The HPE ProLiant ML350 Gen9 tower server provides versatility, with the capability to be utilized as either a tower server or rack mounted server. It is equipped with Intel's Xeon E5-2600 v3 and v4 processor family, and has a total of 24 DIMM slots, nine PCIe slots, 1GbE or 10GbE adapters, eight USB ports, and can handle up to four GPU graphics or compute accelerators.
The ML350 is 5U in size and runs on Intel's C610 chipset, enabling it to take advantage of either one or two Xeon E5-2600 v3, or E5-2600 v4 processors with up to 22 cores. The server can support HPE SmartMemory, which boosts throughput by 14%. For storage, the ML350 offers support for 12GB/s serial-attached SCSI (SAS) for additional performance gains. Furthermore, it has nine 3.0 PCIe slots for added graphical performance.
The ML350's memory is built with quad channel DDR4 and can operate at speeds up to 2400MHz. With two E5-2600 v4 processors and 24 slots filled with 128GB Load Reduced (LRDIMM) modules, the system can store up to 3TB of memory. With E5-2600 v3 modules, the system is able to support a maximum of 1.5TB of memory if 64GB LRDIMM modules are used. For the best performance, HPE suggests using HPE Smart Memory, a patented memory design process for top-tier error correction.
