How HP SmartMemory can Greatly Benefit your Customers

Are your customers’ traditional server infrastructures becoming resource constrained? This is happening more and more often as the demand for applications, data, and digital content grows while businesses demand greater performance and maximum uptime. With increased memory demand and component complexity, the stakes are higher as businesses require continuous availability of IT infrastructure. Memory is a critical system component and can significantly define system reliability, performance, and the server and data center power footprint. We believe choosing the right memory is the key to ensuring upmost reliability, highest performance, and a faster turnaround on IT investment. Today we will look at HP SmartMemory and how it can benefit your customers. 


Extraordinary HP SmartMemory technology gives your customers the edge they need as exciting innovations from HP bring the first DRAM module to provide three rank DDR3 Technology. In addition, HP SmartMemory can provide users with authentication, increased speed, power saving, and health monitoring.




HP SmartMemory is a unique technology introduced for HP ProLiant Gen8 servers. Unlike other memory, HP SmartMemory authenticates whether memory has passed HP’s rigorous qualification and test process, and provides customers with the highest quality, genuine HP SmartMemory. So as soon as they start the server, they will know exactly what memory it has and whether it is qualified and tested. In addition, verification of HP SmartMemory unlocks certain performance and high efficiency features optimized for HP ProLiant Gen8 servers.


Speed Increases and Power Saving

HP SmartMemory not only brings authentication, it also gives customers speed increases and power saving capabilities. The high capacity and impressive speed of HP SmartMemory helps customers unlock the full potential of ProLiant Gen8 servers with up to 25% higher speed capabilities than other servers. With HP SmartMemory, power utilization is up to 20% less when compared to third-part memory or other OEM memory.


Health Monitoring

Along with all of these features, HP SmartMemory also gives customers a way to monitor the health of the memory. This system called Active Health System (AHS) monitors HP SmartMemory and will inform users if there is a problem so corrective measures can be taken.


The whole idea behind HP SmartMemory is to provide customers the best in the industry in terms of quality, performance, and power saving. With HP SmartMemory, HP can help your customers’ servers, applications, and datacenters work better by delivering the capacity they need, at the speed they have always wanted.
