The HP ProLiant BL680c G7 Server Blade provides maximum performance and unparalleled scale-up expansion never before seen in a
four-processor x86 server blade. The ProLiant BL680c G7 supports the Intel® Xeon® E7-4800 family and E7-8867L processors. Fully
utilizing the design architecture of the Intel® Xeon® 7500 chipset, up to four top performing 130W processors are supported along with
64 RDIMM slots creating the first blade server to offer 2.0TB of memory. The six 10Gb FlexFabric ports with built-in FCoE, Flex-10,
hardware-based accelerated iSCSI, iSCSI boot, TCP/IP offload engine, and autosensing 10GbE and 1GbE combined with the seven (7)
PCIe Gen2 mezzanine expansion slots. The extensive expandability and performance of the BL680c G7 creates an extremely powerful
database engine while handling a variety of very demanding workloads and making traditional multi-processor (MP) rack to blade
transition a true reality.
Traditional MP server blades are typically unbalanced providing processor performance and density at the expense of proportional
memory capacity and I/O bandwidth. As such, these unbalanced servers fail when faced with larger databases higher-density
virtualization applications. Today, you have a better alternative. By designing a balanced architecture, the BL680c G7 is a very
progressive 4P blade offering that ensures that all subsystems can be used effectively under a broad range of enterprise applications
and workloads. The 4P BL680c G7 along with the 2P BL620c G7 together provide a complete Intel® Xeon® portfolio creating a new
class of scale-up HP ProLiant server blades delivering the reliability and performance you need to handle demanding workloads with
confidence.

HP Service Pack for
ProLiant
HP Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) and HP Smart Update Manager (HP SUM)
version 5 provide a new, comprehensive approach to firmware and system
software maintenance. Together they provide better operating stability and
ensure maximum uptime. The SPP will be updated at a predictable cadence,
typically coinciding with new HP server hardware launches. By enabling
firmware to be updated online and integrating firmware and system software
updates in one operation HP SUM and the SPP offer faster updates of
individual servers and dramatically faster updates of entire BladeSystem
enclosures. Further improving system uptime and stability is the fact that HP
provides 12 months of support on each Service Pack for ProLiant.

HP ProLiant BL680c Generation 7 (G7) Server Blade
Standard Features
The user experience around HP SUM and the SPP has been improved in several
ways, starting with the web download. A single web page provides access to a
single download containing both the latest version of HP SUM version 5 and
the latest SPP. Optional smaller subsets with only specific types of servers or
specific operating systems are offered to save on download time. The HP SUM
application has been re-written to provide a more straightforward, intuitive
user interface that guides the user through the steps of discovery, analyses
and update, providing comprehensive information on available updates,
criticality and interdependencies. This information is also available in reports.
By providing the option of multiple local or shared repositories which can be
easily updated from hp.com, HP SUM provides the tools to optimize stability
and consistency throughout the company. While HP SUM and the SPP will
recommend the combinations of firmware and system software that HP has
found to be the best practice, the application gives customers the flexibility to
set their own specific baseline.
The Service Pack for ProLiant has been rigorously tested with specific
attention for interaction between firmware, drivers and agents both within the
server as well as in interaction with the BladeSystem enclosure components
(Onboard Administrator and Virtual Connect). This testing ensures the highest
quality as well as providing the input for HP SUM to deploy updates taking into
account all interdepencies, when determining the correct updates and order of
update deployment.

Memory
HP Memory Quarantine (based on Intel MCA Recovery technology). In conjunction with the operating
system support, allows a server to recover from uncorrectable memory errors which would have
otherwise caused a system crash.
Double Device Data Correction (DDDC). DDDC provides the ability to save a DIMM from being
replaced due to a bad dram device.
Data Bus ECC protection for automatic correction from a single data bit error and detection of
double data error bits.
Advanced ECC / SDDC provides continued memory operation in the event of a single memory device
failure and allows removal of a single DRAM from the memory map if it exhibits a failure and
recovers its data into a new device.
Supports for both x4 and x8 Intel® SDDC.
Demand Scrubbing writes corrected data back to the memory once a correctable error is detected
on a read transaction.
DIMM Address/Control Bus Parity Protection provides a means to detect and protect command and
address errors.
Memory Failover uses a mirrored DIMM once a failed DIMM in a mirrored set is detected.
Memory Mirroring provides a copy of memory stored with dynamic failover in case of failure within
socket (intra-socket) memory mirroring.
The system will operate in non-hemisphere mode when mirroring is enabled.
Rank Sparring (On Line Spare) provides dynamic failover to a spare DIMM rank or spare rank pair
behind the same memory controller. Cannot be enabled concurrently with memory mirroring.
NOTE: HP offers the rank sparing rather than DIMM sparing as rank sparing uses less spare memory
resulting in less overhead.
Failed DIMM Isolation identifies a specific failing DIMM lockstep pair thereby enabling the user to
replace only the failed DIMM pair. Identifies a single DIMM for correctable errors and DIMM pair for
uncorrectable errors.
Virtualization
Intel® VT-x (FlexMigration, FlexPriority, and Extended Page Tables) provides:
DA - 13742 Worldwide — Version 28 — December 4, 2012
Page 11
QuickSpecs
HP ProLiant BL680c Generation 7 (G7) Server Blade
Standard Features
Platform control between the VMM and guest OSs for faster, more reliable and secure
transfers.
VM migration features that enhance flexibility for failover, load balancing, disaster recovery,
and maintenance.
Intel® VT-x Real Mode & Pause Loop Exiting:
Real Mode allows guests to operate in real mode, removing the performance overhead and
complexity of an emulator.
Pause Loop Exiting provides detection of spin locks in guest software and helps avoid lockholder preemption to reduce overhead and improve performance
Intel® VT-d (Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O) enables the VMM to assign specific I/O
devices to specific guest OSs improving security and availability.
Mezzanine options and I/O
Optional dual-port Fibre Channel mezzanine cards for redundant SAN connections.
Optional dual-port InfiniBand mezzanine cards for redundant high performance connections.
Six embedded Ethernet adapter ports for redundant LAN connections.
Multiple mezzanine I/O expansion slots each supported multiple data paths routed to redundant
interconnect modules.
Network Adapter Teaming (Bonding) provides network fault tolerance, transmit load balancing, and
switch-assisted load balancing.
Processor/Chipset
Processor Internal Sensors & Thermal Control protection against over-temperature conditions.
Cache parity/ECC protects cache data from accidental data corruption due to particle hits.
Machine Check Architecture (MCA) detects and captures hardware errors such as system bus, ECC,
parity, cache, other.
Enhanced MCA handling & error logging builds upon the original Machine Check Architecture to:
offers more "banks" and increased "resolution" for reporting errors that cause MCA events and 2)
sets check flags for the OS to poll.
External Bus Error Recovery (ECC) enables automatic correction from a single data bit error and
detection of double data error bits on the memory data bus.
Corrupt Data Containment tags faulty data before it is consumed (often called data poisoning) to
limit the impact to the currently running program and to greatly reduce the need to reset the
system.
On-Die Error Protection protects registers from particle hits.
Storage
Four hot-plug SAS/SATA/SSD drive bays.
Integrated HP Smart Array P410i Controller with RAID 0 and 1 standard; optional RAID 1+0, 5, and 6.
Integrated HP Smart Array P410i Controller upgradeable firmware with recovery ROM capability.
HP Smart Array P410i flash backed write cache (FBWC) options to 1GB.
Optional multiple Smart Array RAID mezzanine controllers (with BBWC and FBWC) for direct attach
and shared SAS storage external to the c-Class enclosure.
Intel® QuickPath Interconnect (QPI)
QPI Link Retry restarts as cycle when a failure is detected on the link.
QPI Clock Failover redirects the forwarded clock to one of the two failover clock lanes in the event of
a forwarded clock failure.

HP ProLiant BL680c Generation 7 (G7) Server Blade
Standard Features
QPI Self-Healing enables a QPI link to map a failed lane and downshift from full to ½ width (or ½
width to ¼ width) QPI link if there are errors on the link.
QPI Cycle Redundancy Checking (CRC) automatically detects data errors using a checksum of either
8 bits or 16 bits.
QPI Poisoning tags an erroneous packet with a "poisoned bit" on the QPI fabric.
QPI Lane Failover identifies a faulty lane within data paths removing them from operation reducing
command/address errors.
Server Blade Enclosure Infrastructure
Up to 10 hot-plug redundant Active Cool fans per enclosure.
Up to 6 hot-plug high efficiency redundant power supplies per enclosure.
Dual grid power providing redundant rack enclosure power feeds to the enclosure.

Memory
Memory Subsystem Architecture
For maximum memory bandwidth, performance, and capacity, each processor socket contains two memory controllers. Each memory
controller connects to two Intel® Scalable Memory Buffers (SMB) for a total of four SMBs per processor. Each SMB connects to four
RDIMMs for grand total of sixteen RDIMMs per installed processor (64 RDIMMs total per BL680c G7 server) providing up to 2.0TB of
memory (32GB RDIMMs x 64 DIMM slots).
All RDIMMs will operate at the highest possible speed for a given processor. Memory speed is not affected by number of RDIMMs or
ranks. However, memory speed is a function of the processors QPI bus speed per the following:
Processors with a QPI speed of 6.40GT will operate memory at 1066MHz
Processors with a QPI speed of 5.86GT will operate memory at 978MHz
Processors with a QPI speed of 4.80GT will operate memory at 800MHz
DDR3 and DDR3L Memory Population Guidelines
An overview of the RDIMM installation guidelines are summarized below. For detailed memory configuration rules and guidelines,
please see the BL680c G7 user guide at: www.hp.com/support and the Online DDR3 Memory Configuration Tool at:
www.hp.com/go/ddr3memory-configurator
1.
2.
3.
4.
Install only HP BL680c G7 supported DDR3 and DDR3L RDIMMs.
RDIMMs must be installed for processor 1.
Populate RDIMM slots for a processor only if the processor is installed.
To maximize performance in multi-processor configurations, distribute the total memory capacity between all processors as
evenly as possible.
5. The minimum configuration is two RDIMMs installed on processor 1.
6. RDIMMs must be installed in pairs with identical characteristics. When possible, for configuration simplicity, HP recommends
using RDIMMs with identical part numbers throughout the system.
7. For best performance, HP recommends that RDIMM pairs be populated in sequence by letter designation. Install RDIMM pair (4A,
5A) first, followed by RDIMM pair (12B, 16B), RDIMM pair (2C, 7C), RDIMM pair (10D, 14D), RDIMM pair (3E, 6E), RDIMM pair (11F,
15F), and RDIMM pair (1G, 8G).
8. When installing mixed rank RDIMMs for any processor, RDIMMs with the highest number of ranks must be installed in the white
RDIMM connector locations. This guarantees proper electrical signaling on the DDR3 channel since RDIMMs with higher rank
counts present larger electrical loading on the DDR3 channel and must be populated at the end point of the channel.
9. 1.5V DDR3 and 1.35V DDR3L RDIMMs may be installed within the same socket. In this case, all RDIMMs on that socket will
operate at 1.5V.
10. The BL680c G7 supports memory hemisphere mode (for a high-performance memory interleaving technology) as well as several
advanced memory modes (AMP) including advanced ECC, online spare, and mirrored memory. Please see the BL680c G7 user
guide at: www.hp.com/support for a description of each of these features and their memory configuration guidelines.
11. There are several additional recommended steps for memory performance optimization, please see the BL680c G7 user guide
at: www.hp.com/support for a complete list.
