  • Product Description
Ultra-dense server blades optimised for rapid deployment and provisioning; Ideal for space-constrained enterprises and service providers
High performance 4-way server blade powering mission critical back-end applications
4-way blade server using Xeon processor technology
The HP ProLiant BL Line offers the industry's broadest portfolio of blade servers and technologies optimised to address customers' needs across data centre, service provider and telco environments.
The ProLiant BL p-Class system is part of the ProLiant BL servers and infrastructure portfolio developed for adaptive computing and optimised for rapid deployment and automated provisioning. The ProLiant BL p-Class system provides high performance, high availability server blades for multi-tiered data centre architectures.
The ProLiant BL p-class system enables dynamic scaling and protects your investment with an intelligent, modular infrastructure that can accommodate future server blades. The first 4-way server blade in the ProLiant BL p-Class family is the BL40p, engineered for the back-end enterprise space. This server blade features up to four Intel® Xeon™ MP 2.00 GHz/1M, 2.80 GHz/2M, 2.20 GHz/2M and 3.00 GHz/4M processors, PC2100 ECC SDRAM (12 GB max memory w/ online spare), Integrated Smart Array 5i Plus (with optional BBWC) and four hot-plug SCSI drives. Using the ProLiant BL40p in conjunction with other BL servers, expenses can be reduced by managing remotely from anywhere in the world with the advanced version of Integrated Lights Out (iLO). In addition, an integrated management system and full compatibility with the Insight Manager™ Suite gives you maximum virtual presence and control, management and health monitoring with blade visualization of all your applications.
