DRAM memory for your HP ProLiant Server series can be reliable and finding it does not have to be a major challenge. When you choose HP Smart Memory you get the same high quality, reliability, and confidence that come with your HP ProLiant Gen 9 Server series. DRAM quality and reliability are more important now than ever. Higher capacity memory with greater reliability and up time are increasingly needed due to industry trends such as server virtualization, cloud computing, the use of large database applications, and high-performance computing. HP Smart Memory is a unique technology introduced in HP ProLiant Gen 8 Servers that unlocks certain features available only with HP Qualified Server memory in Gen 9 servers also. HP Smart Memory enables ProLiant Gen 9 systems to reliably identify and verify whether installed memory has passed the rigorous HP qualification and testing processes. And because the memory is authenticated, you can enable extended memory performance features through the system ROM.
