How to find the age of HP/Compaq proliant servers


Jan 29, 2012
I need to find a site that provides the age of their server models. Not particular components within the server but the model itself. Such as, how old is a SUN M5000, or a HP 585 G5. I'm not just looking for servers that have reach end of life.

Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

I found this just by Googling but it's neither an HP nor a Compaq.

Google for any model you like and read the reviews from when it came out - they're all still on there somewhere and will be dated around the time of release of the product.

I have an ageing Proliant ML310 here I can hardly give away but some newer models sell on e-Bay for £600 plus..
