HP Announces the BladeSystem BL460c Gen 9

Today HP announced their next 2 socket blade server based on the Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 CPU, the BL460c Gen 9.   Here’s a quick summary of it.

  • UHP Proliant BL460 Gen9p to 2 x Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 (up to 18 cores per CPU).
  • 16 x DDR4 DIMM slots providing up to 512GB of RAM
  • Support for up to 2 x 12Gb/s SAS HDD or SSD

I wish I could provide more information, but unfortunately HP didn’t market this new product beyond this blog post so I don’t have any additional details including when it will be available to order.  As I get them, I’ll update this blog post, so check back in the future.
