HPE Proliant DL560 Gen10: Specs and Rack Compatibility


HPE’s ProLiant DL560 Gen10 is as powerful as the 4U DL8510 Gen10 with the exception that storage is cut in half to reduce the chassis size. With four Intel XEON Scalable processors, it is capable of mission critical work and designed for the most intensive users.  

Because this was the first 2U, four Scalable processor server to market, critics were enthusiastic about its performance against competition. It provides an excellent expandability proposition that will likely satisfy customers for years to come.
