New MicroServer is on it's way


Recommended Posts

I recently bumped into one HP Engineer who told me that new MicroServer is coming. He said that there will be no Gen9 (as we all know by now) but that MicroServer Gen10 is in the works. Box should visually be similar, except that it will be all in black instead of black and silver. Insides will be completely different. He didn't want to go into specifics or the timeline, but he was saying that if i need one now, I should get Gen8 as the price is great. Therefore I can conclude that it won't be released in near short term. It's not much of an info, but it's something. I thought you guys might wanna know :)

Until I see it in the flesh I'll no hold my breath, wouldnt suprise me if, even if it is in the works, that the unit gets cancelled..

I'd stick with the Gen 8. From what I understand, it may be more aligned with the Gen 7 in terms of features (like no iLo perhaps).

Thanks for this pic, I hope this led in the middle will not be eye piercing during the night. I kind of liked it at the bottom.

Doesnt look much different to the Gen8, not that it matters, its the internals that are the important bit..

Hopefully it'll still be socketted CPU, support at least 32Gb RAM, 64Gb would be nice, other than that theres not much that the Gen8 didnt give, dual GB NIC, iLo, SFF...

Be nice if the fans were also standard headers so you can swap the fans out for 3rd party units without having to dick about with rewiring stuff or controllers etc.

The green in the middle is not a led. It's a logo for HPE. Take a look at hpe.com

It is also present in the last batches of the gen8.

I guys, unfortunately the pic included is now altered .. (Probably HPE engineers / marketing guys are reading here)

So anyone checking this thread will not see the old image with the new HP microserver (rendered image with usb ports at the bottom)

The new image shows a device ontop of the grey servers (removed now in the new) and at the right there was a new HP Microserver, also removed now from the site


it was this


see the differences.

I have also another thought .. but that is an bad one: no HP microserver anymore, replaced by the device on top of the grey servers ..

      Hi! I am planning to buy a Microserver Gen10 Plus E-2224 for a small business, and want to add as much disk space as possible. I already have the older Gen10 with 4x4TB HDDs in RAID10 (effective capacity 8TB) and a 2TB SSD in the 5th slot (which is missing on the new G10 plus). The max stated capacity on the HPE site seems to be limited with their own enterprise HDDs, so I'd like to see if I can go for bigger disks. The server would be running a sort of an application which collects lots of data from devices, and the data tends to grow over time (1-2TB per year), and I'd prefer not to worry about the capacity for the next several years.
      My primary concern is the max capacity (max single drive capacity + max total RAID capacity with the Smart Array S100i) I can reliably install. If possible, some actual setup which has been shown to work with 32GB RAM and its limited 180W power supply? I was also planning on upgrading it to 32GB. If I am buying a 16GB RAM server, does this means it has both slots occupied with 8GB modules and I need a 2x32GB kit? For the os SSD, I won't have the PCIe slot available because we need to insert a certain GPS PCIe card that the server uses for time synchronization. So, if I want an SSD, this means I should use something like 1xSSD + 3xHDD in RAID5, instead of RAID10?  
      I've been planning to install 16TB Seagate Exos X16 drives, with rated max operating power at 10W (6.3W for random reads/writes). Does this seam feasible?
      Thanks a lot for your tips!

      Good day all
      i bought a gen 10 x3216 MicroServer and I have been trying to install windows server 2016 on it with a usb and I get it to boot into the usb with the iso on it but I can not get past the one install step where u supposed to select the drive.
      instead it says to download storage drivers and browse to select driver. I have downloaded every single storage driver from the hpe site or is sure does feel like it.
      if I try to select the driver I have to do so manually by unticking show only compatible drivers because if I leave it ticked there is nothing compatible. Iam stumped on what the correct driver is.
      ok so what Iam trying to do isssssss I want to install the os onto the usb that I have attached inside the box the one that is directly coming off the board. Is that a different driver ? 
      In bios/boot up options I can see all usb connected.
      can anyone please help me with this
