HP Proliant DL585 Review:
As opposed to the Opteron 6100 Processors, AMD is a clear winner and
the HP DL585 ProLiant server packs in a powerful processor but that is
not all about it. As opposed to the Gateway and Dell offerings, HP's
server is different for two reasons namely, the height and the
full-width drawer towards the front that holds both, the primary and
secondary daughter boards containing the memory and processors.
The Features That Make Up The HP DL585
To remove the drawer you simply press on the clip present on the top
that then releases a large handle. By locking tabs to the side, this
drawer can be completely slid out without the danger of accidental
Now, both daughter boards are vertically stacked in the HP DL585
with each containing one processor sockets and a total of 24 DIMM slots.
To access the bottom board the top board comes off easily with the help
of two release handles.
HP allocates 12 DIMM sockets to each board or
processor and the AMD chipset used actually can go all the way up to
512GB. Since 16GB DDR3 RDIMMs are expensive and will take only 32 of the
48 available sockets, it is actually better to go with the full house
8GB per socket configuration.
Coming to the front panel, you may think
that the entire drawer space is taken up by the daughter boards but
there are eight SFF hot-swap disk bays packed in as well. You can
customize this configuration based on your requirement with near-line
SAS models although 6Gbits/sec SAS drives are the best.
With 1GB of
flash backed write cache and using the battery backup pack, the HP DL585
can support RAID5, P410i stripes and mirrors as standard and with
appropriate licensing you can even use RAID6.
The horizontal SPI board
in this server actually provides a total of four Gigabit ports to the
backend with an expansion slot free to take in HP's dual port 10 Gigabit
SFP module. This particular server also comes with iLO3 remote
management and pairs of PS/2 ports and USB ports as well.
board offers up two internal USB ports, embedded SD card slot for the
purpose of Virtualization and if need arises you can even add a SATA DVD
drive to the front side. As you can see, this HP server is highly
customizable and can expand as required.
To ensure power redundancy, it
operates with four 1200 Watt hot-plug modules which provides more than
required power for the four 2.1GHz 6172 Opterons that peak at 710W each.
The Verdict As long as price isn't a deciding factor,
the HP DL585 is an excellent choice. While this particular model lacks
the virtualization, remote management and processing density of the Dell
PowerEdge R814, it suits those businesses that need server
consolidation and massive expansion potential without sacrificing on
storage options and remote management.
