Business Agility and Workload Management

Today’s businesses are in most need of agility, flexibility, and scalability. Indeed, the needs of customers and the business can change rapidly and at a moment’s notice. That is why the HP gen 9 comes with the ability to offer value across multiple workloads.

With businesses operating in an environment that requires low costs, faster computing times and rapid innovation, the HP BL460c Gen 9 is capable of managing a variety of workloads without adding costs to your bottom line. The Gen 9 contains the appropriate storage capacity for varying workloads such as simple computing and virtualization. The HPE OneView platform makes it even easier for the Gen 9 to accelerate IT service delivery while boosting performance.

As the business environment continues to become fast-paced, the HP BL460c Gen 10 server has what you need to keep up. With its 16GB HPE Persistent Memory, there are only a few workloads that this server cannot handle. In fact, the Gen 10 features a drive improved economics framework that results in a 75% reduction of licensing costs. Simply put, the Gen 10 keeps you up to date with emergent IT infrastructure.

Performance Capabilities

The HP BL460c line of servers does not compromise on performance. In fact, the HP Gen 9 is equipped with an Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 processor that is capable of boosting performance levels by 21% from previous models. And with an HPE DDR4 memory capacity that has 2400 MT/s, the throughout ability of the Gen 9 is increased by up to 33%. If you have a power hungry data center, you need not look further than the HP Gen 9.

If you’re managing data resilient centers and highly analytical workloads, the HP Gen 10 server is a top choice. In addition to its previously mentioned 16GB HPE memory capacity, the Gen 10 also boasts the latest Intel Xeon Processor that is scalable with up to 26 cores. It also features 12Gb SAS and up to 2Tb of smart-memory. This means that its performance is unrivaled for a data center of any size.

Versatility and Scalability

The HP ProLiant Gen 9 maintains versatility for your data center in two main ways. First, its storage options that feature HPE Smart Arrays, smart host USB adapting, and B140i Controllers make memory capacity superior for this server. Secondly, its pass-through cards (particularly NVMe) enable an improved TCO to handle a range of workloads.

The HPE ProLiant Gen 10 Server does not compromise on versatility either. It features the highly innovative HPE Virtual Connect Enterprise Software that enables efficient migration from legacy systems to HPE OneView 3.0 and later platforms. If your data-center is lagging behind and needs an upgrade, the Gen 10 is definitely the way to go.

Wrap Up

When making the choice between the Gen 9 and gen 10 server, it comes down to your preferences in workload management, memory capacity, and scalability. Another factor is price per performance, with the M630 being one generation older and offering a lower cost and a great value. However, if you need and can afford current technology, the M640 would be best choice.
