HP ProLiant DL360 G7 server review


It's been over 10 years since HP's ProLiant DL360 server was introduced, during which time it's become a firm favourite with corporate buyers looking for a powerful yet compact datacentre platform.

ILO 3 management controller, 'Sea of Sensors' monitoring, up to 384GB RAM, eight hot-swap disks

HP has yet to match Dell's Lifecycle Controller

HP hasn't made any radical changes to the seventh generation of the DL360. Performance and scalability are up, the number of Ethernet ports doubled and there's more storage capacity. The biggest improvements are in energy efficiency and management.

HP ProLiant DL360 G7, classy build quality


HP's new seventh-generation DL360 has unbeatable server monitoring and power management features

You also get power regulation and capping controls in the iLO3 interface. The low power mode throttles back the CPU to its lowest power state, while the high performance mode throws all energy savings to the wind. The dynamic power-saving mode sets...

perfect for rdp services


dual psus and a flash back write cache is awesome. Also redundant fans.

Bought this and have zero regrets. Just add drives and a reseller option kit for server 2008r2. I have 3 300gb drive sin ours and using for terminal server 2008r2 rdp services with Citrix xenapp

Awesome bang for the buck servers!


I bought these for a VMware lab in my office and they were very easy to set up. Price point made it possible to have brand new servers instead of second-hand stuff. Not a bit of trouble. Prefer strongly to other brand whose quality has slipped...

Very good out of the box configuration; still presents tons of options for customization. Can be scaled into a computing MONSTER with 18 RAM slots for future expansion, and low power RAM is an option with 5600-series Xeon processors. Additional socket...

Nitpicking, but... 2'nd PCIe slot seems like it can only take a 1/2 height card. Front bezel not included. Also, for some reason, it's missing a drive blank; only comes with 2 for 4 drive bays on both units I ordered. Would be a very minor issue if,...

This is our 'go-to' server. Brilliant piece of hardware and we have deployed a large number of these things to customer networks without issue, in all sorts of deployments including ESX clusters.

Best 1U server we've owned to date. Replaced all of our 1U Dell and earlier generation HP servers with these just before the G8s came out. Between the slide-out tray lights, excellent features, and resounding reliability, I'm an incredibly happy customer.

Love this server (with the exception that it doesn't have Official Server 2012 support) You can get 12 LFF drives and 8 SFF drives in this server. The SFF drives aren't officially an option with the LFF drives, but it works just fine. Great storage...
