The ProLiant DL580 Generation 2 server is an enterprise class, 4-way server designed for environments that require maximum computing power and robust high availability features in a versatile, rack-optimised form factor. Based upon industry standard processing, memory, IO and networking technologies, the ProLiant DL580 G2 provides the highest levels of performance demanded by today's compute intensive applications. Unparalleled high availability features, including Advanced Memory Protection technology, an integrated RAID controller, a duplex drive cage, and hot-plug redundant components guarantee maximum uptime. The ProLiant DL580 G2's Integrated Lights-Out technology, allows remote administration from a standard web-browser without ever having to visit the server. Despite the 4U dense form factor, the ProLiant DL580 G2's highly expandable architecture provides maximum application deployment flexibility in a virtually cable-less interior design.

Four-way performance leadership in industry-standard benchmarks for transaction processing (TPC-C) and messaging and collaboration (MMB2 and Lotus NotesMarks.); Eliminate I/O system performance bottlenecks with a 400 MHz Front Side Bus, 200 MHz DDR SDRAM, PCI-X technology and Ultra3 SCSI interfaces; Duplex hard disk drive (HDD) backplane improves system performance by allowing you to place frequently accessed data (such as log files) on a separate channel from data that is not accessed as frequently (such as the OS.); Quad peer PCI-X subsystem enhances performance because there are no more than 2 PCI-X slots per bus; Hot-plug PCI-X technology offers up to 100 MHz peak performance in all available PCI slots for optional SAN connectivity and high bandwidth devices such as NC7770 Gigabit Ethernet and the Smart Array 5312 Ultra3 controller.
Tool-less maintenance and service access to internal and hot-plug components without sacrificing internal expansion capacity; Up to 32GB of memory, 2 multibay media bays, 6 full-length PCI-X slots, and 4 internal hard disk drives, to provide the flexibility required to deploy and redeploys in a variety of application environments; Multibay media bays can be ejected for additional security or replacement with optional DVD ROM drive, etc; Snap on rail kits and cable-less design built specifically for the 4U form factor allows hassle-free rack deployments in pre-merger Compaq, 3rd Party and Telco racks; Internal and external diagnostic lighting indicators quickly and accurately diagnose failed components like power supplies, fans, processors, DIMMs and hard drives for warranty replacement; QuickFind Diagnostic Display provides instant visual indication of fault conditions within all major subsystems of the server, allowing rapid response to service events.
Built-in Integrated Lights-Out Standard combines secure, basic management functions and diagnostics with essential virtual presence and control to manage ProLiant systems across the data centre or across the world. Easily upgradeable to iLO Advanced for more robust, hardware-based remote administration to maximise availability and graphical control over your ProLiant DL580 G2; ProLiant Essentials Foundation Pack, shipped with every ProLiant TM server, enables you to quickly install and configure systems, proactively manage change and ensure continuous server operations; Embedded RBSU (ROM-based Setup Utility) performs CPU, memory and boot disk diagnostics as well as configures initial hardware settings and prepares your ProLiant DL580 G2 for OS installation; Receive alerts from Insight Manager 7 before degraded systems failure and with the Pre-Failure Warranty, receive replacement of degraded disk, CPU and memory before they affect productivity.
Advanced Memory Protection provides higher levels of memory protection than ECC memory and protects up to 24 GB of memory from unplanned downtime; Hot-Plug Mirrored Memory eliminates service interruptions caused by multi-bit memory errors and allows you to replace failed memory without ever taking down your server; Single-Board Mirrored Memory protects against service interruptions caused by multi-bit memory errors by allowing the customer to replace a failed DIMM during a regularly scheduled maintenance window; Online Spare Memory automatically fails-over degraded DIMMs to a spare memory bank based on pre-defined single bit error thresholds, allowing for scheduled maintenance; Dynamically add memory without powering down or rebooting the server (Microsoft® Windows® Server 2003 only).
