Optimized Performance

HPE iLO Advanced gives you access to Hewlett Packard Enterprise patented Jitter Smoothing technology for significant performance improvements, real savings, and a more intelligent server environment.

Workload Performance Advisor, providing you an easy method to get maximum performance from your server by providing recommendations on the right BIOS parameter settings.

Jitter smoothing mitigates processor frequency fluctuation for reduced latency, more deterministic performance and, in some cases, improved overall workload throughput above Turbo Boost Mode1 alone.

Simplified Server Management at Scale and Built-in Group Management with iLO Federation

HPE iLO Advanced offers Group Virtual Media which gives you the ability to replicate the same script media within an iLO Federation group.

Group Power Control lets you turn several servers on and off with a single click.

Group Power Capping allows servers to share power consumption among a group of servers.

Group License Activation for faster implementation of iLO licenses.

HTML5 remote console for iLO.
