A new compute experience
The era of digital transformation
Digital transformation is all about accelerating innovation, and we see digital transformation
creating remarkable new value for companies of all sizes. Our customers are applying digital
technologies to their business in fundamental ways to enable new value creation.
This requires the Right Mix of dedicated IT, on-premises and hosted clouds, or what we
refer to as Hybrid IT, to drive the right business outcomes. Historically, Hybrid IT required
trade‑offs—obtaining the flexibility offered by the off-premises clouds but at the potential loss
of the security and control offered by on-premises computing. Hewlett Packard Enterprise has
changed that paradigm with a new compute experience that marries the advantages of on and
off-premises. And with the word “compute” we are not limiting ourselves to just the server but
the whole infrastructure with storage, networking, and the software that controls it.
HPE provides a new compute experience with a better way to deliver business results through
a software-defined infrastructure. A better way to protect your business and data with new
security capabilities, and finally, a better way to consume and pay only for what you use. This
new compute experience is powered by the world’s most secure industry standard servers
based on our Gen10 architecture.
These Gen10 servers are built using our next-generation HPE Server Options. HPE Server
Memory, Server Storage, Persistent Memory, Server Networking, and Power Supplies deliver
key innovations that enable the performance, security, reliability, and efficiency found in our
next‑generation servers. In turn, HPE servers, storage, and networking are powered and
protected by our next-generation Rack and Power Infrastructure.

Expect the efficiency, performance, and reliability to
productively manage your expanding workloads
Cloud computing, hybrid infrastructures, virtualization, and Big Data all increase server
workloads, requiring additional resources to ensure your server is running as reliably and
efficiently as possible. One such critical resource is server memory. Choosing a server
configuration that provides the best combination of speed, bandwidth, and capacity will ensure
your server is optimized to handle its anticipated workloads.
HPE Server Memory is more than an option—it is a critical component in meeting today’s
IT priorities: reducing operational costs, and maximizing performance for workloads such as
server virtualization, cloud computing, high-performance computing, and resource-intensive
applications. Hewlett Packard Enterprise provides a large selection of server memory types and
capacities at a variety of price points to support your current and future computing needs. All
HPE Server Memory solutions are rigorously tested and authenticated to ensure the utmost
compatibility with HPE servers.
HPE Server Memory Options
High-performance, reliable, and efficient components for optimizing the performance of
your HPE server
HPE SmartMemory
Designed specifically for enterprise customers with a significant need for performance and
capacity along with a desire to manage TCO, HPE SmartMemory offers the widest selection of
server memory types and capacities. HPE’s server memory configuration options enable total
memory capacity optimization to support server workloads while reducing power consumption.
In fact, using HPE SmartMemory in your HPE ProLiant server can help it use less energy in
comparison to third-party server memory, improving your return on IT investment (RoIT).
HPE SmartMemory runs at top throughput speed, which reduces transaction response time,
and enables improved use of applications. High-capacity HPE SmartMemory dual in-line
memory modules (DIMMs) give an extra boost to performance, providing servers with the
bandwidth to host performance-intensive applications.
Family guide
Page 6
In addition to performance and efficiency, HPE SmartMemory also delivers on reliability.
HPE selects only the highest quality dynamic random access memory (DRAM) modules from
top suppliers. The higher quality minimizes issues that could affect system reliability in any way.
Each DIMM is then put through rigorous firmware and integration testing to simulate extreme
operating environments and conditions. Such rigorous testing and subsequent authentication
unlocks performance and high-efficiency features—optimized for HPE servers.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise continuously improves our memory testing processes, both at
supplier manufacturing sites and in our own facilities. From more stringent test algorithms to
voltage, temperature, and frequency adjustments to exercise all memory operating modes,
our goal is to guarantee that you are getting the most efficient, high-performing, and reliable
memory available to maximize uptime.
Memory device failures are a top concern for IT professionals as—if not corrected—they
can result in service events, even server crashes. To outpace increasing threats, HPE servers
support a comprehensive suite of memory error detection and correction features—collectively
called Memory RAS (reliability, availability, serviceability). Recent HPE engineering reports
corroborate that when memory RAS technologies are implemented on a scale-up server, the
annual crash rate (ACR) can be reduced by approximately 85%.
The latest innovative addition to the suite of HPE memory RAS features is HPE Fast Fault Tolerance,
which monitors and corrects DRAM device failures, while allowing the remaining memory to run at
full speed. HPE Fast Fault Tolerance is an Intel® RAS feature and is not enabled on AMD servers.
HPE Gen10 Servers configured with HPE SmartMemory offer an extra layer of protection against
unplanned downtime and even server crashes. But, unlike the previous Double Device Data
Correction (DDDC) feature, you no longer need to compromise on performance. Fast Fault Tolerance
enables the system to boot with full memory performance while monitoring for DRAM device
failures. In the event of a memory failure, the memory subsystem automatically reorganizes the way
data is stored in memory to create a protected region just large enough to correct the DRAM failure,
while allowing the remaining portions of memory to continue to run at full performance.
HPE SmartMemory:
•Operates at 2666 MT/s data transfer speeds with Gen10 memory subsystem bandwidth
66% faster than 2400 MT/s in Gen9 servers, increasing the applications performance for
memory‑intensive applications
•Uses HPE’s iLO technology to provide rapid insight into and resolutions for memory-related
problems
•Ensures authentic HPE memory modules with the highest quality in the industry
•Consumes less power, reducing IT budgets
•Delivers exceptional total server memory capacity by configuring high-capacity registered DIMM
(RDIMM) and load-reduced DIMM (LRDIMM) options—up to 128 GB octal rank LRDIMMs

HPE NVDIMMs
The HPE 8 GB NVDIMM was the first product in the HPE Persistent Memory portfolio. It was
designed for HPE ProLiant Gen9 servers featuring Intel Xeon® E5-2600 v4 processors. The first
two servers supporting HPE NVDIMMs were the HPE ProLiant DL360 and DL380 Gen9 servers.
HPE next-generation NVDIMM is 16 GB, double the capacity of the first generation. With up to
384 GB capacity in a single server, HPE NVDIMMs improve application performance by
reducing traditional storage hardware bottlenecks like write latency.
HPE NVDIMMs are ideal for accelerating databases and analytics workloads, and are
complementary to existing storage technology, such as SSDs. HPE NVDIMMs are one of
the fastest tiers of storage on HPE ProLiant servers. HPE NVDIMMs can also benefit other
workloads and applications where traditional storage bottlenecks would benefit from the lower
latency storage tier of HPE Persistent Memory.
Additionally, HPE NVDIMMs have the resiliency you have come to expect from storage
technology by utilizing higher endurance DRAM and components that help verify data is
moved to non-volatile technology in the event of a power loss. You have the added assurance
that data will be preserved and is recoverable after an outage. HPE NVDIMMs include a flash
component plus an HPE Smart Storage Battery that provides you with a persistent storage
capability at memory speeds without the data volatility of memory.7
HPE NVDIMM hardware is only half of the puzzle—with the other half being the software
ecosystem enablement we are driving in the industry. Hewlett Packard Enterprise is working
directly with software application and operating system partners to develop the software
ecosystem for HPE Persistent Memory to verify that you can take full advantage of the
performance potential of this exciting new technology.
HPE Scalable Persistent Memory
The newest addition to the HPE Persistent Memory portfolio is HPE Scalable Persistent Memory,
an integrated storage solution that runs at memory speeds with terabyte capacity unlocking new
levels of compute performance with built-in persistence for your business workloads.

a persistent store and the HPE Smart Storage
Battery providing the backup power source
to move data from DRAM to NAND Flash.
HPE Scalable Persistent Memory is the right offering to transform your IT infrastructure,
providing new levels of performance while still delivering high levels of reliability and efficiency.
How does HPE Scalable Persistent Memory work? First, we reserve a portion of DRAM as
persistent memory for application acceleration. DRAM is the media used on server memory
DIMMs. As an enterprise-class technology and the fastest technology on the memory bus,
DRAM is the best choice for application acceleration. It’s also volatile, which means data is only
retained when DRAM has a power source.
“With the use of predictive analytics across the application-to-storage
stack, media companies can pinpoint problems faster, stop the finger
pointing, and avoid time-wasting disruption. Time is money, and being
able to restore operations 20 times faster with Scalable Persistent
Memory is huge for our customers.”
– Dr. Glodina Connan-Lostanlen, CMO, Imagine Communications
Family guide
Page 12
We use Flash technology, the same media used by solid-state devices, as a persistent store for
the data accelerated on DRAM. Data running on the persistent memory DRAM portion moves to
flash when the server is powered down. A backup power source holds power up on the memory
bus to facilitate moving data from DRAM to Flash. All of this functionality is controlled by
HPE server BIOS using industry-standard components you have deployed in your data center.
What can HPE Scalable Persistent Memory deliver for your business workloads?
•First, HPE Scalable Persistent Memory delivers the fastest persistent memory in the market at
scale. Higher capacity persistent memory running at DRAM speeds, means opening up many
possibilities for enhancing business workload performance. Larger in-memory compute can
help eliminate storage bottlenecks with in-memory databases.
•With HPE Scalable Persistent Memory, checkpoints operations can now save to larger
persistent memory. This helps improve overall application performance with up to 27X faster
application checkpoint operations.8
•Faster restores are a reality as well with HPE Scalable Persistent Memory, up to 20X faster
than restoring from Flash media alone.9
•HPE Scalable Persistent Memory also enables faster real-time analytics through HTAP and
enhanced caching tiers for software-defined storage.
HPE Scalable Persistent Memory can be used to unlock storage bottlenecks in most
applications and help you conduct business more quickly. Put your vital business data to work
for you faster with HPE Scalable Persistent Memory.

Smarter infrastructure means smarter business
Your data center’s job is to provide the foundational agility and compute power to support your
business and enable your customers. HPE Rack and Power Infrastructure provides configurable,
state-of-the-art infrastructure solutions, out of the box, that are able to meet the needs of
businesses of all sizes, now and in the future.
The demand for data center infrastructure is growing. Big Data and analytics, mobility, the
Internet of Things, and social media drive the digital transformation taking place in business.
At HPE, we identified key business challenges you face today—density optimization, power
and cooling, security, ease of use, and interoperability—and used them to create an improved
infrastructure to drive better business. HPE understands these challenges, and we’ve
reimagined the future of rack and power infrastructure from the ground up to make the next
generation of infrastructure stronger, smarter, and simpler.
HPE Racks
Today, IT is looked upon as an enabler and driver of business outcomes. But that doesn’t usually
come with a commensurate increase in budget and floor space. Whether you’re just looking into
getting your first server rack, or researching advanced, high-density options for your enterprise
data center, HPE Racks offer you an amazing range of features and options designed to satisfy
your business needs and fit within your IT budget.
You can choose from a variety of models up to 48U, 800 mm wide, and 1,200 mm deep—and
then add standard options to customize your rack for your exact IT requirements. From the 80%
open perforation front door—to optimize airflow—to flexible power distribution units (PDUs)
and installation options, HPE Racks are designed to accommodate HPE and third-party servers
and equipment with minimal cabling, and still facilitate airflow and equipment access.
With the exponential increase in business critical and confidential data that traverses the
internet and is stored on- and off-premises, security is foremost on everyone’s mind. In many
cases, stringent corporate, industry, and government regulations dictate the security provisions
required of a data center. So it goes without saying that the more secure your rack and power
infrastructure the more secure your server, storage, and networking.
How secure? How about multifactor authentication with options like fingerprint biometric
scanners, wireless card readers and digital keypads before you ever even get into the rack.
Of course, HPE Racks are optimized to the size and dimensions of HPE servers to offer a
complete data center solution from a name you trust. In fact your complete HPE solution—from
racks and power infrastructure to servers and networking equipment—is designed to work
together for easy installation and manageability.

HPE Keyboard/Video/Mouse
Running data centers is a 24x7 operation. HPE Keyboard/Video/Mouse (KVM) switches allow
you to check in on your IT operations whenever and from wherever. HPE’s KVM solutions
enable you to communicate with all your installed IT equipment and manage any device locally
or remotely from a single console.
Analog switches allow for local, direct access to equipment in your data center while our
IP‑based switches add remote configurability at the rack, row, and data center level.
Should your needs change, many of our analog switches are easily upgraded to IP-based
capabilities through the addition of a USB remote access key. Arguably the most important
piece of hardware in the server management process, there’s an HPE KVM switch to fit your
application with a wide variety of port quantities available.
To provide easy access to your KVM switch, HPE KVM consoles plug into your switches and
serve as a dashboard for your entire rack—or even your entire data center. Easily accessible,
comprehensive status data for each individual server, storage, and networking device enables
you to pinpoint problems quickly and accurately, saving you time and minimizing unit downtime.
Of course, this efficiency carries over to the console itself. It will go to sleep whenever you’re not
using it, saving power for what matters—your data center and business. A display port comes
standard with all HPE KVM consoles, facilitating easy sharing of the data and a cut above
industry-standard VGA ports you’ll find elsewhere. And the best part? Our 1U switches and
consoles are form factor optimized, leaving more room for servers, compute power for your data
center, and growth for your business.
HPE Power Distribution Units
No matter what pieces of equipment you add to your rack, they all have one thing in
common—they need power.
Secure, intelligent, and flexible power distribution is foundational to a safer and more efficient
data center. Across a variety of workloads, our Standard, Advanced and Enterprise PDU
solutions get power where it needs to go, when it needs to get there—and give you the data
you need to make informed management decisions along the way.
Our next-generation PDUs are designed to be smarter, to get power where you need it to
go—and keep it there. Innovative features like optional dual-locking power cords secure the PDU
to both power source and device, protecting against disconnection—accidental or intentional.
Our next-generation PDUs are designed to be stronger, with a 3-year warranty, and power
continuity and maintained performance at elevated temperatures like a 60-degree centigrade
operating temperature for more performance and less cooling costs.
Family guide
Page 17
HPE G2 Power Distribution Unit (PDU) is designed to be simpler, with a wide range of mounting
options to fit every application. Power where you need it, plus more room for compute, and
the highest-density PDUs on market means more power and less headache for even the most
demanding compute applications. Our PDU options are available in both single‑phase and
three-phase configurations. Our PDUs can be mounted vertically or horizontally with minimal
time and effort required for installation. HPE metered PDUs monitor the power consumption of
each individual server to ensure balanced loads and operation within power thresholds, while
optional environmental sensors ensure you’ll be the first to know if something is amiss. If you
require the ability to remotely power cycle IT equipment in your racks, try our HPE metered,
switched, and intelligent PDUs—all you’ll need to control power usage in your data center, down
to the individual outlet level, is an internet connection. Guarantee quality power distribution and
empower control with HPE PDUs.
HPE Uninterruptable Power Supplies
So you’ve invested in a new data center and infrastructure. What happens when you experience
your first power outage? Data center outages can be taxing on your IT resources and catastrophic
for your business. Take worry out of the equation with HPE Uninterruptable Power Supplies (UPS).
HPE’s UPS solutions protect against power issues. They provide enough time to gracefully shut
down connected IT loads or ride through short-lived power problems, helping ensure you don’t
lose any data and can restart with confidence when power returns.
Available in both tower and rack configurations, as well as density-optimized configurations to fit
most any setup, our UPS systems are as reliable as they are scalable. Optional Extended Runtime
Modules can be added to increase your backup time by a factor of 10, ensuring you’re covered
until the power comes back on. When available power supply fluctuates outside of acceptable
limits, your UPS activates in anticipation of a total outage, ensuring a seamless transition and no
downtime. Protect your investments by protecting your data center with HPE UPS.

HPE Power Advisor
As IT evolves and system density increases, systems housed in a single rack can now
consume the amount of power once required for several racks. Effective sizing of a compute
infrastructure while managing IT costs requires realistic estimates of current and future power
and cooling requirements. Accurately estimating the power consumption of a server can define
power distribution requirements at the rack level and can be the starting point for estimating
the total power consumption and cooling needs for a data center. The HPE Power Advisor
is an easy-to-use tool that estimates data center power requirements for server and storage
configurations. HPE Power Advisor allows you to configure each individual server or node. You
can then duplicate the server configuration as often as necessary to populate an enclosure, and
then duplicate it to populate a rack. The result is you can build a complete data center quickly.
Version 7.x includes the new HPE ProLiant Gen9 servers and options.
Features of the HPE Power Advisor:
•Accurately estimate power consumption of your HPE server and storage products
•Select the appropriate power supplies and other system components
