HP ProLiant ML110 G3

HPs economically priced proliant ML110 G3 is a good server option for organizations that want the biggest bang for the buck. The G3 version of the server just became available earlier this month and is priced starting at $1,008. The ProLiant ML110 G3 includes a 2.53GHz/533MHz Intel Corp. Celeron processor, 512MB of DDR2 (double data rate 2) memory and a 36.4GB hard drive.

The ProLiant ML110 G3 we tested, which was the first Intel-based dual-core server weve seen, sported a 3GHz Intel dual-core Pentium D processor with 2MB of Level 2 cache and an 800MHz front-side bus, 512MB of RAM, and a 36.4GB Ultra320 SCSI 15,000-rpm non-hot-plug hard drive. The ML110 G3 test unit was also armed with four USB ports and dual NICs and was running Microsoft Corp.s Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition Service Pack 1.

This entry-level server supports a maximum of three hard drives, four memory slots, four I/O slots and six USB ports. The 4U (7-inch) chassis is a nice fit for organizations that want the look and size of a desktop, with the processing capabilities and expandability of a server.

For organizations that want to take advantage of dual-core processing power while keeping an eye on costs, the entry-level ProLiant ML110 G3 server fits the bill.
