HP ProLiant DL370 G6/ML370 G6 - Server
Enhance Data Center Efficiency and Get Better Return for Your Budget with the HP ProLiant DL370 G6 (4U Optimized Rack) and the HP ProLiant ML370 G6 (4U Expandable Tower) Servers.
Data centers have grown in size and complexity, and are characterized more by diversity than standardization. This means that your IT administrators have more on their hands than ever before. As they struggle to enhance data center efficiency, they also need to rein in rising power costs.
The HP ProLiant DL370 G6 and the HP ProLiant ML370 G6 Servers help strike that balance. HP Insight Control suite with the new Dynamic Power Capping technology can triple1 the capacity of the data center and tailor the power supply to the desired configuration. Talking about efficiency, both the DL370 G6 and the ML370 G6 offer the broadest range of Intel’s latest processors—Intel® Xeon® 5600 and 5500 series processors. Additionally, the HP ProLiant Onboard Administrator powered by the Integrated Lights-Out 2, offers features like simplified server setup, health monitoring, power optimization, thermal control, and remote management.
Key Features and Benefits
The DL370 (4U rack-optimized chassis) and the ML370 (expandable tower chassis) servers deliver industry-leading management tools, performance, expandability, flexibility, and the latest energy-efficient technologies. These servers have been optimized for virtualization and consolidation environments, and are well-suited for deployment in growing businesses, remote office sites, or data centers and have also been designed to bring you the utmost confidence to run your business.
The DL370 G6 and the ML370 G6 promise to deliver enterprise-class performance. Both of these servers come equipped with Intel Xeon 5600 and 5500 series processors. The DDR3 memory technology offers twice2 the bandwidth, double the capacity, and 25% less power, and since both of these servers support 18 DIMM slots, customers can achieve up to 192 GB of DDR3 registered memory. Both the DL370 G6 and the ML370 G6 include the new generation of HP Smart Array Modular Controllers delivering 200% greater performance3 and enhanced backward compatibility.
Improved Power Management
Struggling to get your soaring power bills under control? Not only do the right-sized ProLiant power supplies help reclaim lost data center power, but the Intelligent Power and Cooling Savers can tell when power is being wasted. Correspondingly, you get to improve your IT architecture’s capacity up to 3x with Dynamic Power Capping, which is available as part of the Insight Control suite. In addition, the Intel 45 nanometer technology and dynamic resource scaling further enable more efficient power management.
Supporting the high-efficiency power supplies, both the DL370 G6 and the ML370 G6 servers put a check on your undesirable power consumption. Improved power efficiency enabled by HP ProLiant Common Slot Power Supplies (460 W and 750 W)4 and HP ProLiant Common Slot Power Supplies (1200 W)5 has earned the servers various energy saving certifications.
Deploy Easily, Manage Seamlessly
The ProLiant portfolio of deployment tools, such as SmartStart, Preboot Execution Environment (PXE), Array Configuration Utility (ACU), and ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU), enables a hassle-free setup.
