 family server features Intel’s new Scalable processors with more cores for high expandability, better performance, and scalability than previous generation processors.This server is the successor of world’s best selling server HPE Proliant DL380 G9.Thus we can expect more performance from this server.This is the most versatile 2U server having varieties of chassis configurations and highly flexible storage to run workloads such as cloud, containers, big data applications, and virtualization.
This securely designed server features one or two Intel’s new Scalable Family of processors like the Platinum 8100 series, Gold 6100 series and 5100 series, the Silver 4100 series, and the Bronze 3100 series processors well supported by Intel’s new C621 chipset. These processors offer high core than Intel’s Xeon E5 processors with 4 to 28 cores for providing exceptional processing power and more VMs or containers to support varieties of workloads in one chassis.These latest processors can be able to offer 71% performance gain and 27% increase in cores than the last generation processors and hence run work loads from the most basic to mission critical applications.
2.Power supply and Cooling:
This server supports 2x 800W HPE FlexSlot power supply.A flex slot power supply permits the user to choose the suitable PSUs for different server configurations for reducing power consumptions.This PSUs also has 94% or 96% energy efficiency. One processor configuration has 4 cooling Hot-plug redundant fans and the 12 LFF and 24 SFF chassis configurations have 6 High-performance Hot-plug redundant fans for system cooling.
This memory intensive server supports maximum up to 3.0 TB with 128 GB of 2666 MT/s speed DDR4memory.Each processor in this server supports 6 memory channels and 2 memory (DIMM )slots for each channel.The 2 CPU configuration can support totally 24 DIMM slots.For one processor configurations, 12 DIMM slots are available. HPE Proliant DL380 G10 can support UDIMM, RDIMM, LRDIMM and NVDIMM slots.This server configuration won’t allow mixing of different types of DIMMs with in the same system. HPE Persistent Memory offers exceptional ranges of performance and data resiliency for analytic workloads and databases.Standard memory pre configuration is from 16GB to 64GB for base models.All the models can support maximum up to 3TB using the optional memory configurations.Optional memory configurations are 24 x128GB LRDIMM memory modules support a maximum of 3TB or 12 x64 GB LRDIMM memory modules.
The new HPE Proliant DL380 G10server has a modular chassis with HPE modular drive bay configurations options supporting up to 19 LFF, up to 30 SFF or up to 20 NVMe drive options along with support for 3 double wide GPUs or five single wide GPUs for workload acceleration.Different types of chassis configurations are available for different kinds of workloads.
8 SFF bay with optional Universal Media Bay, and optional SFF or NVMe options,8 LFF with Universal Media Bay,24 SFF bay with 6SFF rear drive bay options with 30 SFF drive bays total and 12 LFF plus optional 4 LFF mid-plane or 3LFF + 2 SFF drives rear with 19 LFF drive bays total.In this configurations, the 3LFF rear will occupy the space for the secondary riser.
The HPE DL380 Gen10 is a flexible and versatile server supports up to 190TB of storage with the support for up to 8 or 12 LFF SAS/SATA/SSD, 8, 10, 16, 18 or 24 SFF SAS/SATA/SSD, 6 SFF rear drive optional or 3 LFF rear drive optional and 2 SFF rear drive optional, 20 SFF NVMe optional and NVMe support via Express Bay will limit maximum drive capacity.
All configurations have the S100i Smart Array Controller for all boot, data and media needs along with embedded software RAIS support for 12 drives. The S100i uses 14 embedded SATA ports, 12 of them are accessible and 2 of them can support the 2 M.2 options on the primary riser.
6.Net work connection and expansion:
The HP ProLiant DL380 G10 has 8 PCIe 3.0 expansion slots for expansion and needs two optional risers for activation.This server also has HPE 1 Gb 331i Ethernet adapter for network connectivity with 4-ports per controller and/or optional FlexibleLOM.
7.Management and security:
The new integrated Lights Out 5.0 (iLO) management chip permits remote access to the system and offers remote management of HPE Proliant DL380 G10 server from a standard browser. The iLO management chip is important to make the simplified setup, power and thermal caps and health monitoring of the server boot and operations.
HPE iLO Advanced Premium Security Edition checks the server firmware for every 24 hours verifying credibility and validity of essential system firmware.Trusted Platform Module prevents unauthorized access to the server. Secure Recovery permits the server firmware to go back to the factory settings after detection of compromised code.
This new generation server is well suited for any server environment.With reduced cost and complexity this HPE ProLiant DL380 G10 server offers excellent performance and expansion for analytic and database workloads.
