HP ProLiant XL220a Gen8 v2 Server
HP ProLiant XL200 Servers

When you’re running workloads at scale, it’s all about the combination of performance and efficiency cost, space and energy efficiency delivered with hot-swap and management ease. The HP ProLiant XL220a Server delivers 4x better performance per dollar per watt[1] than the closest competing blade in 60% less space[2] for EDA workloads. Run up to 20 of these hot-swap 2 x 1P servers in an HP Apollo 6000 System, 160 in a standard 48U rack with rear cabling for cold aisle serviceability.

Rack scale power efficiency is fueled by an external power shelf, with easy Advanced Power Management for rack, chassis, server and component level management.

Key Features

Density Performance

The ProLiant XL220a Server has 2 x 1P (single-socket) nodes per server, up to 20/chassis for a density optimized solution.

Each node delivers value for performance with Intel® Xeon® E3-1200 series processors, 4 DDR3 DIMMs, 32GB max, with up to 2 SFF hot plug HDD or SSDs.

The HP Apollo a6000 Chassis Innovation Zone holds up to 10 I/O modules, with dual FlexibleLOMs supporting 1GbE, or 10GbE to help lower your solution TCO

Cost, Space, Energy Efficiency

The ProLiant XL220a Server makes the most of cost effective scale-out infrastructure with shared power and cooling to reduce TCO.

The system achieves 4x more performance per dollar per watt in 60% less space than competing blade.

Efficiency at rack scale is fueled by HP’s unique external power shelf, delivered with HP Advanced Power Manager to dynamically allocate power to help maximize rack level energy efficiency while providing the right amount of redundancy for your workloads.

Density Optimized, Rack Scale

Get rack scale density with 160 servers per standard 48U rack, 20 servers in the HP Apollo a6000 Chassis.

HP ProLiant XL220a Servers share HP Apollo a6000 Chassis, power and cooling for space and energy efficiency. This modular building block includes a variety of networking I/O module options for future proofing.
