HPE Lab Environment

I have created this page to spread my findings in working with HPE-servers in my computer-lab.


Below you will find my list of drives (HDD and SSD) that i have test in my HPEs. Drives that do cause “Thermal Runaway” (fan goes to max speed) are marked with read in the list.

Below is a list of drives that will work in HP servers:
