HP ProLiant BL465c Server Blade

HP offers powerful, reliable server blades with the same trusted features as award-winning HP rack and tower servers. With features equal to standard 1U rack mount servers, the two processor, dual-core BL465c combines energy efficient compute power and high density with expanded memory and I/O for maximum performance. A balanced architecture featuring Next-Generation AMD Opteron™ processors with DDR2 memory, hot plug serial hard-drives, support for Multifunction Gigabit networking and multiple I/O cards provides a performance system ideal for the full range of scale out applications. In this small form factor, the BL465c includes features to ensure high availability such as hot-plug hard drives, memory interleaving, embedded RAID capability, and enhanced remote Lights-Out management.

The HP ProLiant BL465c Server Blade provides enterprise-class features for high performance and reliability without compromising energy efficiency or density.
