HP ProLiant BL620c Generation 7 (G7) Server Blade
Overview
The HP ProLiant BL620c G7 Server Blade offers unmatched scalability, performance, and economics in a two-processor
Intel® Xeon® server blade. The ProLiant BL620c G7 supports the Intel® Xeon® E7-2800 family and the E7-8867L
processors. Fully utilizing the design architecture of the Intel® Xeon® 7500 chipset, up to two top performing 130W
processors are supported along with 32 RDIMM slots providing 1.0TB of memory for ultimate virtualization efficiency. The
four included 10Gb FlexFabric converged network adapter ports with built-in autosensing 1Gb/10Gb Ethernet, FCoE, Flex10, hardware-based accelerated iSCSI, iSCSI boot, and TCP/IP offload engine combined with the three PCIe Gen2
mezzanine expansion slots yield an outstanding 96Gb of total I/O bandwidth.
The BL620c G7 is also perfect for 2P applications requiring performance and features greater than typical dual processor
(DP) Intel® Xeon® 5000 offerings. The scalability of the BL620c G7 offers up to 1000% the memory capacity and
increased memory performance along with an extensive list of memory RAS features, 2,000% the embedded Ethernet
bandwidth, 440% the virtual machines (VMs), 300% the on-board I/O expansion slots, and 440% the total I/O bandwidth
than other 2P Intel® Xeon® servers available today.
Traditional multi-processor (MP) class 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 and higher-density virtualization applications. Today, you have a better alternative. By
designing a balanced architecture, the BL620c G7 is a very progressive 2P MP blade offering that ensures that all
subsystems can be used effectively under a broad range of enterprise applications and workloads. The 2P BL620c G7
along with the 4P BL680c 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
management software 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.
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 rewritten 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.
HP Insight Foundation
The Service Pack for ProLiant (which includes HP SUM 5) can be
downloaded from: www.hp.com/go/spp/download. More information
can be found: http://www.hp.com/go/spp and

Insight Foundation is being baselined at version v8.70 which means
the following:
Its Media Kit (contains 2 SmartStart CDs, the Firmware DVD,
and the Management DVD) will continue to ship with all
supported ProLiant G7 or earlier BTO servers until the last
supported server is no longer shipping.
The Media Kit will not be updated past version 8.70.
ProLiant G7 or earlier CTO servers are able to order the Media
Kit with the understanding that the media is not updated. Please
check specific server QuickSpecs for availability of CTO Kit.

Availability
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:
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:

HP ProLiant BL620c Generation 7 (G7) Server Blade
Standard Features
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 lock-holder 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.
Four 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
Two hot-plug SAS/SATA/SSD drive bays.
Integrated HP Smart Array P410i Controller with RAID 0 and 1 standard
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.
Optional HP D2200sb Storage Blade for direct attached and shared storage within the cClass 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.
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.

HP ProLiant BL620c Generation 7 (G7) Server Blade
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® 7510 Scalable Memory Buffers (SMB) for a total of four SMBs per processor. Each
SMB connects to four RDIMMs for a grand total of sixteen RDIMMs per installed processor (32 total RDIMMs per BL620c
G7 server) providing up to 1.0TB of memory (32GB RDIMMs x 32 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 processor 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 BL620c 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 BL620c 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 BL620c 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 BL620c 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 BL620c G7
user guide at: www.hp.com/support for a complete list.
