According to the following link, the server is compatible with the NVMe* storage SSDs, just like the Intel® SSD DC P3500 Series. We do suggest you get in touch with HPE* in order to verify this information, based on the two form factor we offer for this model (Add-In Card & 2.5").
Everytime I contact HPE advisor they advise their own branded SSD's. Their own SSD's are 2,5 times more exspansive than the Intel SSD's are. Because I deployed another HP server before with 3th party disks I know 3th party disks are working in the HP server.
