Windows Server 2016 is upon us.
For a multitude of small-sized businesses, this is a very good opportunity to either start their server lives, consolidate existing servers, or upgrade current server assets.
I will be beginning a series of blog posts, hopefully biweekly, on HPE Proliant entry-level servers.
For this series, I will be looking at the single-socket Proliant ML10, the Proliant ML30, and the dual-socket Proliant ML150.
Proliant ML10 Gen9: this is the least expensive HPE Proliant server. Capable of using Intel Xeon in the highest end spec, the ML10 can came with up to 64GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM, and supports GPUs when used with Xeon CPUs.
Proliant ML30 Gen9: this is the latest iteration of the very venerable HPE Proliant ML310e. it also maxes out at 64GB of RAM, uses Intel Xeons, with space for 8 SFF/4 LFF drives, and 2x GbE NICs embedded. HPE iLO Advanced is also part of the basic package.
Proliant ML150 Gen9: this is the entry-level two-socket (dual CPU) HP Proliant tower server. It supports up to two Intel Xeon CPUs, and up to 256GB of DDR4 RAM. Larger than the previous servers mentioned, it can accommodate a total of 10 LFF drives or 16 SFF drives, managed by the embedded HP Dynamic Smart Array controller. HPE iLO 4 is part of the package.
We look forward to paring these servers with appropriate HPE Flex Solutions packages in order to bring you RealWorldSMB® reviews.
A blog post on HPE Flex Solutions will be forthcoming shortly.
- SFF: Small Form-Factor drive
- LFF: Large Form Factor drive
