The ML350e Gen8 v2 Server Offers Storage Capacity That Grows as Needed and Protects Data



By Lucy Ellis

WW Product Marketing Manager at Hewlett-Packard


Growing businesses, whether SMBs or larger enterprises, must choose IT infrastructure that will allow the business to grow and change as needed. The HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 v2 Server is a great choice for SMBs as it gives storage capacity that not only protects data, but also can grow as the business grows.  


The HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 v2 server allows businesses to scale and grow with support for up to two processors, 12 DIMM slots, 16 small form factor (SFF) or 8 large form factor (LFF) drives, 6 PCIe slots, and 8 USB ports. In addition, this server requires low upfront investment, while providing expansion capabilities to meet growing business needs.




For example, the HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 v2 server’s standard configuration includes the HP Dynamic Smart Array B120i Controller, which supports up to 6 SATA drives with RAID 0, RAID 1, and RAID 10 capabilities. Raid 5 is also available with optional FBWC module. However, if further storage levels, or additional RAID (data protection capability) levels are required, the ML350e Gen8 v2 is compatible with HP Smart Array P-series Controllers and JBODS, allowing customers to increase the storage capacity plus prevent data loss due to a drive failure.  



When customers select the ML350e Gen8 v2 and HP Smart Array P430, P431, or P830 controllers, HP Secure Encryption is available, giving users additional security for data at rest. HP Secure Encryption is an HP Smart Array controller-based data encryption solution for data at rest on any bulk storage and cache memory attached to the HP Smart Array Px3x family of controllers, and is available for both local and remote key management deployments.  


Pairing the ML350e Gen8 v2 with Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials adds even more data protection to an SMB server solution. The ideal cloud-enabled server for small business, Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials provides a powerful and flexible solution that helps control access to customers’ business data and enables them to work remotely using almost any device. Additionally, with Essentials, customers can enjoy peace of mind with daily, automatic backups of every computer on the network and the Windows Server 2012 Essentials server itself.
