How the HP ProLiant ML310e Gen8 v2 Server’s 26dB sound levels can benefit growing businesses.


When selecting the perfect server for a growing business there are many special circumstances you may need to take into consideration. For example, it is quite common for small office environments to be laid out with an open-office design. While this can be very beneficial for teamwork, common office machinery can be quite disruptive if it is too loud.


The HP ProLiant ML310e Gen8 v2 server is the perfect solution for this as it was designed to be extremely quiet with idle and operating sound levels reaching only 26 dB




This is quieter than many sounds you may encounter every day such as: truck traffic (90dB), a telephone dial tone (80dB), normal piano practice (60-70dB) and even a quiet library whisper (30 dB). This means the ML310e Gen8 v2 could be located on an office desk and still be whisper quiet to those who are working near it. 


Low sound levels are not the only benefit the HP ProLiant ML310e Gen8 v2 has to offer growing businesses. This single-socket 4U tower server is also ideal for remote sites and corporate branch offices that are running file/print, web messaging, and small vertical applications or databases. In addition, the HP ProLiant ML310e Gen8 v2 server provides a 4U chassis for tight space requirements, while tool-less access to system components enhances serviceability.


Offering the latest Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3 series processors, the ProLiant ML310e Gen8 v2 supports up to 3.6 GHz and 4 cores, and provides the processing power needed to handle a variety of workloads. This server also offers outstanding configuration flexibility with support for up to two Large Form Factor (LFF) or four Small Form Factor (SFF) drives, four DDR3 UDIMMs, 300 W or 750 W power supplies, and optimal deployment options via two PCIe slots and seven USB ports.
