What's new

  • New HDD offering

  • Latest Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3 Series processors

Near Continuous Data Protection

The HPE ProLiant ML310e Gen8 v2 Server utilizes HPE SmartMemory which prevents data loss and downtime with enhanced error handling while improving workload performance and power efficiency. Support for 4 UDIMMs with up to 32GB max capacity.

Smart Array options provide businesses RAID mirroring and striping capability to protect critical data while the Flash-backed write cache (FBWC) captures and holds data indefinitely in the event of a power loss, equipment failure, human error or virus attacks.

HPE Smart Drives improve serviceability and prevents data loss with features such as icon-based status display and Do Not Remove LED.

Dedicated iLO port facilitates secured and faster data transmission. ECC memory protects businesses from data loss and unplanned system downtime.

Flexible Options To Meet Changing Business Needs

HPE ProLiant ML310e Gen8 v2 Server provides HPE SmartDrives which offers more drive options including eight (8) Small Form Factor (SFF) and four (4) Large Form Factor (LFF) drive cages giving you flexibility for increased capacity for your local storage. Support up to 4TB per slot.

Supports 1600MHz DDR3 memory, with up to four DIMMs (32GB max) for increasing performance.

Four PCI Express (PCIe) slots, including two PCIe 3.0 slots, provide additional I/O performance.

Seamless Network Connectivity Extends Benefits of Converged Infrastructure

The HPE ProLiant ML310e Gen8 v2 Server offers compatibility with 24-port HPE 1810 Series Switches to enhance both connectivity and data availability.

Common pool of resources and applications results in a higher level of simplicity and flexibility in operations.

User-friendly interface on HPE PS1810 Series Switches allow for a consolidated view of servers and switches in the network so workloads can be prioritized.
