HPE Proliant DL180 Gen10: Specs and Rack Compatibility


The HPE Proliant DL180 Gen10 server is essentially the 2U version of the DL160 Gen10. With extra size, you get an additional more room for storage, a more sophisticated cooling system, an additional CPU and all of the upgradability that comes along with it. 

While it is a very capable server, it could be classified as “entry level” due to its hardware limitations. This will most likely be used by businesses who need to manage and route data.

Universal rails that have a height of 2U and support up to 29 inches of depth will be compatible with the PowerEdge DL180. A benefit of these is the ability to re-use them for different servers or future upgrades. Plus, it’s easy to slide your server in and out of them for maintenance.
