The standard for rack-optimised servers

The ProLiant DL family offers you a choice of versatile, resilient servers suited to diverse workloads in data centre environments of all sizes.

A new formula for server virtualisation

The new HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10, featuring the AMD EPYC SoC, is the first server to bring the balance of resources required to fully utilise the CPU – optimally running disparate workloads to make virtualisation a foundation of digital transformation.

Matching compute to your workloads

The HPE ProLiant DL family provides solutions that match a wide range of compute requirements. The 500 series consists of scale-up servers for business critical workloads like Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle environments. The 300 series is comprised of versatile performance servers to support a variety of applications. The 100 series optimises storage, performance, efficiency, and manageability to address multiple workloads. The 10 series is right-sized for the budget-conscious.

Review the ProLiant DL580 Gen10 family guide Scale up for your business critical workloads

The HPE ProLiant DL580 Gen10 is the new scale-up enterprise performance standard for business critical workloads. The 4P/4U server delivers high performance and expandability, unleashing the power of compute.

Make your organisation agile

HPE ProLiant DL Gen10 servers are designed for agility through management and tuning features as well as enhanced performance with HPE Scalable Persistent Memory. Match compute to workload and optimise based on your unique needs.

Protect your digital assets and data with unique security

HPE ProLiant DL Gen10 servers feature our unique firmware protections, placing cybersecurity controls right into the silicon.  Combined with our protected supply chain, this enables a “Silicon Root of Trust” to mitigate firmware-based cyber threats.

Control your financial destiny in IT

HPE gives you the ability to pay only for server resources used, scaling on demand without overprovisioning or incurring exponential costs. Flexible payment models align with business outcomes and can scale based on unpredictable future needs.
