Server power cords
High voltage power cord ships standard with all part numbers. Localized cables included with geographic specific models in other world regions.
NOTE: ProLiant DL servers no longer ship standard with NEMA power cords (187335-001) that allow connection to 110 V US wall outlets in a home or office. ProLiant DL servers are primarily connected to Power Distribution Units (PDU's) in data center racks so they now ship standard with only a PDU Power cord (416151-B21). If a user wishes to power a ProLiant DL Server using a 110 V receptacle (NEMA-15), the above NEMA power cord must be ordered separately.

Power supply
HPE has a new common slot power supply bay for ProLiant power. This design provides the end user with commonality in power supplies across multiple platforms to save on the cost of spares and allows HPE to offer multiple power solutions to fit the needs. HPE's new common slot power supplies are designed for highest efficiency to provide power efficiency without degrading performance of the ProLiant. Power supplies will have efficiency ratings up to 92%. There are three right size power options available, depending on the configuration of the server configuration. To make sure correct power supply, use the HPE Power Advisor to decide the Right-Size for the configuration.
Common slot power supply
HPE offers multiple power supply options:
  • 460 W, common slot, 92% efficiency 80PLUS GOLD

  • 750 W, common slot, 92% efficiency 80PLUS GOLD

  • 1200 W, common slot, 90% efficiency 80PLUS SILVER

HPE's ProLiant common slot power supplies (460 W and 750 W) meet multiple energy efficiency initiatives. Climate savers computing initiative GOLD, 80PLUS GOLD and plans on offering models that meet the energy star for server requirements when they are published.
HPE's ProLiant common slot power supplies (1200 W) meet multiple energy efficiency Initiatives. Climate savers computing initiative bronze, 80PLUS SILVER power supply requirements.
System fans
3 fans ship standard in 1 processor models
4 fans ship standard in 2 processor models
N+1 fan redundancy standard
NOTE: The processor option kit contains the additional 2 fans, when upgrading the 1 processor models. A Fan Option kit can also be purchased separately for use with PCI Graphics card upgrades.
Security Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
The TPM is a microcontroller chip that can securely store artifacts used to authenticate the server platform. Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption (BitLocker) is a data protection feature available in Windows Server 2008. BitLocker leverages the enhanced security capabilities of a TPM version 1.2. The TPM works with BitLocker to help protect user data and to ensure that a server running Windows Server 2008 has not been tampered with while the system was offline.
