Presenting the New DL320e HP Gen8 Server

Hello everyone,


We all know that customers are dealing with a variety of escalating challenges, and they're looking to HP to help them come up with solutions.


With the new DL320e server, you can offer your clients a perfect 1P solution that can operate as single application server or as an infrastructure server providing flexibility to run stand-alone or fit into the Datacenter.


It's the perfect server for expandable solutions at a low cost of ownership.


So what new with the DL320e Gen8 server?



  • There's Intel's powerful E3-1200v2 series processors which offer you a choice of 4 cores with speeds up to 3.7 GHz.
  • We have DDR3 memory at speeds up to 1600MHz, and double the internal memory capacity - now up to 32 GB.
  • In the storage area, we've increased capacity with a choice of drive cage offerings between 4LFF and 8 SFF.
  • With HP's new SmartDrive technologies we increase the storage capacity and protection.

On top of this, clients will see the added benefits from the B120i Smart Array, the next generation of embedded controllers.


In the area of serviceability, we have improved the overall design of the DL320e with a newly redesigned baffle, fan cage, cabling solution, and riser assembly.


Last, but most important, we have our new HP iLO Management Engine: a complete set of embedded management features such as Intelligent Provisioning, HP Power and Cooling and Agentless Management.


With Gen8's new Active Health System, we offer an always-on diagnostics system recording constant feeds of telemetry data, configuration changes, and every alert in order to facilitate faster root-cause analysis and problem resolution.


Finally, with iLO Management Engine we also offer faster access to HP Insight Remote Support, HP's 24x7 "phone home" remote support software.


I hope you and your customers can benefit from the improvements we have brought to the DL320e, part of the world's #1 selling server line.
