The HP ProLiant BL420c Blade Server Overview

Unlike ProLiant BL280c G6 with PCIe 2.0 and running at 500 MB/s, the HP ProLiant BL420c blade server ups the ante with mezzanine expansion slots that use the PCIe 3.0 running at 1GB/s raw bandwidth per lane per direction. The half-height HP ProLiant BL420c server blade sports a dual-socket alongside mezzanine expansion slots that supports the 16 lanes and eight lanes. The ProLiant BL420c Server Blade is worth the investment if you are looking for robust storage networking benefits as the server comes with the HP FlexibleLO (Flexible LAN-on-Motherboard).

With the BL420c, you have two HP Smart Array Controllers:

  • The HP Smart Array P220i/512 MB FBWC (flash-backed write cache)
  • A license key (serial attached SCSI SAS) for SAS RAID 0/1 support with HP Dynamic Smart Array B320i

These help the server in providing the versatility and performance required by a functional data center.

With the combined x16 PCIe 3.0 bandwidth being ~32 GB/s, the ProLiant BL420c allows a 200 percent improvement in bandwidth from its PCIe technology plus an added 200 percent with its double PCIe lanes running through one of the mezzanines, bring the boost to a whopping 400 percent figure.
