These are both HP's ProLiant series of small and medium servers, which
are the ex-Compaq ones.  Under the prior Compaq branding prior to the HP
acquisition, these would have been offered under the 'Netserver' brand.

The 'DL' series of ProLiants are & were the general-purpose rackmount servers.

Both 'HP ProLiant DL140' and 'HP ProLiant DL360' refer not to a specific
product but rather to a series of very diverse products, released over
many years.   Without the additional qualifier of 'Generation [N]' or
'G[N]' for some value of N, you don't know whether you're getting a
2002-era Pentium III 1U or a modern machine.

Not intending to look a gift horse in the mouth (and much happiness to
anyone who adopts these), but the generation matters a _lot_.
