HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen9 Rack Server - System Overview


The HP ProLiant DL380 Gen9 rack server just happens to be one of HP's best-selling servers, and as HP put it the "data center standard". This 2U rack server supports the latest technology and excels at common business solutions and mission critical applications. New technologies include 25GbE, and support for HPE's Persistent Memory. HP’s NVDIMMs are optimized for the ProLiant series servers and offer enhanced performance for databases and analytic workloads.


A maximum of two Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 or Intel E5-2600 v3 family processors can be installed on the DL380. V4 processors provide a 23% gain in performance over Intel v3 processors.


The DL380 Gen9 supports up to 24 HPE DDR4 SmartMemory modules. Outfitted with 128GB of DDR4 LRDIMM modules in all 24 slots adds up to an impressive 3TB of memory. Using HPE SmartMemory, Administrators can expect an increase in performance of 21% over non-HP vetted memory modules. The DL380 is also one of the first ProLiant servers to support HPE Persistent Memory offering performance and data resiliency but significantly less memory at 128GB using 8GB modules in 16 slots. Registered DIMMs are also supported but will only provide up to 768GB using 32GB modules. Memory speeds of 2400MHz are supported but must be paired with a compatible processor.


The HPE ProLiant DL380 has a completely redesigned chassis featuring Universal Media Bay configurations to support 8 to 24 SFF and 4 or 12 LFF drive options. NVMe options are also available along with rear drive support for additional storage and resiliency. There is an embedded SATA HPE Dynamic Smart Array B140i Controller for Boot, data, and media. Administrators can also choose from several Smart SAS HBA Controllers for 12Gb/s access speeds.


The DL380 Gen9 supports up to 6 PCie 3.0 Expansion slots in a dual processor configuration to add additional NICs, controller cards, or a double-wide GPU for workload acceleration.


The HPE DL380 features embedded management handled by HP's integrated LightsOut (iLO) Management is standard and offers administrators service alerting, reporting, and remote management. Also included as a standard feature is Intelligent Provisioning to simplify server deployment and provides flexibility on how to deploy servers. System configuration is addressed with an easy to use wizard to help administrators simplify and accelerate server deployment and is available on all Gen9 platforms and supports all operating systems. HP Insight Online offers a personalized dashboard for health monitoring and support of converged infrastructures.


HPE says this is the world’s best-selling server, and with the performance, agility, and resilience demonstrated by this platform, we’re inclined to believe that statement. The latest Intel Xeon processors, NVDIMM options, and a new Universal Media Bay Configuration with rear drive support give administrators options when configuring this highly scalable server. This server is a jack-of-all-trades and can run anything from the most basic to mission critical applications.
