HP ProLiant BL460c Server Blade
The way businesses select servers is changing. It's no
longer about enclosures and server devices—it's about
how everything fits together and how it integrates into
your existing infrastructure. The functionality of today's
datacenter is constrained by the form of the building
blocks used and the processes required to manage them.
Is your datacenter inflexible, static and hardwired? Is it
tied to manual tasks, maxing out people and processes?
Is it over-provisioned, wasting power, cooling, space,
staff and already limited budget resources? Does it require
management and monitoring 24x7?
HP has the solutions you need to make your datacenter
flexible, automated, effectively provisioned and consistent
while using fewer resources and lowering your TCO.
HP server blades are designed to simplify the "racked,
stacked and wired world."
With features equal to standard 1U rack-mount servers,
the two-processor, dual-core or quad-core BL460c
combines power-efficient compute power, and high
density with expanded memory and I/O for maximum
performance. The BladeSystem c7000 enclosure supports
up to 16 BL460c server blades, two more servers than the
IBM BladeCenter and each BL460c supports double
the memory capacity of the HS21 server without an
expansion blade. Now with quad-core and dual-core
processors, DDR2 fully buffered DIMMs,
Serial Attached SCSi (SAS) or Serial ATA (SATA) hard
drives, support of multifunction NICs and multiple I/O
cards, the BL460c provides a performance system
ideal for the full range of scale-out applications. In this
small form factor, the BL460c includes more features to
enable high-availability, such as hot plug hard drives,
mirrored-memory, online spare memory, memory
interleaving, embedded RAID capability and enhanced
remote Lights-Out management.
