HPE ProLiant DL160 Gen9 Server

Right-size performance, storage for space-constrained environments


Addresses the business needs of SMBs


Even though budgetary pressures force small-to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to

do more with fewer resources, many companies continue to look for new ways to grow their businesses and remain competitive in today’s evolving business environment. To meet those goals, SMBs need an IT infrastructure that is quick to set up and easy to maintain. They also need scalable solutions that can grow right along with their businesses. Ideally, they want “everything IT” converged into a single platform.


SMBs can get what they need with the HPE ProLiant DL160 Gen9 Server—a fully integrated platform designed to perform and scale. Offering standard HPE Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) capabilities for simplified IT infrastructure management, 16 slots for DDR4 memory, eight drives, and two standard NIC ports, HPE ProLiant DL160 Gen9 Server offers the ideal set of features for meeting SMBs’ everyday business needs. And with the DL160 Gen9 Servers’ built-in virtualization features, server, and storage utilization increases, and IT infrastructure runs more efficiently at a lower cost. HPE ProLiant DL160 Gen9 Server enables SMBs to start small, and scale easily and cost-effectively, as their businesses grow.



Meets the requirements of service providers


Faced with an ever-growing customer base, service providers need an agile IT infrastructure that scales readily and consumes minimal space and energy. And to support today’s mega data-centric trends—Big Data and cloud computing—service providers need to optimize their IT environments and move to a distributed computing model where servers are deployed as compute nodes, network nodes, and database nodes.


With 16 DIMM slots, 92 percent efficient power supply, ASHRAE A3/A41 compliance (for higher ambient temperature support), dense 2P/1U design, and optional FlexibleLOM capability, the ProLiant DL160 Gen9 Server enables service providers to minimize the operational costs of energy and space—making it a perfect match for today’s hyperscale environments.
