Has there anybody an idea if INTEL DC P3600/3700 will work ink HP Z640 workstations?
The HP we are focused are 640 with one or two INTEL XEON E5-2620v3. The machines work with HP Zdrive which is a PCIe NVME SSD on PCIe2 Slot, but these SSDs are only available in 256 or 512 GB, which is not enough. We think that INTELS direkt I/O with XEON can make some programs faster.
The Intel® Solid-State Drive Data Center Family for PCIe* are compliant with international IT standards. There are some requirements the computer must have in order to use them as data drives, or to boot from them.
We advise you to confirm with http://www8.hp.com/us/en/support.html HP support if your system meets the requirements to work with the Intel® Solid-State Drive Data Center Family for PCIe*, and to check for any compatibility implications with PCIe NVMe devices.
- PCIe* Gen3 x4 compatible connector (Form Factor: SFF-8639 or HHHL x4)
- UEFI* 2.3.1 or later
- Supported Operating System and NVMe driver.
*Additional configuration may be required to use these SSD's as boot drives.
