The HPE Proliant BL460C Gen10 V6 stands as a testament to Hewlett Packard Enterprise's commitment to delivering cutting-edge server solutions. This latest iteration combines performance, scalability, and versatility, making it an ideal choice for modern data centers.
The P09524-B21 Model
The specific model under scrutiny is the P09524-B21, distinguishing itself with a unique set of specifications. This variant, in particular, emphasizes flexibility and customization by excluding the CPU and RAM components. While unconventional, this approach allows businesses to tailor the server configuration according to their specific needs and budgetary considerations.
Management and Security Features
The HPE P09524-B21 Proliant Bl460c Gen10 V6 No Cpu No Ram 2 Sff Hot-swap Server is a high-performance blade server designed for enterprise-level computing. It has several management and security features that ensure the server is secure, reliable, and efficient.
Here are some of the key management and security features of the HPE P09524-B21 Proliant Bl460c Gen10 V6 No Cpu No Ram 2 Sff Hot-swap Server:
- iLO 5: Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) 5 is a remote server management tool that allows IT administrators to monitor and manage the server remotely. It provides enhanced security features such as Secure Boot, Secure Erase, and Runtime Firmware Validation.
- HPE iLO Amplifier Pack: This is a management software that helps automate server deployment, configuration, and updates. It also provides an inventory of server hardware and firmware, enabling easy management of multiple servers.
- HPE OneView: This is a converged management platform that provides a single interface for managing the server, storage, and networking components of a data center. It simplifies management tasks and reduces the risk of errors and downtime.
- HPE Trusted Platform Module (TPM): TPM is a security chip that provides hardware-based encryption and key management. It helps secure the server by providing a root of trust for secure boot and secure storage.
- HPE Smart Array Gen10 Controllers: These are intelligent storage controllers that provide enhanced performance, data protection, and flexibility. They also have features such as secure erase and automatic drive encryption to ensure data security.
- Redundant Power Supplies: The server has redundant power supplies to ensure continuous operation even in the event of a power supply failure. This helps reduce downtime and ensure high availability.
Blade Server Architecture
The Proliant BL460C Gen10 V6 is designed as a blade server, a form factor known for its space efficiency and scalability. Blade servers are characterized by their compact size and modular architecture, allowing data centers to maximize their computing power within a confined space. This architecture promotes easy expansion and management, making the BL460C Gen10 V6 an attractive choice for businesses aiming to optimize their infrastructure footprint.
Performance Benchmarks and Comparison
The HPE Proliant BL460c Gen10 V6 is a server blade that is designed for high-performance computing and virtualization workloads. Here are some key performance benchmarks and comparisons for this server:
- Processor: The Proliant BL460c Gen10 V6 does not come with a CPU by default, so the performance will depend on the CPU that is installed. This server blade supports Intel Xeon Scalable processors, which offer high performance and scalability for demanding workloads.
- Memory: Again, the performance of the Proliant BL460c Gen10 V6 will depend on the amount and type of RAM that is installed. This server blade supports up to 2TB of HPE DDR4 SmartMemory, which can provide high performance and reliability.
- Storage: The Proliant BL460c Gen10 V6 comes with 2 SFF hot-swap drive bays, which can support SAS, SATA, or NVMe drives. The server blade also supports HPE Smart Array Controllers for increased storage performance and reliability.
- Networking: The Proliant BL460c Gen10 V6 comes with a range of networking options, including HPE Ethernet 10Gb 2-port 521T Adapter, HPE FlexibleLOM, and HPE Synergy 6820C 25/50Gb Ethernet Adapter.
- Performance comparisons: The Proliant BL460c Gen10 V6 is a high-performance server blade that can compete with other servers in its class. For example, the server blade can offer up to 71% more computing performance compared to the previous generation, the BL460c Gen9. It can also offer up to 27% more memory bandwidth compared to the BL460c Gen9.
SFF Hot-swap SATA HDD Bays
Storage plays a pivotal role in server performance, and the P09524-B21 model addresses this need with two Small Form Factor (SFF) Hot-swap Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) 6GB/s HDD Bays. These bays offer hot-swappable convenience, enabling seamless maintenance and upgrades without interrupting server operations. The SATA interface ensures efficient data transfer rates, contributing to overall system responsiveness.
Network Connectivity and Expansion Slots
The HPE P09524-B21 Proliant Bl460c Gen10 V6 is a blade server designed for high-performance computing and virtualization environments. Here are some details on its network connectivity and expansion slots:
Network Connectivity: The HPE Proliant Bl460c Gen10 V6 supports 10Gb Ethernet connectivity with dual-port embedded network adapters. It also has the option to add a FlexibleLOM (LAN on the Motherboard) for additional networking options such as a Fiber Channel or Converged Network Adapter (CNA).
Expansion Slots: The server has two PCIe 3.0 mezzanine slots that can be used for adding expansion cards such as network interface cards (NICs), storage controllers, or graphics processing units (GPUs) to boost the server's performance.
Additionally, the HPE Proliant Bl460c Gen10 V6 server supports up to two SFF (small form factor) hot-swappable hard drives for storage. It also has a maximum memory capacity of up to 1.5TB with 24 DIMM slots, supporting DDR4 memory modules at speeds of up to 2933 MT/s.
It's worth noting that the server doesn't come with a CPU or RAM installed, so those components will need to be separately sourced and installed before the server can be used.
