The HP ProLiant BL685c G7 Server Blade delivers scale-up, dense, cost-effective 4-socket performance for high-density virtualization and compute-intensive database environments. With up to 64 cores in a single blade and 32 DDR3 registered DIMM slots offering an impressive 1TB memory footprint, these servers are the ideal choice for the most demanding applications.

Delivering over 80 Gb of I/O bandwidth with four embedded HP NC551i Dual Port 10Gb FlexFabric Converged Network Adapter ports and three I/O expansion slots, this is the ideal 4-socket blade for enterprise data centers that demand cost-effective performance and scalability.

What's new

  • Up to four (4) AMD Opteron™ 6300 Series Processors, with up to 16 cores per CPU, provide new levels of performance and efficiency over the previous generation.


Multicore Scalability—Up to 64 Cores

Up to four 4-, 8-, 12- or 16-core AMD Opteron processors, delivering outstanding compute power for high-density virtualization and compute-intensive database environments

High core count processors enable scaling of VM density for greater consolidation and increased performance with multiple cores per VM for more robust virtualization configurations

Cost Effective with up to 1 TB of Memory and I/O Bandwidth over 80 Gb

Economical blade design, for greater flexibility and lower TCO, reduces the amount of hardware required for the same performance
