Data sheet
Enhance data center efficiency and get better return for your budget with the
HP ProLiant DL370 G6 (4U optimized rack) and the HP ProLiant ML370 G6
(4U expandable tower) servers.
Data centers have grown in size and complexity,
and are characterized more by diversity than
standardization. This means that your IT administrators
have more on their hands than ever before. As they
struggle to enhance data center efficiency they also
need to rein in rising power costs.
been optimized for virtualization and consolidation
environments and are well-suited for deployment
in growing businesses, remote office sites, or data
centers and have also been designed to bring you the
utmost confidence to run your business.
The HP ProLiant DL370 G6 and the HP ProLiant
ML370 G6 servers help strike that balance. HP Insight
Control suite with the new Dynamic Power Capping
technology can triple1 the capacity of the data
center and tailor the power supply to the desired
configuration. Talking about efficiency, both the
DL370 G6 and the ML370 G6 offer the broadest line
up of Intel’s latest processors—Intel® Xeon® 5600 and
5500 series. Additionally, the HP ProLiant Onboard
Administrator powered by the Integrated Lights-Out 2,
offers features like simplified server set up, health
monitoring, power optimization, thermal control, and
remote management.
The DL370 G6 and the ML370 G6 promise to deliver
enterprise-class performance. Both of these servers
come equipped with Intel Xeon 5600 and 5500 series
processors. The DDR3 memory technology offers
twice2 the bandwidth, double the capacity, and 25%
less power, and since both of these servers support
18 DIMMs slots customers can achieve up to 192 GB
of DDR3 registered memory. Both the DL370 G6 and
the ML370 G6 include the new generation of HP Smart
Array Modular Controllers delivering 200% greater
performance3 and enhanced backward compatibility.
Key features and benefits
The DL370 (4U rack optimized chassis) and
the ML370 (expandable tower chassis) deliver
industry‑leading management tools, leading
performance, expandability, flexibility, and the latest
energy-efficient technologies. These servers have

hen moving from DDR2 to DDR3, memory bandwidth doubled from
W
667 to 1333 MHz. JEDEC is the governing body of memory standards.

T he bandwidth of the controller has doubled from 3 Gb/s SAS to
6 Gb/s SAS, equaling 2x the bandwidth or 200% faster. Workloads,
applications, and environments may affect actual performance. For more

Configure an optimized server—with the confidence
to know it’s right. Use ProLiant Solution Blocks and
HP configuration tools co-designed and validated with
leading software vendors, and their energy-efficiency
leadership.
Improved power management
Struggling to get your soaring power bills under
control? Not only does the right-sized ProLiant Power
Supplies help reclaim lost data center power, but the
Intelligent Power and Cooling Savers can tell when
power is being wasted. Correspondingly, you get
to improve your IT architecture’s capacity up to 3x
with Dynamic Power Capping, which is available as
part of Insight Control suite. In addition, the Intel 45
nanometer technology and dynamic resource scaling
further enable more efficient power management.
Supporting the high-efficiency power supplies, both
the DL370 G6 and the ML370 G6 put a check on
your undesirable power consumption. Improved power
efficiency enabled by HP ProLiant Common Slot
Power supplies (460W and 750W)4 and HP ProLiant
Common Slot Power supplies (1200W)5 has earned
the servers various energy saving certifications.
Deploy easily, manage seamlessly
The ProLiant portfolio of deployment tools, such as
SmartStart, Pre-Boot Execution Environment (PXE),
Array Configuration Utility (ACU), and ROM‑Based
Setup Utility (RBSU) enables a hassle-free set up.
The HP ProLiant Onboard Administrator and
HP Systems Insight Manager gives you the flexibility
to manage and monitor all your DL370 G6 and
ML370 G6 servers seamlessly, and make it an ideal fit
for remote deployments.
Enterprise-class redundancy features
Business continuity is a must for businesses, both
big and small. Intolerant to downtime as your
business is, you can count on the DL370 G6 and the
ML370 G6 to deliver 24x7 accessibility and proven
data integrity. There are three hot plug fans which
are standard offering with every system, for full
redundancy features you can purchase the DL370 G6
and ML370 G6 redundant fan kit. Combined with this
is the availability of two processors and support for
redundant power supplies delivering high-availability
and high-performance system processing.
Increase flexibility
As mentioned earlier, both of these servers support
PCI‑Express Gen2 slots (nine available) coupled with
the 8-bay drive cage provide room for expansion.
2
Another outstanding feature is the flexibility of the
tower models to convert to rack configurations,
hence lending your infrastructure an additional
deployment flexibility.
Optimize system performance and ease of
serviceability
With its inherent features that enhance business
outcomes and facilitate ease of serviceability, the
DL370 G6 and the ML370 G6 have achieved
numerous #1 benchmarks—VMmark, TPC-C,
SPECweb2005, and SPECweb2009. Feature
enhancements like nine available PCI-Express Gen2
slots, 18 DIMM memory slots supporting Advanced
ECC, mirroring mode, and lock-step mode give these
two servers a visible competitive advantage. For
tool‑free internal serviceability, snap on quick-deploy
slide rails included with rack models and tower-to-rack
conversion kits. They enable rapid installation and
save valuable time.
Ideal environments
A variety of environments from corporate work
groups to critical remote sites
With its large internal storage capacity—
accommodating everything from web applications
to databases—24x7 accessibility and ease of
serviceability, the DL370 G6 and the ML370 G6 are
the ideal choices for virtualization and consolidation
environments spanning across corporate work groups
to critical remote sites.
Growing businesses with expandability
requirements
Designed to meet the requirements of growing
businesses, the DL370 G6 and the ML370 G6 have
nine available I/O slots that support PCI-Express
Gen2. And what about storage capacity, you may
ask. Put your fears to rest as the 8-bay standard drive
cage provides up to 4.8 TB of storage (8 x 600 GB).
Critical remote sites
You need not worry about connectivity or performance
when you are working in a remote location. The
new HP ProLiant Onboard Administrator and
HP Systems Insight Manager (SIM), makes sure that
you get enterprise-class management features,
therefore proven availability and uptime for
critical applications.
