Part of the HP ProCurve ONE Program that enables secure best-in-class applications and services in the ProCurve infrastructure, the HP ProCurve ONE Services zl Module is a x86-based server module that provides two 10-GbE network links into the switch backplane. Coupled with ProCurve-certified services and applications that can take advantage of a switch-targeted API for better performance, this module creates a virtual appliance within a zl switch slot to provide solutions for business needs, such as network security. This services module can be moved to any zl switch in the environment.
^^ ProCurve ONE application support:
is compatible with ProCurve ONE applications; non-ProCurve ONE applications will not run on the services module, which prevents rogue applications in mission-critical network environments
^^ ProCurve ONE applications preinstalled In downloadable form:
ProCurve ONE applications come with their own OS (which may vary depending on the specific application) and are already installed on the OS as part of the application download; as a result, installation of the application on the services module is a straightforward and simple process, avoiding complicated installations into the OS that are typical of other downloaded application environments
^^ ProCurve ONE API assistance:
ProCurve ONE applications can get switch software and ASIC assistance through programmatic calls to the ProCurve ONE API; additional performance, configuration, and management assistance will be available to these applications over time
^^ Two 10-GbE connections to the switch:
two 10-GbE wire-speed internal connections help ensure that the network connections from application to switch backplane will not limit the performance of the application
^^ USB port:
one external USB 2.0 port is available for application use--for example, external hard drives or other forms of mass storage
^^ High-performance network bandwidth:
Two internal wire-speed 10-GbE ports to the switch backplane.
^^ High-performance processor system:
An Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 Processor with 2.2 GHz, 4 MB cache provides a high-performance compute environment in a small footprint--a single switch slot.
^^ Memory subsystems:
4 GB of DDR2-667 dual-channel memory provide for quick application performance.
^^ Disk drive:
250 GB SATA II 7200 rpm hard disk drive (210 GB application space plus 40 GB diagnostic/maintenance space) allows quick data read/writes to speed applications along.
Resiliency and high availability
^^ Redundant power supplies:
The services module has the same level of power supply redundancy as the switch in which it is installed.
^^ Redundant network connections:
Two internal 10-GbE connections are provided between the switch and the services module; applications can take advantage of both links to provide a redundant network connection to the switch backplane.
^^ Signed/Licensed applications only:
Only ProCurve ONE Applications, which are signed and licensed through ProCurve and the application provider, can run on the services module.
^^ Applications are certified:
ProCurve ONE applications go through certification testing against negative switch effects through API calls or malicious behavior – providing reasonable assurance that applications are well-behaved in the switch and network environment.
^^ Console port:
application console is available as a pass-through to the switch console function
Ease of use
^^ Locator LED:
allows users to set the locator LED on a specific module to either turn on, blink, or turn off; simplifies troubleshooting by making it easy to locate a specific module among other identical or similar modules

(Maximum power rating is the worst-case theoretical maximum power number with fully loaded PoE, 100% traffic, all ports plugged in, and all modules populated.)
command-line interface; Module CLI available through the switch CLI. Applications running on the services module may have additional access and management methods.
^^ The services module can only be used with certified OA services applications. It does not support a general application environment.
^^ Chassis operating temperature specifications of the 5400 chassis when the services module is installed:
- 40°C when any services module is installed in the right side of the chassis
- 50°C when all services modules are installed in the left side of the chassis
^^ Up to four services modules can be installed in a 5400/8200 chassis simultaneously. Up to three services modules are supported (all installed in the left side of the chassis) in the 5406 chassis if a 50°C temperature specification is desired.
^^ When the services module is installed, the maximum relative humidity for the switch drops from 95% to 90%.
