HPE ProLiant ML30 tower servers - affordable entry-level systems that deliver professional performance

When professional server solutions are required for smaller businesses or organisations with a distributed structure of remote locations and branch offices, the purchase of suitable systems can be a major challenge, considering the often limited IT budget. In addition to the computing capacity and reliability required for mission-critical applications, the ability to expand to meet growing needs, as well as ease of installation, administration and maintenance, are often critical factors.
As cost-effective entry-level servers, the ML30 tower models of the ProLiant ML series from HPE (Hewlett Packard Enterprise) are often ideal for running basic applications and services in less complex environments. However, the compact systems can also be configured for more demanding applications such as databases or virtualisation, and offer comprehensive server management and monitoring options with iLO (Integrated Lights-Out).

HPE ProLiant ML30 server generations overview

New generations are released regularly as updated models that differ mainly in terms of supported components. This means that achievable performance typically increases with each new generation as new processors or faster memory are supported. To help you choose the right server and avoid compatibility issues when upgrading with existing components, the manufacturer's technical documentation includes detailed information on supported hardware standards.

ProLiant ML30 Gen9

ProLiant ML30 Gen10

  • Chipset: Intel C246
  • Processor: Intel Xeon E-2200 series with up to 6 cores
  • Memory: DDR4 PC4-2666 RAM modules in 4 DIMM slots
  • Expansion slots: Four PCI Express 3.0 slots

ProLiant ML30 Gen10 Plus

  • Chipset: Intel C256
  • Processor: Intel Xeon E-2300 series with up to 8 cores
  • Memory: DDR4 PC4-3200 RAM modules in 4 DIMM slots
  • Expansion slots: Three PCI-Express 3.0 slots and one PCIe 4.0 slot

Custom configuration options for HPE ProLiant ML30 tower servers

Each generation of ML30 servers has a single processor socket that can accommodate an Intel CPU (central processing unit) from a range of performance classes. These can be high performance Xeon processors or the more affordable Pentium and Core i3 series. These differ in both the number of cores and the clock speed, allowing you to cost-effectively adapt your computing power to your needs. The processor can also access DDR RAM (Random Access Memory) in four DIMM slots (Dual In-line Memory Module) to run memory-intensive applications, with the motherboard supporting different memory speeds and module capacities of the respective memory standards depending on the device generation and CPU model installed. When selecting memory modules, it is important to note that, unlike the larger rack and tower servers, the systems can only accommodate unbuffered RAM modules (UDIMM), which do not have their own register chip. However, the proven ECC (Error Correcting Code) technology is also supported here, enabling the servers to be used for mission-critical applications by detecting and correcting memory errors.

With its compact form factor and efficient cooling, the ProLiant ML30 tower chassis enables deployment in small office environments without the need for a dedicated server room, while still offering extensive expansion options. Different chassis variants with space for either four LFF (Large Form Factor) or eight SFF (Small Form Factor) drives allow storage configurations to be adapted to the requirements of the application. Depending on the RAID controller, SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) and SATA (Serial AT Attachment) hard disks can be used, and the faster SSD (Solid State Drive) models are often compatible alongside conventional HDD (Hard Disk Drive) hard drives. Newer generations of servers also often feature M.2 slots that can be equipped with the particularly compact and fast NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) SSDs.

Various expansion cards, such as network cards, controllers or graphic cards, can also be installed in PCIe slots (PCI Express) for individual adaptation to the existing infrastructure. The chassis supports full-height and full-length cards as well as smaller models, and the slots are based on different revisions of the PCIe interface depending on the device generation. This should be taken into account when selecting a server, for example to take full advantage of the performance potential of PCIe Gen4 expansion cards.
As reliability requirements can also vary depending on the application of a server, the ProLiant ML30 models are available with different power supply options. The base configuration typically includes a single high-efficiency power supply, but this can be replaced with a redundant power supply kit to increase protection against server downtime due to a power supply failure. This also allows a faulty power supply unit (PSU) to be replaced during operation to restore redundancy by supporting hot-plug functionality.
