Powerful Performance

Built on the Gen8 features of the ProActive Insight architecture, the HP BL660c Gen8 offers improvements in performance, memory, networking, I/O, storage, and management.

It supports up to four E5-4600 processors, up to four 10 Gb FlexFabric ports with the Gen8 FlexibleLOM solution and 1.0 TB of Gen8 HP SmartMemory (SmartMemory uses less power but without impact to performance), and comes with three PCIe 3.0 expansion slots (two x 16, one x 8).

Gen8 embedded Smart Array P220i RAID controller supports the HP Smart Storage and SmartDrive carrier, and a choice of a very wide section of hot plug SAS, SATA, SAS SSD, and SATA SSD hard drives.

With all this infrastructure in a box, you can handle more data-demanding virtualization, database, business processing, decision support, and HPC applications.

Ideal 4P Form Factor

The HP ProLiant BL660c Gen8 Server Blade is a new density-optimized server blade offering 4P performance in a single-wide, full-height form factor. 

You get double the computing density compared to the previous 4P Intel-based server blade without compromising on performance, scalability, and expandability.

2. Click here for more information on iLO .

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 HP SmartMemory . LRDIMMs and RDIMMs are distinct memory technologies and cannot be mixed within a server.Depending on the memory configuration and processor model, the memory speed may run at 1600 MHz, 1333 MHz or 1066 MHz.

4. FlexibleLOM options include 10Gb FlexFabric, 10Gb Flex-10, and 10Gb Ethernet.FlexFabric capabilities require the use of an HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric module. The server supports one or two FlexibleLOMs, which must be identical. For Pre-configured Model configurations, two FlexibleLOMs are already included; no additional FLexibeLOMs are added.For a Factory Integrated Model configuration with one FlexibleLOM, it is added in the HP Networking section of "Step 2" in the Factory Integrated Models section. For a Factory Integrated Model configuration with two FlexibleLOMs, the second FlexibleLOM (although same technology) is a different part number. User must select the first FlexibleLOM in the "Step 2" HP Networking section and select the second FlexibleLOM in the "Step 4" HP Networking section. All FlexibleLOMs are dual port: one port is routed to interconnect module bay 1 and the other to bay 2.

5. The HP Smart Array P220i includes 512MB flash-backed write cache (FBWC) supporting RAID 0 and 1 on pre-configured models and is optional on factory integrated models.The HPE Smart Array P220i supports upgradeable firmware with recovery ROM. The HP Smart Array P220i supports two (2) small form factor (SFF) hot plug drive bays.

6. The ProLiant BL660c Gen8 server includes the new HP hot plug small form factor (SFF) SmartDrive carrier for enhanced management and reduced maintenance errors. HP drives from previous generation servers are not compatible with the ProLiant BL660c 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.

7. The above options are for integrated hypervisor virtualization environments needing a low cost boot solution with the highest performance and reliability.
