HP’s line of Proliant servers has been a mainstay in datacenters for years. There’s good reason why: each subsequent generation gets better than the last. The HP Proliant DL380p Gen8 server is no exception. Not only is it the fastest SMB server tested in the PCMag Lab to-date, but this impressive piece of iron is bundled with new features introduced across the Proliant family. A few of these new capabilities include; SmartDrive—which helps server administrators rebuild an array during disaster recovery; FlexibleLOM—which allows IT to easily change the server’s network connectivity options, without purchasing new hardware; and a Smart Socket guide—which help protect a processor from sustaining damage during an install.
