HP ProLiant DL580 G5 Server

The HP ProLiant DL580 G5 is the best in class platform for virtualization, combining Intel's newest Xeon® processor technology, maximum scalability and high availability features. This 4-socket server offers unsurpassed flexibility and serviceability in a versatile, 4U rack-optimized form factor. Based on the latest industry standard technologies, the DL580 G5 provides the highest levels of performance demanded by today's compute intensive applications.

Multiple high availability features promote maximum uptime. Remote management with Integrated Lights-Out 2 (iLO2) technology allows administration from a standard web browser without the need to visit the server. The highly expandable architecture provides maximum application deployment flexibility with the ability to add I/O, processing, memory or storage capability as needed.

What's new

The DL580 G5 now supports Intel® Xeon® 7400 series processors for more performance and configuration flexibility than ever before. Engineered to similar thermal design specifications as the 7300 series processors, the 7400 series drives new levels of performance previously unattainable with a 4 processor server.
