The HPE ProLiant BL460c Gen9 is a high-performance blade server that capably meets the demands of modern IT and virtualisation workloads. Boasting a powerful industry-standard support of Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 processors and DDR4 HPE SmartMemory, the ProLiant BL460c Gen9 delivers optimal balance of performance, scalability and storage options for a lower TCO. The dual 2.5 inch (SFF) SAS/SATA SSD/HDD drives support a combined capacity of 7.68TB, offering a winning combination of flexible storage options and a small physical footprint.
Dual processing power
This BL460c Gen9 blade server features an 8 core Intel Xeon E5-2609 v4 processor running at 1.7GHz, with a supplementary socket allowing you to increase the server processing power by adding a second CPU. The Intel Xeon E5 family was designed for building next-generation data centres, delivering versatility across diverse data centre workloads, whilst the v4 series offers a 21% performance increase over the previous version.
Superior memory performance
This HPE blade server features 16GB of 2400MHz DDR4 RDIMM memory and supports up to 512GB RDIMM/1024GB LRDIMM across 16 DIMM slots. DDR4 memory operates at a lower voltage than DDR3, DDR2 and DDR memory whilst featuring markedly better performance, thus offering faster operation at a reduced running cost. HP SmartMemory however, which Techbuyer recommends and fits as standard where possible, is specially designed to make the most of HPE servers, and as such offers a further 33% performance boost over standard memory.
This HPE ProLiant server features an HPE FlexFabric 10GB 2-port 536FLB FlexibleLOM network adapter, the next generation of 10GB Ethernet offering in a single-chip solution on a FlexibleLOM form factor. It provides full duplex Ethernet connectivity with support for HPE Virtual Connect FlexFabric blade interconnect technology, allowing each 10GbE port to be divided into four physical NICs and therefore optimising bandwidth management for virtualised servers. The HPE P244br Smart Host Bus Adapter provides enterprise-class storage performance and data protection, delivering increased server uptime by providing advanced storage functionality, and comes with 1GB FBWC.
Other connectivity is provided by a USB 3.0 socket and a Micro SDHC slot, whilst expansion via two PCI-E 3.0 x16 sockets is also available, further boosting the versatility of this HPE blade server.
