Guest blog by Stefan Buchberger: HP Industry-standard Servers & Software
The new dual-processor HP ProLiant DL380p Gen8, a 2U rack-optimized server with enhanced innovations in performance, feature flexibility, and management capabilities passed the eWEEK Labs rigorous test and the in-depth lab review was recently published.
Today, I would like to share some of the awe-inspiring results:
eWEEK Labs tests showed that the DL380p “successfully marries extensive performance and capacity increases with simplified field serviceability” and “this server should be at the top of any evaluation for new data center infrastructure”.
Engineered to protect your server investment and extend the life of the data center with reliability, accessibility, and serviceability: eWEEK labs refers to the DL380p Gen8 as a “workhorse”.
“The ability to swap network adapters means that IT managers aren’t stuck with a built-in network adapter…giving IT managers networking choices without having to burn a PCIe slot.”
HP ProLiant Gen8 redefines the server experience and eliminates tedious, time-consuming tasks with intuitive, configurablemanagement system:
“Physical hardware should be judged, in part, by the design details directly related to field configurability and service. The HP DL380p Gen8 gained high marks in this area…
…in Gen8 servers and in my test HP DL380p system, the inclusion of all necessary management and diagnostics tools was a big improvement over previous versions…
…the [Active Health System] AHS will clearly make system troubleshooting significantly easier”
