The HP ProLiant BL460c Gen8 Server Blade is a dual-socket server blade engineered for unprecedented performance, enhanced flexibility and simplified management which makes it the standard for data centre computing. It packs in more performance with a 33% increase in memory DIMM count, Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 Processors, faster I/O slots and enhanced Smart Array Controller that now ships with 512MB Flash Back Write Cache standard. In addition, it is also more flexible with the HP FlexibleLOM which provides the ability to customise server networking today and the ability to meet future needs without overhauling server hardware.
Redefining the Customer Experience
Automated Energy Optimization improves the server's ability to analyse and respond to "3D sea of sensors" data within the server as well as self-identify location and inventory through Insight Control for maximum workload optimisation across the entire datacentre. Dynamic Workload Acceleration delivers smarter data protection for ever-increasing drive capacities, real-time workload-aware analysis to optimise and adapt storage performance, and 6X faster solid state performance versus previous generation. Integrated Lifecycle Automation, an industry first, provides embedded provisioning tools, Active Health monitoring, and system maintenance capabilities standard on all ProLiant servers using the industry-leading HP iLO Management Engine. User-inspired design features like HP SmartDrive carriers and the HP Smart Socket guide anticipate your needs and virtually eliminate common issues that result in downtime.
Intuitive, Configurable Management System Eliminates Tedious, Time-Consuming Tasks
HP Intelligent Provisioning takes strengths from products like HP SmartStart, HP Smart Update Manager and HP Service Pack for ProLiant, enhances them with the latest ease of use features, and places them where you can use them instantly - on the system board. HP Active Health System provides 24x7 continuous health monitoring, 100% configuration change logging, and faster problem analysis with HP Service and Support. Start problem analysis 5x faster using unified diagnostic tools with secure data transfer to HP Service and Support. Agentless hardware monitoring and alerting capabilities are built into the server with HP Agentless Management (runs on the iLO 4 chipset). Starts working the moment that a power cord and an Ethernet cable is connected to the enclosure.
Built for Performance and Easier Access
Improved access to mezzanine cards enables quicker removal and easy access to the new FlexibleLOM card. The DIMM tool included inside every ProLiant BL460c Gen8 makes the removal and insertion of individual DIMMs even easier. Expanded memory options now include the HP 24GB (1x24GB) Three Rank x4 PC3L-10600R (DDR3-1333) Registered Low Voltage FIO Memory Kit. Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 Processor Family offers higher performance, power efficiency, more adaptability, and enhanced security with Intel QuickPath, Integrated Memory Controller, Turbo Boost ,Intelligent Power Technologies, Intel Secure Key, Intel OS Guard, and Floating Point Bit Depth Conversion.
Improved Application, Storage, and I/O Performance
HP SmartMemory has unmatched performance, quality and manageability advantages above industry standard memory. Supports RDIMM, UDIMM and LRDIMM with up to 512GB capacity and 256GB capacity at 1866MHz. SmartMemory in the BL460c Gen8 delivers up to 33% more memory capacity over previous generations. Embedded Smart Array P230i (HP Secure Encryption capable) or P220i RAID controller with 512MB Flash Backed Write Cache standard. Support for 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 BL460c G7. Two x16 PCIe 3.0 I/O expansion slots support the highest performing mezzanine option cards now and into the future. HP FlexibleLOM provides the ability to customise 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.

Open box products are brand new, unused items for which the outer packaging has either been opened or damaged. Open box products are covered by the full manufacturer warranty.
Products we classify as refurbished have been checked and tested to ensure they are fit for sale and come from a variety of sources.
Refurbished products might include:
HP Renew products have been remanufactured to the same standard as new HP products and are backed by the original HP warranty. In other words, there is no difference between the warranty offered for a new HP product and the equivalent HP Renew product.
Categorically no! All our stock is ethically sourced within the EU and backed by warranty. Hewlett Packard products sold as new are retail sealed units covered by the full manufacturer warranty. For added peace of mind, we can supply serial numbers up front which you can validate online to confirm warranty cover ahead of purchase.
