Combination of Performance and Expandability in a Dense Form Factor

The HPE ProLiant DL120 Gen9 Server supports (1) Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3/v4 or E5-1600 v3/v4 processor offering improved performance and efficiency in a dense 1U chassis.

HPE DDR4 SmartMemory prevents data loss and downtime with enhanced error handling. Support of up to 256 GB max capacity with speeds up to 2400 MHz.

HPE SmartDrives continue to deliver optimal performance, capacity, and reliability to meet various customer segments and workload requirements at the right economics.

Supports up to (4) LFF and (8) SFF 12 Gb/s HDD/SSD options with maximum capacity of up to 40 TB.

Up to (3) PCIe 3.0 riser slots to support more IO with networking cards offering increased IO bandwidth and seamless expandability.

Cost Optimized 1-Socket Solution for Enterprise Class Workloads

The HPE ProLiant DL120 Gen9 Server helps reduce virtualization licensing costs with its 1U/1-socket cost optimized design for SMBs and service providers.

Embedded with 2x1GbE, up to (3) PCIe slots and choice of HPE FlexibleLOM provide you flexibility of networking bandwidth and fabric so you can adapt and grow to changing business needs.

80 PLUS gold certified entry-level redundant HPE Power Supplies provide up to 92% efficiency which combined with HPE power management features leads to reduction of power consumption and expense.

Improved ambient temperature standard with ASHRAE A3 support helps customers reduce cooling expense.
