Standard Features
What is HP
SmartMemory?
HP SmartMemory is unique technology introduced for ProLiant Gen8 servers that unlocks certain
features available only with HP Qualified Server memory. HP SmartMemory enables ProLiant Gen8
systems to reliably identify and verify whether installed memory has passed HP's rigorous
qualification and test processes. And because the memory is authenticated, extended memory
performance features can be enabled through the system ROM. HP SmartMemory will provide a
platform to allow future memory-related support enhancements through HP Active Health System,
System Insight Management and Insight Control management software.
Memory Quality and
Reliability
Today's IT environments are seeing larger, more complex applications, an increase of mission-critical
data moving to the server, increasing demand for transaction processing and critical server
consolidation. Memory is a critical component of the information system, significantly defining the
systems reliability, performance, and increasingly the overall server and data center power footprint.
This is why HP Qualified Server Memory undergoes intense rigorous qualification process that begins
with using the highest quality components sourced from tier 1 DRAM suppliers. Only memory that
meets HP's strict requirements are selected to begin the HP Memory Qualification process. Unlike most
third party memory manufacturers, testing is performed and optimized on every HP ProLiant server
platform to ensure upmost compatibility, performance and reliability.
Performance
Because HP SmartMemory is certified, performance tested and tuned for HP ProLiant, certain
performance features are unique with HP SmartMemory. For example, while the industry supports
DDR3-1333 RDIMM at 1.5V, today's Gen8 servers support DDR3-1333 RDIMM up to 3 DIMMs per
channel at 1066MT/s running at 1.35V. This equates to up to 20% less power at the DIMM level with no
performance penalty and now with HyperCloud Memory on DL360p Gen8 and the DL380p Gen8 servers
will support 3 DIMMs per channel at 1333MT/s running at 1.5 V. In addition, the industry supports
UDIMM at 2 DIMMs per channel at 1066MT/s. HP SmartMemory supports 2 DIMMs per channel
1333MT/s, or 25% greater bandwidth.
Power Efficiency
Memory plays an increasingly larger part of the server's power consumption and choosing the most
efficient memory is a critical component in reducing your data center's overall power and cooling
requirements. This savings translates to reduced operating cost and a faster return on investment,
freeing up IT budget spent on power and cooling.
HP is committed to helping you get the maximum benefit per watt out of your IT infrastructure. For
example, HP SmartMemory 1.35V DDR3-1333 Registered memory is engineered to achieve the same
performance level as 1.5V memory. This also simplifies the HP memory portfolio making it easier to
select the right memory.
Pre-Failure Alert
When used in conjunction with Systems Insight Manager, the SMART capable firmware enables fault
prediction capabilities. If potential problems develop in one of the DIMMs, Systems Insight Manager
lets you know in advance so you can have the DIMM replaced, before it fails, under warranty.
NOTE: HP memory is protected by a Pre-Failure Alert when used with HP Systems Insight Manager,
allowing memory to be replaced before failure under warranty. In addition, HP memory is covered by a
one or three-year limited on-site warranty period for the system in which they are installed. The
memory warranty is automatically uplifted when used in a server for which a Care Pack is purchased.
Please see the Support Services section below for additional services.
HP Advanced Memory
Error Detection
Technology
In the ProLiant System ROM upgrade (version May 2011 or later), HP enhanced memory error
protection with HP Advanced Memory Error Detection Technology. This innovation monitors several
memory parameters and seeks out specific defects that either cause performance degradation or
significantly increase the probability of a non-recoverable memory condition. By improving the
prediction of critical memory error conditions, this technology prevents unnecessary DIMM
replacement and increases server uptime.

System which monitors changes to the server hardware configuration to enable lifecycle monitoring of
memory health status. Having insight into memory related service events will shorten diagnosing
problems and deliver rapid resolutions if and when failures occur. Whereas Pre-Failure Alert simply
notifies the administrator of an impending failure, HP SmartMemory will provide insight with rich
information on memory-related events like multi-bit errors or configuration issues.




Increased reliability since the memory undergoes an authentication process that verifies
qualification has been performed on HP platforms
Performance tuned and optimized for HP ProLiant servers
Future enhanced support through HP Active Health System
Is HP SmartMemory using proprietary memory technology?
HP SmartMemory uses industry standard memory that has been validated on HP systems. Since the
memory has completed HP's rigorous test processes on HP platforms, every memory characteristic is
known to have met the highest standards.
Will 3rd Party DDR3 memory work in my HP ProLiant server?
Yes. HP supports the Customers' right to choose other memory suppliers but is confident in HP's
quality and innovation. Features that are supported today for 3rd Party memory such as pre-failure
alerting and error event logging in the IML will remain the same. Enhanced memory performance
features that go beyond processor/chipset manufacturer POR specifications for memory speed and
power requirements will be unique to HP SmartMemory as they are a benefit of our system-level
engineering skills.
Will previous G6/G7 DDR3 memory work in my HP ProLiant server?

Standard Features
Will there be unique part numbers for Intel and AMD supported HP ProLiant servers?
HP has different part numbers for AMD and Intel servers because there are slight timing differences in
the memory controllers which can lead to different list of qualified parts.
Will 1.35V low voltage memory run at 1.5V?
Yes. 1.35V memory will safely run at 1.5V without harming the DIMM. RDIMMs operating at either
1.35V or 1.5V may be mixed in any order but the system will power them at the higher voltage.
What is LRDIMM?
LRDIMM or Load Reduced DIMM is an industry standard memory technology that has been adopted by
Intel for their next generation Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 family processor that addresses the need for
greater memory bandwidth and capacity. LRDIMM memory buffer reduces the electrical load to the
memory controller and allows higher capacity memory to run at 3 DIMMs per channel. LRDIMM is for
customers who require the maximum memory capacity.
Will LRDIMMs work with RDIMMs or UDIMMs?
LRDIMM, RDIMM and UDIMMs are all distinct memory technologies and cannot be mixed within a server.
The majority of ProLiant Gen8 servers support RDIMM, UDIMM and LRDIMM.
Why do some DIMMs include a heat spreader while other DIMMs of the same capacity, rank and
speed do not?
When a DIMM is first launched, it may require a heat spreader which allows the modules to maintain
certain temperature when installed in the server. As power consumption tends to decrease with new
DRAM revisions, the heat spreader is no longer required. The use of these DIMMs with or without heat
spreaders has been validated both functionally and thermally. They can be mixed within a system
without issues.

General Memory Population Rules and Guidelines:














Install DIMMs only if the corresponding processor is installed.
If only one processor is installed in a two processor system, only half of the DIMM slots are available.
To maximize performance, it is recommended to balance the total memory capacity between all installed processors and
load the channels similarly whenever possible.
When two processors are installed, balance the DIMMs across the two processors.
White DIMM slots denote the first slot to be populated in a channel.
Place the DIMMs with the highest number of ranks in the white slot when mixing DIMMs of different ranks on the same
channel.
Do not mix UDIMMs, RDIMMs or LRDIMMs.
Quad rank RDIMMs are not supported in HP ProLiant Gen8 servers.
Quad rank LRDIMMs are capable of up to three DIMMs per channel.
RDIMMs operating at either 1.35V or 1.5V may be mixed in any order, but the system will power them at the higher
voltage.
DIMMs of different speeds may be mixed in any order; the server will select a common optimal speed.
The maximum memory speed is a function of the memory type, memory configuration, and processor model.
The maximum memory capacity is a function of the memory type and number of installed processors.
To realize the performance memory capabilities listed in this document, HP SmartMemory is required.
