HPE Superdome Flex 280 Server
Are you looking to equip your small to midsize enterprise environment with the performance, reliability, and security needed for the most demanding workloads?
The HPE Superdome Flex 280 is a highly scalable and reliable server that starts at two and scales up to eight 3rd generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors. Its modular architecture scales cost-efficiently to meet future growth. Six UPI links per processor means higher bandwidth and faster data rates than prior generations . Designed to provide 64 GB to 24 TB of shared memory using DRAM or in combination with persistent memory, it is an ideal choice for real-time analytics. Extreme Superdome RAS features including advanced memory resiliency, “firmware first” approach, analysis engine, and self-healing provide increased system uptime. Superior security protects your workloads against firmware attacks and malware, and support for HPE GreenLake provides flexible as-a-service consumption while maintaining on-premises control.
Meet Evolving Business Demands with Optimum Flexibility
HPE Superdome Flex 280 server utilizes a modular 5U 2 or 4 socket building block. It scales cost-efficiently from 2 to 8 sockets to meet future growth.
Leverage a choice of either economical Gold or high-end Platinum 3rd generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors to deliver 16 to 224 powerful compute cores in a single system.
As-a-service option with HPE GreenLake provides consumption flexibility while maintaining on-premises control.
Simplify management with a comprehensive framework that includes HPE OneView management, OpenStack, Redfish APIs, and an easy-to-use management GUI.
Process and Analyze Growing Data at Extraordinary Speed
HPE Superdome Flex 280 server modular architecture features six UPI links per processor and delivers higher bandwidth and faster data rates  than prior generations, resulting in high performance for the most demanding workloads.
Designed to provide 64 GB to 24 TB of shared memory using DRAM only or in combination with Intel® Optane Persistent Memory 200 series for HPE, HPE Superdome Flex 280 server is ideal for in-memory analytics
Address large data volumes and network connectivity with a balanced I/O system supporting up to 32 PCIe 3.0 cards with choice of 16-slot (all low profile) or 12-slot (FH/FW). The server supports up to 20 SAS/SATA/NVMe drives with RAID and hardware encryption, plus an optional DVD.
Safeguard Mission-Critical Workloads
The HPE Superdome Flex 280 server features a comprehensive set of RAS capabilities to deliver the highest service levels for mission critical applications.
Contain errors at the firmware level, including memory errors, before any interruption can occur at the operating system layer with the HPE firmware-first approach.
Reduce human error with the proven fault-handling analysis engine, which predicts hardware faults and initiates self-repair without operator assistance.
Reduce exposure to threats and protect against firmware attacks and malware with superior security capabilities, including silicon root of trust.
Deliver business continuity for Linux® workloads with HPE Serviceguard for Linux (SGLX) high availability and disaster recovery clustering solution. It protects from a multitude of infrastructure and application faults across physical or virtual environments over any distance.
 The 3rd-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor architecture has six UPI links, twice than the 2nd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor architecture. Maximum data rate is 3200 MT/s @ 1 DPC, 9% higher than with 2nd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors.
