HP Proliant XL230A Gen9 Server Modular Flexibility Leave a comment

As much as ten ProLiant XL230A blades, or server trays, match Vertically from the 5U Apollo 6000 chassis. The XL230A blade includes hot plug in or non-hot plug hard drives. Power, coolingsystem, media, and direction are managed in the chassis level to decrease cost of ownership. The Apollo 6000 chassis includes ten I/O modules which encourage network connections rates of 1GbE and 10 GbE for greater throughput.

Small review of the HP Proliant XL230A Gen9 Server:

The HPE ProLiant XL230A Gen9 server blade supports two Processors and is made for the HPE Apollo 6000 chassis. It provides modular flexibility and is intended to accommodate a lot of different workloads. I/O modules hosted at the chassis are special to every server tray and then put in in the back of the Apollo enclosure. The Apollo 6000 chassis supports ten server holes at five and front I/O modules in back with every server tray targeted at a certain I/O module. The XL230A supports the next I/O module riser alternatives:

Double FlexibleLOM — supports two Flexible LOM Choices

PCIe/FlexibleLOM — supports you high-profile PCIe board and one FlexibleLOM

HPE Ethernet double 1Gb 1-port i364 adapter

Network connection rates Comprise 1GbE, 10GbE, InfiniBand choices, and FlexibleLOM. Pictures are provided by an integrated Matrox G200, which can be standard equipment and supports HPE iLO 4 About System Management Memory.

Embedded direction is provided By iLO 4.0 along with a plethora of other management alternatives from HPE’s Gen9 server line.

Advantage of the HP Proliant XL230A Gen9 Server:

You will find 16 memory slots Complete, with every processor supporting eight memory modules. At a two processor configuration, together with all of memory slots packed with 128GB modules, the system will encourage a maximum of 2TB of memory card. Just DDR4 enrolled (RDIMM) or load-reduced (LRDIMM) memory modules are encouraged, DDR3 memory modules aren’t compatible with all the XL230A Gen9.

There’s space to house four small form factor SAS or SATA SSDs or HDDs. Maximum internal storage has been recorded at 15.36TB with SFF SAS HDDs. Storage controls start with the incorporated B140i controller however there are a few more choices to pick from supporting local storage and direct attached storage (DAS) and network attached storage (NAS) alternatives) The H240 controller is necessary if you’re planning on installing SAS drives. Added HD/RAID controls can only be mounted with the Apollo 6000 PCIe/FlexibleLOM Riser kit. Also encouraged is an inner Micro SD slot machine.

Performance

The ProLiant XL230A features Intel’s C610 chipset and supports a total of 2 processors. Administrators can select from Intel’s Xeon E5-2600 v3 or even E5-2600 v4 product lines, which have around 22 cores along with 44 virtual threads. Based upon your choice of processor, memory, and setup, the memory will operate in 1600Mhz, 1866MHz, 2133MHz, or a max of 2400MHz. Most compatible processors support Intel Turbo Boost Technology.

Conclusion

The XL230A is a Excellent overall Purpose blade server which may excel in many of unique applications.
