The ProLiant BL465c Gen8 Server Blade provides a unique blend of core density combined with a broad memory footprint in a half-height form factor that delivers unparalleled price/performance leadership for virtualization, IT infrastructure, database, and high-performance computing (HPC) environments. With up to 512 cores in a single enclosure and up to 2048 cores in a single rack, these servers provide very dense deployment for the data center.
The first server blade to deliver over 2000 cores per rack. It provides a unique blend of core density with a broad memory footprint in a half-height form factor, providing unparalleled price/performance leadership for virtualized environments. Designed for midmarket and enterprise IT environments, the HP ProLiant BL465c Gen8 Server Blade is an intelligent server that can meet the demands of your growing business, while enhancing the performance of applicationsand improving the computing power.
AMD Opteron 6300 Series Processors provide new levels of performance and efficiency over the previous generation.
The Health Status LED on the server blade and the Location LED on the HPE Smart Drives allow for quick visibility to issues or blades that need to be located and serviced.
Improved efficiency with support for 1.25V ULV and 1.35 LV HPE SmartMemory.
Improved access to mezzanine cards enables quicker removal and easy access to the new FlexibleLOM card. The FlexibleLOM was designed with easy lift and remove handles.
HPE SmartMemory provides unmatched performance, quality and manageability advantages above industry standard memory, with support for up to 512 GB capacity at 1333 MHz and up to 256 GB at 1600 MHz.
The integrated HPE Smart Array P220i RAID controller with 512 MB Flash Backed Write Cache supports HPE Smart Storage and HPE SmartDrives. Choice of two (2) 2.5-inch SFF SAS, SATA, or SSD drives.
BL465c Gen8 1x8 and 1x16 I/O expansion slots support the highest performing mezzanine option cards and provide I/O bandwidth improvements over the previous generation.
HPE FlexibleLOM provides the ability to customize server networking today and the ability to meet future needs without overhauling server hardware. Provides choice of bandwidth and fabric (Ethernet, FCoE, InfiniBand), and supports wake on LAN (WOL).

NOTE: 1: Processor wattage references reflect Thermal Design Power (TDP). Click here for more information on Thermal Design Power (TDP) and Average CPU Power (ACP) .
3: HP memory from previous generation servers are not qualified or warranted with this server. HP SmartMemory is required to realize the memory performance improvements and enhanced functionality listed in this document for Gen8. Click here for additional information on the HP SmartMemory .
LRDIMM, RDIMM and UDIMMs are all distinct memory technologies and cannot be mixed within a server. The majority of ProLiant Gen8 servers support RDIMM, UDIMM and LRDIMM.
UDIMM max DIMM population is 16.
Depending on the memory configuration and processor model, the memory speed may run at 1600 MHz, 1333 MHz, or 1066 MHz. Click here to see the Memory Population Table or the Online Memory Configuration Tool .
4: Supports one of the following FlexibleLOMs and iLO Management.
5: Supports FCoE, Flex-10, TCP/IP offload engine, hardware-based accelerated iSCSI, iSCSI boot, and autosensing 10Gb/1Gb Ethernet.
Each port is autosensing 1Gb/10Gb, and can interoperate with 1Gb HP BladeSystem c-Class interconnect components. Both ports will operate at the same speed.
FlexFabric capabilities require the use of an HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric module. Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) is supported with the HP 10GbE Pass-Thru Module, HP 6120XG Blade Switch with the CEE license installed, HP Cisco B22HP Fabric Extender and HP Cisco B22HP Fabric Extender with 16 FET for BladeSystem c-Class.
6: FlexibleLOMs are not compatible with prior generation c-Class server blades
7: The ProLiant BL465c Gen8 server includes the new HP small form factor (SFF) hot plug SmartDrive carrier for enhanced management and reduced maintenance errors. HP drives from previous generation servers are not compatible with the ProLiant BL465c Gen8 drive bays.
The mixing of standard SAS drives with SAS SSD drives is supported within the server, but limits the RAID configuration to two separate RAID 0 volumes. Mixing of other drives types is not supported.
8. This expansion slot supports dual-port mezzanine cards: one port is routed to interconnect module bay 3 and the other to bay 4.
9. This expansion slot supports dual-port and quad-port mezzanine cards. For dual-port cards, one port is routed to interconnect module bay 5 and the other to bay 6. For quad-port cards, one port is routed to interconnect module bay 5, one to bay 6, one to bay 7, and one to bay 8.
10. The above options are for integrated hypervisor virtualization environments needing a low cost boot solution with the highest performance and reliability.
