Cloud Ninjas' HP ProLiant DL180 G6 Tips
The DL180 G6 is the 2U brother of the DL180 G6 offering a versatile package to handle a numerous applications. This system was designed for companies in need of Scale Out Computing or High Performance Computing. HP’s ProLiant DL180 G6 is great for running Web 2.0, databases, collaboration or virtualization. If your company needs an everyday server to manage daily tasks such as File, Print or Storage, then the DL180 G6 is an outstanding option to consider.
This 2U server is beast when speaking about internal storage. There are two chassis options, the 14Bay and the 25Bay. With 14 Hard Drive Bays, the DL180 G6 takes the LFF 3.5in Hard Drives with maximum internal storage of 28TB (2TB x 14). The 25Bay chassis runs the SFF 2.5in Hard Drives and supports up to 15TB of SAS (25 x 600GB SAS) or 12.5TB of SATA (25 x 500GB SATA). Similar to the DL160 G6, the chassis supporting 3.5in (LFF) drives actually provides more internal storage with less upfront cost. For this reason, we recommend filling the 14Bay option with 2 TBs to max out at 28TBs. Why spend extra money on the 25Bay? Save a few dollars.
Similar to most of HP’s 6th Generation Server Line, the ProLiant DL180 G6 runs on Intel Nehalem and Westmere CPUs, which are powered by Hyper-Threading Technology. With this system, HP took advantage of Intel’s quick receiving the most out of the 12 DIMM Slots. Really you cannot go wrong when you pop in two Intel 5500 or 5600 CPUs. However, Cloud Ninjas highly recommends either the max configuration (2 x X5675) or take advantage of the value configuration (2 x E5620).
HP’s DL180 G6 has 12 DIMM Slots which is less than its 1U little brother, DL160 G6, which supports 18 DIMM Slots. You can run 6 DIMMs per CPU and will need 2 CPUs to support all 12 DIMM Slots. With the DL180 G6, it is your choice of UDIMM or RDIMM. The Unbuffered DIMMs are more energy efficient but allow for less overall RAM. The Registered DDR3 DIMMs will support up to a whooping 192GB (12 x 16GB). Whereas, Unbuffered DIMMs can only support up to 48GB (12 x 4GB). We recommend buying UDIMMs if you do not need or foresee needing more than 48GB. The Unbuffered DIMMs are less expensive and consume less power. If you foresee needing more the 48GB, then make sure you buy Registered DIMMs so you have scalability options in future.
HP ProLiant DL180 G6 Memory Configuration
The DL180 G6 is a Dual Processor system with 6 DIMM slots per CPU. There are three memory channels per CPU. Each memory channel manages two DIMM slots. Along with standard RDIMMs and UDIMMs, the DL180 G6 also supports options for standard or low voltage. You cannot mix different memory types. Different speeds can be mixed but the modules will function at the slowest speed installed.
Cloud Ninjas' HP DL180 G6 Memory Upgrade Tips
- There are a total of 12 DIMM slots on the HP DL180 G6 server.
- Sizes supported: 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, or 32GB ECC Registered (RDIMM); and 2GB, 4GB or 8GB Unbuffered (UDIMMs).
- DO NOT MIX DIFFERENT MEMORY TYPES.
- The DL180 G6 maxes out at 384GB of ECC Registered memory (12 x 32GB). Whereas unbuffered tops out at 128GB (16 x 8GB).
- The speeds supported are 1066 to 1866 Mhz.
- When purchasing new memory it is best to purchase identical memory modules to what your system already has. Your current server configuration will determine the supported DIMM type and speed.
- Think Long Term! Purchase the maximum amount that your ProLiant DL180 G6 can hold and avoid wasting time and money on modules you won't be able to use if you upgrade again.
- The total number of memory modules that you should have in your ProLiant DL180 G6 should equal 2, 3, 6, or 12. To properly configure your system, install a minimum of two memory modules first.
