The ProLiant SL4540 Server has a converged and balanced architecture ideal for Hadoop and scale-out parallel processing applications. For workloads that require a balanced 1:1 spindle to core ratio, the HP ProLiant SL4540 Server 3x45 supports three Intel® Xeon® E5-2400v2 processor-based nodes with up to 45 hot-plug hard drives in just 4.3U with the enterprise-class reliability and manageability of HP ProLiant.


Maximize Storage Capacity and Compute Performance

With the HP ProLiant SL4540 Gen8 Server you have a choice of three compute nodes featuring the Intel® Xeon® E5-2400 product family, in a 4.3U chassis with shared cooling, power and management.

With parallel processing applications such as Hadoop that require a balanced core to spindle ratio, consider the three node configuration with 15 drives for each node.

Scalable performance is achieved with a balanced architecture and HP Smart Array technology that provides flexibility to balance cost and performance across different drive types (SAS, SATA and SSD).

Scale Capacity and Performance at Lower Cost

The 4.3U chassis of the SL4540 Gen8 is capable of storing up to 270TB. With nine chassis in a 42U rack, it can achieve unprecedented server storage capacities of up to 2.43PB.

Two 2.5-inch small form factor (SFF) hard drives in every compute node allows for separate boot/OS drives on a separate controller.

The Converged Infrastructure design achieves energy savings with compute and storage resources sharing power and cooling, while reducing complexity.

Hot-plug server nodes, drives, fans and power supplies make serviceability at every level fast and easy.

Scale Confidently with Built-In Intelligence and Automation of the HP ProLiant Gen8 Servers

HP Smart Array technology innovations include Predictive Rebuild to reduce downtime exposure, improved data retention with Flash Backed Write Cache (FBWC) and increased data protection with advanced data mirroring.

Seamless management of the cluster, server and storage, with integrated remote support. Deploy applications across all servers with a single command. Control and manage your power at the rack level.

HP Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) provides the automated intelligence to maintain complete server control from any location via a web browser or the iLO Mobile App.
