HPE expands its portfolio with the ProLiant DL325 Gen10 server

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced an expansion to its ProLiant Gen10 portfolio with the new single-processor HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 server, based on the AMD EPYC processors, providing dual-processor performance at single-processor economics.

With today’s application and data demands, and single-processor servers having traditionally shipped with low-performance processors, limited memory and I/O, organisations have been forced to purchase a dual-processor server to achieve necessary levels of performance.

With the introduction of the HPE ProLiant DL325, featuring the AMD EPYC architecture, customers can supposedly achieve enterprise-class process, memory and I/O performance, and security without paying for a dual-processor server.

The HPE ProLiant DL325 supposedly delivers up to a 27% lower cost per virtual machine (VM) than the leading dual-processor competitor for virtualisation and sets the bar for single-processor virtualisation performance. 

In addition, with HPE OneView, customers can dramatically speed up many system management tasks, including the deployment of new virtual machines.

The HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 server features the HPE Silicon Root of Trust, a custom embedded security chip that links with essential server firmware and connects with the AMD Secure Processor in the AMD EPYC SoC, improving security by ensuring it does not execute compromised firmware code.

The AMD Secure Processor can validate the HPE firmware before the server is allowed to boot up, bringing a new level of security to support customers, especially in the public sector, financial services and healthcare industries, where data protection is crucial.

HPE has a long-lasting partnership with AMD and has been a lead partner on the design and introduction of the first AMD server processor to the latest generation AMD EPYC processor.

HPE continues to broaden its portfolio of AMD-based servers from HPE Moonshot, HPE ProLiant MicroServer Gen10, HPE Cloudline, and HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 to the newest server with the HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10.

The collaboration between HPE and AMD will supposedly continue, with additional servers planned for the future.

The HPE ProLiant DL325 will start shipping in July. 

The HPE ProLiant DL325 and HPE ProLiant DL385 will be certified as VMware vSAN Ready Nodes.
