HP BladeSystem c7000 Enclosure, Single-Phase with Product Details
A BladeSystem c7000 enclosure holds up to 16 server and/or storage blades plus redundant network and storage switches. It includes a shared, multi-terabit high-speed mid-plane for wire-once connectivity of server blades to network and shared storage. Power is delivered through a pooled power backplane that ensures the full capacity of the hot-plug power supplies is available to all blades.
Each c7000 enclosure is built with the following functions:
^^ Up to 16 half-height and/or up to 8 full-height server blades and/or storage blades per enclosure.
^^ Up to 4 different interconnect fabrics (Ethernet, FC, IB, iSCSI, SAS, etc.) supported simultaneously within the enclosure.
^^ Choice of a single-phase or a three-phase power subsystem - for flexibility in connecting to datacenter power.
^^ PARSEC enclosure design - Parallel, redundant and scalable cooling and
^^ Four (4) or Six (6) Active Cool fans as standard. For redundancy and improved power consumption and acoustics; additional Active Cool Fan kits can be added for a maximum of 10 fans
^^ Fully redundant design-redundant interconnections between servers and interconnect modules; a mid-plane with no active components; redundant cooling using hot-plug Active Cool fans; hot-plug power supplies.
^^ Best performance per watt - lower wattage per server blade, in comparison to rack-mounted servers
^^ Full AC redundancy - with no power zones.
^^ Redundant Onboard Administrator management modules (optional active-standby design)
An Onboard Administrator management module is built in to the enclosure with the following functions:
^^ Robust, multiple enclosure setup and control.
^^ Reports asset and inventory information for the devices in the enclosure.
^^ Reports thermal and power information, including real-time actual power usage per server and per enclosure.
^^ Front-mounted Insight Display for easy management within the datacenter.
^^ Integrated access to all server blade iLOs from a single cable.
^^ Provides integrated access to interconnect bay device management ports from the single Onboard Administrator cable.
^^ Single sign-on capability for all devices in the enclosure
^^ Role-based security locally and/or with LDAP directory services.
^^ Provides a wizard-based initial setup process for easy configuration.
A BladeSystem c7000 enclosure provides the following benefits:
^^ With local and remote hardware management integrated across the solution, one full enclosure can be managed as easily as one server.
^^ Scalable: Management and network interconnects extend scalability beyond a single enclosure, allowing resources to be pooled and shared across multiple enclosures.
^^ Investment protection: Accommodates multiple server and network designs in one enclosure.
^^ Lower costs per server, in comparison to rack-mounted servers
^^ Lower power consumption, in comparison to rack-mounted servers
