A new compute experience simplifying Hybrid IT
Trusted servers built for today and tomorrow
We’re living in an era of digital disruption, where the accessibility and adoption of Big Data, mobility,
Internet of Things, and cloud-native technologies are enabling companies to transform their
businesses in exciting new ways. At the heart of these technologies are applications and data, and
this has placed IT at the center of business innovation.
IT needs to operate at the speed of today’s business, to be an accelerator of new ideas, products
and services. For IT to be successful in speeding time to value, a Hybrid IT infrastructure is needed
in order to deliver the right mix of infrastructure and services to develop and deploy applications on
a continuous basis and draw insights and make decisions from data.
For IT decision makers who must define their right mix of Hybrid IT across on-premises dedicated
and cloud environments as well as hosted cloud, a new compute experience is required to obtain
cloud economics and agility with the security of an on-premises data center. HPE ProLiant servers
are designed to simplify Hybrid IT by providing the agility of a modernized infrastructure, the
security to protect your digital assets and the economic control to pay for only what your use.

HPE hard disk drives (HDDs) deliver proven performance for any workload with reliable data
integrity and security at the lowest cost per gigabyte. Available for three types of workloads:
enterprise (performance optimized), midline (capacity optimized), and entry. With two
interfaces: SAS (12G) and SATA (6G); two form factors: SFF (2.5") and LFF (3.5").
•Enterprise HDDs (SAS 15K and 10K) deliver the highest levels of performance and reliability
for your mission-critical and I/O-intensive applications.
•Midline HDDs (SAS/SATA 7.2K) deliver high capacity, performance, and reliability for your
business-critical applications.
•Entry HDDs are built for non-critical needs for today’s server applications and storage
environments. These high-capacity drives provide the lowest $/GB.
Accelerate the performance of your data-intensive applications with HPE solid-state drives
(SSDs) offering high performance and low latency for enterprise environments. HPE SSDs come
in six form factors: SFF (2.5"), LFF (3.5"), M.2, M.2 Enablement Kits, Mezzanine and Add-in
Cards. They are available in three broad categories based on target workloads: Read Intensive,
Mixed Use, and Write Intensive.
The workloads indicate the number of drive writes per day (DWPD) that you can expect from
the drive.11
•Read Intensive SSDs are typically the lowest price with endurance of <= 1 DWPD. Ideal for
boot/swap, web servers, and read caching.
•Write Intensive SSDs typically have the highest write performance, with a typical endurance
of >= 10 DWPD. Ideal for online transaction processing (OLTP), business intelligence, and
Big Data analytics.
•Mixed Use SSDs are for workloads that need a balance of strong read and write performance,
with Endurance typically >1 and <10 DWPD. Ideal for high I/O applications with workloads
balanced between read and write.
All HPE server drives feature HPE Digitally Signed Firmware, which prevents unauthorized
access to your data by providing the assurance that the drive firmware comes from a trusted
source and has not been altered. Each drive is also backed by 3.35 million hours of the
industry’s most rigorous testing and qualification program.12 For more information, visit
hpe.com/info/serverstorage.

H
pre-release hardware and software, final
results may differ, March 31, 2017.
•Infrastructure management complexity—There are too many infrastructure management
tools to learn and operate, resulting in high IT operating expenses. This proliferation drives up
software license costs, as well as increases the time and cost of maintenance—including skills
maintenance.
•Scale and speed—In enterprise data centers with thousands or tens of thousands of servers,
traditional infrastructure management tools cannot scale or operate at the high speeds
necessary to effectively manage server sprawl.

HPE Support for ASHRAE guidelines
Data center cooling systems represent
a significant portion of your capital
expenditure (CAPEX) and use a
substantial amount of energy.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise supports
the adoption of less expensive and
eco‑friendly cooling methods encouraged
by the latest American Society of Heating,
Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning
Engineers (ASHRAE) guidelines for
temperature and humidity operating
ranges of IT equipment.
Most HPE Gen10 server products
support the 2014 ASHRAE class A3
guidelines or higher. Available 2H2017.

•Siloed infrastructure and outdated IT operational models—There are often too
many non‑standard manual tasks, an over-reliance on subject matter experts, and an
ever‑expanding backlog of projects. The answer to these challenges is to follow a new IT
operational model—namely the software-defined data center (SDDC).
•Planned and unplanned downtime—Depending on your line of business, the cost of
downtime can be millions of dollars of lost revenue. Knowing these costs, IT pros need tools
and processes designed to eliminate or dramatically reduce downtime.
To address these gaps, a new management methodology is required—one that drives better system
control and greater insight into problems before they occur. And Hewlett Packard Enterprise has it.
HPE infrastructure management is delivered through a complete portfolio of HPE ProLiant
lifecycle management capabilities that can flexibly operate from embedded management
and system utilities, converged management for software-defined data centers, and support
management. Managing HPE ProLiant servers with HPE infrastructure management results
in increased efficiency and precise control of resources, with a rich set of capabilities that are
easy to access and simple to use, HPE infrastructure management encompasses critical areas
such as server deployment and configuration, health and alerting, energy, power, remote
management, and warranty and contract information access via a cloud-based portal. The
core components that comprise HPE infrastructure management are Embedded Management,
Integrated Lights-Out (iLO), and HPE OneView. With HPE infrastructure management’s built-in
automation, HPE ProLiant servers are so intelligent that they practically manage themselves.
In addition, scripting tools such as the Scripting Tool Kit (STK) as well as Service Pack for
ProLiant and Smart Update Manager provide breakthrough system maintenance tools that
systematically update HPE ProLiant rack and tower servers with one-click simplicity at the scale
of your data center.
HPE OneView infrastructure management
HPE OneView is your infrastructure automation engine to simplify operations, increasing the
speed of IT delivery for new applications and services. Through software-defined intelligence,
HPE OneView brings a new level of automation to infrastructure management by taking a
template driven approach to provisioning, updating, and integrating compute, storage, and
networking infrastructure. Designed with a modern, standard-based API and supported by a
large and growing partner ecosystem, HPE OneView also makes it easy to integrate powerful
infrastructure automation into existing IT tools and processes.
Take command with HPE OneView to:
•Deploy infrastructure faster: Template-based automation enables IT generalists to rapidly
and reliably provision resources in response to application owner requirements.
•Simplify operations: Agentless monitoring, online firmware updates, and a new Global
Dashboard deliver streamlined lifecycle operations at scale.
•Increase productivity: The unified API gives developers and ISVs the power to unify
infrastructure automation with application and IT service delivery.
HPE OneView innovations provide you the industry’s best infrastructure management
experience, simplifying operations for HPE BladeSystem, HPE ProLiant servers, HPE Apollo
servers and HPE Superdome X systems, HPE StoreServ 3PAR storage, HPE Networking, and
HPE ConvergedSystem. It is an essential ingredient in the HPE Hyper Converged 380 virtual
machine vending environment and powers management for the industry’s first composable
infrastructure, HPE Synergy. By deploying HPE OneView today, you place your IT operations
firmly on the path toward a composable future.

HPE iLO 5 server management
HPE Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) allows you to configure, monitor and update your HPE servers
seamlessly from anywhere in the world. Providing you with consistent insight into the health
and operation of your servers, HPE iLO arms you with the tools to resolve issues and keep your
business running. Featuring the latest innovations in simplified operations, performance, and
security, HPE iLO allows you to manage your entire server environment with ease.
Upgrade your licenses for additional functionality, such as graphical remote console, multi-user
collaboration, video record/playback, and much more. Use the HPE iLO Licensing Guide to
determine which of our three licensing upgrade options is right for you.
Optimize performance with Intelligent System Tuning
Through HPE’s partnership with Intel, Intelligent System Tuning (IST) is a new set of server
tuning technologies that enable you to dynamically configure server resources to match specific
workloads. IST produces significant performance improvements, real savings, and a more
intelligent server environment.
Jitter Smoothing
Engaging processor turbo boost can cause frequency fluctuations or “jitter” which results in a
constant struggle between maximum output and deterministic performance needs. HPE’s Jitter
Smoothing technology mitigates processor frequency fluctuation to reduce latency and deliver
deterministic and reliable performance. In variable workloads where processor frequency changes
occur often, Jitter Smoothing can improve overall throughput above turbo boost mode alone.17
Jitter Smoothing is ideal for high frequency traders, high performance computing, and
workloads where processor frequency is highly variable.
Available on all Gen10 servers with iLO 5 and an iLO Advanced or above license.
Core Boosting
Utilize fewer processors while improving workload performance with HPE Core Boosting
technology. Core Boosting enables higher processor frequencies on more active cores than
standard Intel processor profiles. Higher performance across fewer processors can result in
significant savings when it comes to core-based licensing. In some cases, customers with
core-based licensing like Oracle can experience up to $100K in annual savings or $500K over
5 years.18 Core Boosting is ideal for virtualized environments, Big Data workloads, core-based
licensing applications, and workloads where performance is a competitive advantage.
Coming Soon. Will be available with select Intel processors on select Gen10 platforms.
Workload Matching
Select from preconfigured workload profiles to automatically tune internal server resources to
experience up to a 9% performance improvement over server default settings.19
Available on all ProLiant Gen10 servers with iLO 5. For more information, visit hpe.com/info/ist.
iLO Advanced Premium Security Edition
Exclusively available on HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers, the iLO Advanced Premium Security
Edition license delivers all the management capabilities of the iLO Advanced license with
premium security features like Commercial National Security Algorithms (CNSA) mode, Runtime
Firmware Verification, Automatic Secure Recovery and Secure Erase of NAND/User data.
