  • Redefining the Customer Experience
  • Intuitive, Configurable Management System Eliminates Tedious, Time-Consuming Tasks
  • Improved Application, Storage, and I/O Performance
  • Built for Performance and Serviceability
  • Redefining the Customer Experience
    The user-inspired design features of the HP ProLiant BL420c Gen8 Server Blade anticipate your needs and virtually eliminate common issues that result in downtime. Integrated Lifecycle Automation, an industry first, provides embedded provisioning tools, Active Health monitoring, and system maintenance capabilities standard on all ProLiant servers and built using the industry-leading HP iLO Management Engine. Dynamic Workload Acceleration delivers smarter data protection for ever-increasing drive capacities, real-time workload-aware analysis to optimize and adapt storage performance, and 6X faster solid state performance versus previous generation. Automated Energy Optimization improves the server's ability to analyze and respond to "3D Sea of Sensors" data within the server as well as self-identify location and inventory through HP Insight Control for maximum workload optimization across the entire data center.
  • Intuitive, Configurable Management System Eliminates Tedious, Time-Consuming Tasks
    HP Intelligent Provisioning is a single embedded tool for all server set-up and configuration tasks. All of the firmware, drivers, and tools that you need to quickly get your systems online are built into Gen8 servers - no more CDs or DVDs needed. HP Active Health provides 24x7 continuous agentless health monitoring and alerting and 100% configuration change logging. Start problem analysis faster using unified diagnostic tools with secure data transfer to HP Service and Support. Smart Update is a breakthrough system maintenance tool with one-click simplicity that systematically updates firmware and system software across servers and blade infrastructures at the scale of your data center.
  • Improved Application, Storage, and I/O Performance
    HP SmartMemory provides unmatched performance, quality and manageability advantages above industry standards memory with support up to 384GB capacity at 1600 MHz. With SmartMemory, the BL420c Gen8 delivers up to 33% more memory capacity over previous generations. Storage Controller choices between HP Dynamic Smart Array B320i Controller with options for cache and SAS license upgrades OR HP Smart Array P220i controller with 512MB Flash Backed Write Cache supports HP Smart Storage and HP SmartDrives. Choice of two (2) 2.5-inch SFF SAS, SATA, SSD drives. PCIe 3.0 technology provides improved latency and up to 400% the bandwidth per I/O expansion slot compared to ProLiant BL280c G6. The server's x16 PCIe 3.0 Type B I/O expansion slot supports the highest performing mezzanine option cards, now and into the future. HP FlexibleLOM provides the ability to customize server networking today and the ability to meet future needs without overhauling server hardware. Provides choice of bandwidth and fabric (Ethernet, FCoE, InfiniBand), supports WOL, and provides a shared iLO port for ease of use.
  • Built for Performance and Serviceability
    Intel Xeon E5-2400 v2 Series Processors provide new levels of performance over the previous generation. The Health Status LED on the server blade and the Location LED on the HP Smart Drives allow for quick visibility to issues or blades that need to be located and serviced. The HP Smart Socket Guide provides ease and simplicity of processor installation or upgrade. Improved access to mezzanine cards enables quicker removal and easy access to the new FlexibleLOM card. The DIMM tool included inside every ProLiant BL420c Gen8 makes the removal and insertion of individual DIMMs even easier.
