high-performance and versatility. The HP ML370 G3 is an older model
business server, as it still has a serial port. But this may make it the
right solution for interface with other older IT devices. It has a
powerful Intel Xenon processor that is fast and the standard Ethernet
and USB 2.0 ports. It can be upgraded to a dual processor if more power
is required and it runs on the Windows NT 4.0 operating system. HP ML370 Gen3 Features:

supporting 2.2Ghz, 2.7Ghz and 3.0Ghz Xeon processors and up to 32GB of
RAM. The HP ML370 G2 is designed primarily for small business. It has a
serial port so it has connectivity options for older hardware and a
powerful Intel Xenon processor. It can be updated with expansion slots
for memory and the CPU may also be upgraded. It can be mounted to a rack
if needed or used as a stand-alone. HP ML370 Gen2 Features:
HP ML370 G1 /
Generation 1 Originally offered under the Compaq Proliant brand, the

900Mhz Pentium processors with up to 16GB of RAM. The HP ML370 G1 is an
older server for businesses and it has the connections needed in serial
and parallel ports for older hardware. But since it has an Intel Pentium
processor, it still has use for a business and can be had at a
reasonable price. It features Insight Manager, a program that actively
monitors the operation of the server as well as the clients it serves
for maximum uptime and minimum downtime. HP ML370 Gen1 Features:
HP ML370 Server Review
The HP ML370 was announced during the time of Lindenhurst and Nocona
Xeon chipsets by Intel. This was a time when key server vendors were
starting to take Intel productions seriously for its price and
performance. Quite naturally, HP followed suit soon enough and took out
the ProLiant ML370 with plenty of amazing features. This rack based
server packed in the latest technological advancements of that time
along with a sturdy construction and affordable price tag.
Competing directly with the HP ML370 was the PowerEdge 2850 but despite
its promise of delivering a better product by Fall, Dell simply could
not bring out its new offering. In fact, Dell went ahead in saying that
it won't support the Tumwater implementation by Intel as this caused
heating issues on new processors. Odd since, at the price set for the
Nocona processors, it really doesn't matter if it heats up or not and if
it supports a 64 bit processing system.
The Latest Generation
The ML370 from HP is an impressive server that boasts of an awesome
build quality. It packs in a 5U rack mount that has sufficient space to
the front to hold a six disk hot swapable cage and even couple of Ultra
320 72.6GB drives. Unfortunately, the total capacity is a bit lacking in
an attempt to keep the servers looking small.
Thankfully, HP continues
to offer expansion offers on the side with room for about three 5.25
inch devices. Even the power consumption is nominal because of a
distribution board that comes mounted under the motherboard, which also
saves a lot of space. The new generation of the HP ML370 operates on a
single 775 Watt power supply present to the rear but a second one can be
added for extra security.
As for the internal design, things could not
have been any simpler or trustworthy. Every single interface is present
on the front side of the motherboard, as close as possible to devices
they actually service. The cables come next and are neatly hidden under
the front cages.
What will really catch your attention is the array of
three hot-swap fans that handle all the cooling needs of the HP ML370.
This additionally helps decrease the noise levels or the server. To the
right side is a bay with room for another hot-swap fan when needed.
processors are present behind the hard drive bay, covered with a plastic
shroud to compliment the direct airflow. Basically, the new ML370 is a
perfect amalgamation of build quality, design and processing power all
packed into a compact but effective mould.
The entire server's gut is
held down by a single large clamp that can be released quickly using a
side lever after which the top comes off to reveal the processor and
passive heatsinks. Moving on the left bank has 8 DIMM sockets that use
The ML370 in fact comes with a couple of 512MB DDR-400
SDRAM, which makes these much smaller than usual. Since DDR2 memory
depends on FBGA packaging you know that their density can be
indefinitely increased without affecting the size a lot. HP offers
currently 4GB and 8GB modules too but beware compared to latest
generation memory chips these tend to draw in a lot of power and heat.
The HP ML370 might seem like an old server that isn't designed any
longer for today's business needs but think again because this sturdy
yet compact server is quite capable for many small to medium businesses.
To start with the server offers excellent internal expansion abilities
with 4 PCI slots at 100MHz/64-bit and a couple of 4X PCI-E slots.
only downside to all this is that none of the slots actually support hot
swap capability. For the network connection, this HP server uses a
gigabit embedded adapter that also uses the iLO remote management
controller with another embedded 10/100BASETX adapter.
means that the administrator can access the server directly via a web
browser regardless of what condition it is in. Through the iLO one can
keep a close watch over the controller and server status, rest it, power
it on or off, see installed components and emulate many more things.
During normal operations, the Insight Manager from HP provides lots of
information and alerts too. Together with the iLO, the Insight Manager
helps manage an entire array of HP ML370 without any worries. In fact,
it is much easier to maintain these servers and use its expansion
capabilities for meeting future contingencies.
The HP ML370 quite simply speaking boasts of an awesome build quality
and design, probably the best in rack mounted servers at the moment. It
gives a decent combination of performance, specifications, technological
advancements and all this without costing a lot. Now that DDR2 prices
are hitting rock bottom, these servers are definitely more affordable
