The HPE ProLiant BL460c Gen10 Server Blade supports industry standard technology : Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 processors, HPE 2400 MT/s DDR4 SmartMemory and 128 GB DIMMs.

It has internal MicroSD card slot and internal USB3 connector in which USB3 drive can be installed.

You need to use special dongle to provide 2 USB ports and VGA. That's inconvenient. Dell provide them on each blade directly.  Official name is "SUV cable connector".

CAUTION: Before disconnecting the SUV cable from the connector, always squeeze the release buttons on the sides of the connector. Failure to do so can result in damage to the equipment.

You can power off the blade from  CLI. Use the Onboard Administrator CLI to execute one of the following commands:

poweroff server [bay number] 

This command initiates a controlled shutdown of applications and the OS before the server blade enters standby mode.

poweroff server [bay number] force 

Additional support includes tiered storage controller options, internal 12 Gb/s SAS, 20 Gb FlexibleLOMs, support for two M.2, NVMe, or up to four uFF drives, and HPE ProLiant Persistent Memory options.

The HPE ProLiant BL460c Gen10 Server Blade with 16 GB HPE Persistent Memory3, optimized on HPE ProLiant, delivers unprecedented levels of performance and data resiliency for databases and analytic workloads.

Intelligent System Tuning. Jitter smoothing to deliver deterministic and reliable processor frequencies and to improve workload performance when in Intel Turbo Boost Mode. Workload matching to provide optimized and pre-selected server profiles for optimal workload performance.

HPE Integrated Lights-out (iLO) 5.0 software features server lifecycle management advancements including iLO Federation, which remotely manages groups of servers at scale with built-in rapid discovery of all iLOs, group configurations, group health status, and ability to determine iLO licenses.

Security Innovations
