HP PROLIANT DL160 G9 SERVER

The HP ProLiant DL160 Gen9 Server delivers the right balance of performance, storage, reliability, manageability, and efficiency in a compact chassis. This space-conscious server meets the needs of a diverse set of customers—from SMBs to service providers. The DL160 Gen9 Server is designed to handle a wide range of deployments—from general-purpose IT infrastructure to emerging New Style of IT workloads such as cloud and Big Data in distributed computing environments. Even though budgetary pressures force small- to medium-sized businesses to do more with fewer resources, many companies continue to look for new ways to grow their businesses and remain competitive in today’s evolving business environment.
To meet those goals, SMBs need an IT infrastructure that’s quick to set up and easy to maintain. They also need scalable solutions that can grow right along with their businesses. Ideally, they want “everything IT” converged into a single platform. SMBs can get what they need with the HP ProLiant DL160 Gen9 Server—a fully integrated platform designed to perform and scale. Offering standard HP Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) capabilities for simplified IT infrastructure management, 16 slots for DDR4 memory, eight drives, and two standard NIC ports, ProLiant DL160 Gen9 Server offers the ideal set of features for meeting SMBs’ everyday business needs. And with the DL160 Gen9 Servers’ built-in virtualization features, server, and storage utilization increases, and IT infrastructure runs more efficiently at a lower cost. HP ProLiant DL160 Gen9 Server enables SMBs to start small, and scale easily and cost-effectively, as their businesses grow. Faced with an ever-growing customer base, service providers need an agile IT infrastructure that scales readily and consumes minimal space and energy. And to support today’s mega data-centric trends—Big Data and cloud computing (i.e., the New Style of IT)—service providers need to optimize their IT environments and move to a distributed computing model where servers are deployed as compute nodes, network nodes, and database nodes. With 16 DIMM slots, 94 percent efficient power supply, ASHRAE A3/A4 compliance (for higher ambient temperature support), dense 2P/1U design, and Flexible LOM capability, the ProLiant DL160Gen9 Server enables service providers to minimize the operational costs of energy and space—making it a perfect match for today’s hyper-scale environments.
