Next best thing to hands-on demo: HP ProLiant BL660c Gen8 Server Blade.

Darren Anthony, a WW Product Marketing Manager for HP server blades, takes us through the features and benefits of the recently announced HP ProLiant BL660c Gen8 4-socket server blade. He explains how it provides businesses with a density-optimized blade that isn’t too big and isn’t too small, is very power efficient, and all designed into a package that is 50% smaller than the previous HP ProLiant 4-socket server blade powered by Intel. It has been designed to meet the needs of the multi-processor market for those applications that require the processing power of 4 processors without breaking the bank.

The BL660c Gen8 Server Blade provides the ideal solution for businesses that fits their requirements for performance, expandability, and processor density. Darren explains that businesses with performance needs in the application areas below will all benefit from the new BL660c Gen8 optimized features and capabilities.


  • Virtualization
  • Database applications
  • Decision support
  • Business processing
  • High performance computing
  • 4P Data-Intensive applications
