: ProLiant DL560 G1"> Executive Summary: ProLiant DL560 G1
HPs latest four-way Xeon server has the best processor density in its class and offers excellent scalability with a small 2U footprint. The ProLiant DL560 will be a good choice for data center environments that demand a high-performance system to tackle midtier applications while saving space and power.
Like its competitors, the ProLiant DL560 has a competitive starting price of $7,099 and significant scaling capabilities. But scaling up to four Xeon MP processors and 12GB of memory in a fully loaded box can increase costs significantly ($60,000 plus). (+) Best processor density in its class; chassis is easily serviced; highly scalable. (-) Limited internal storage. Evaluation Short List
