HP Unveils the DL980

Earlier today, HP announced the new ProLiant DL 980. I spent some time in late 2008 and early 2009 working on the DL 980 program, so I'm happy to see the box finally unveiled. What is the ProLiant DL980? It is a scale up Intel Xeon server which will partially replace the DL 785 server since AMD is not targeting 8 socket servers with their new processors. It is basically a 4 or 8 socket server supporting 4, 6, or 8 cores per socket, or a maximum of 64 cores. It has 128 DDR3 DIMM slots, supporting up to 2 TB of memory. Along with that, it provides 16 expansion slots, 8 hard drive slots, and iLO 3 management card, and more in a 8U rackmount server.
