The ProLiant DL385 supports a wide range of operating systems making it suitable for most environments.
HPE iLO 5 monitors servers for ongoing management, service alerting, reporting and remote management to resolve issues quickly and keep your business running from anywhere in the world.
HPE OneView is an automation engine that transforms compute, storage, and networking into software-defined infrastructure to automate tasks and speed business process implementations.
HPE InfoSight provides built-in AI predicts problems before they happen, proactively resolves issues, and continually learns as it analyzes data—making every system smarter and more reliable.
HPE iLO RESTful API feature provides iLO RESTful API extensions to Redfish allowing you to take full advantage of the wide range of value-added API features, and integrate easily with leading orchestration tools.
Silicon Root of Trust is an immutable fingerprint in the iLO silicon. The silicon root of trust validates the lowest level firmware to BIOS and software to ensure a known good state.
Tied into the silicon root of trust is the AMD Secure Processor, a dedicated security processor embedded in the AMD EPYC system on a chip (SoC). The security processor manages secure boot, memory encryption and secure virtualization.
Run Time Firmware Validation validates the iLO and UEFI/BIOS firmware at runtime. Notification and automated recovery is executed on detection of compromised firmware.
If system corruption has been detected Server System Restore will automatically alert iLO Amplifier Pack to initiate and manage the system recovery process, avoiding lasting damage to your business by quickly restoring firmware to the factory settings or the last known authenticated safe setting.
