I have an HP ProLiant ML350 server and there's this connection that I really can't identify and I need to know what it is.
Can anyone tell me what this?

check the device manager to see what it might be, inspect the card to see if there are any model numbers on it and google them, it looks like a high speed uplink port for network switch fabrics, but not 100% sure.

that was my first thought given pin density, but i've never seen one so didn't say anything. Looking at the flyer about it, its not listed.

Its not a Smart Array 642, got one of them in a server, I'd deffo google all the tags and numbers on the card to find out.

Looks like an InfiniBand connector to me, either that or 10 Gbit Ethernet (10G-BaseCX4) connector. I'd guess Infiniband since most 10 Gbit stuff is optical right now and has a much different (square) connector.
