HP BladeSystem: A smarter way to build an infrastructure
For 40 years, infrastructures were built the same way . Lots of boxes, connected with lots of wires, maintained by lots of people . Universally, whether the infrastructure is large or small, four infrastructure problems emerge: • Cost: High cost to buy, even higher costs to run and maintain • Time: Low productivity, downtime, and slow reaction to new opportunities • Change: Inflexible and hard-wired systems with complex processes and multiple people involved • Energy: Inefficient, power-hungry systems that create rising electricity costs and air conditioning bills The HP BladeSystem addresses these challenges by consolidating everything you need in an IT infrastructure from the start, before it grows out of control . Your technology infrastructure needs are as unique as your business . We know there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution . That is why HP gives you choices to put blades to work for your business from the desktop to the data center . We don’t believe you should compromise the trusted technologies just to gain the advantages of blades . That is why HP BladeSystem components have the same features as the server, storage, and network components you rely on today, only repackaged into a simplified, more cost-effective design . The biggest difference between blade architectures and those based on traditional servers is how they are built and managed . We make sure you can run the same applications and operating systems you want today and tomorrow—connect with everything in your environment now and never sacrifice on performance, reliability, or efficiency .

a choice of the most popular networking brands and standards, including Ethernet, Fibre Channel, direct connect SAS, and InfiniBand . We build in the networking to help you decrease the number of cables by up to 94 percent .1 We add a smarter power and cooling system to help you save more than 47 percent on power compared to traditional rack infrastructures without sacrificing features or performance, as well as integrated system management tools that can speed server administration—reducing deployment times by up to 50 percent . And we include an interface and software that help you at every step—so one person can do the job of many, with less effort . And when you are ready, our worldwide community of business technology experts and partners are here to help you build the ideal solution and support plan that is just right for you . We integrate the infrastructure essentials inside the BladeSystem so that before it ever arrives at your door, we do a lot of the hard work that you would have had to do on your own to deliver the best business results . These eight easy steps are what you need to consider when building your ideal BladeSystem infrastructure solution . Step 1: Choose your operating environment . Step 2: Choose your server blades . Step 3: Choose your storage infrastructure . Step 4: Choose your interconnects . Step 5: Choose your BladeSystem enclosure . Step 6: Choose your infrastructure management software . Step 7: Choose your power and cooling configurations . Step 8: Choose your services .

HP offers a complete portfolio to help you build the perfect infrastructure for your business .

system administrators can constrain the most BTUs per enclosure and rack to enable the enclosure to fit in an existing rack power envelope . AMD x86. Because this power design has no zones. therefore. which future-proofs the enclosure for higher power requirements. Server blades get more cooling airflow where it is needed most and use less power than traditional rack servers . it facilitates both N+N and N+1 power modes. This technology provides the ability to optimize airflow.hp. HP Thermal Logic technologies make it possible to extend the life of your data center by finding untapped resources and reclaiming them . If the enclosure’s thermal load increases. money savings . the Onboard Administrator’s Thermal Logic feature instructs the fan controllers to increase fan speeds to accommodate the additional demand . It is often said that you cannot control what you cannot measure . It improves power supply efficiency to provide real customer power savings and.Step 7: Choose your power and cooling configurations Save power every second with power configurations and redundancy levels to suit your needs . This feature improves server energy efficiency by giving CPUs full power for applications when they need it and reducing power when they do not . Even better. Power workload balancing improves performance per watt used and uses the HP Power Regulator technology to manage power at the enclosure level. HP Thermal Logic capabilities Active Cool fans Parallel redundant scalable enclosure cooling (PARSEC) design Instant thermal monitoring Both high airflow and high pressure are delivered in a small size that can scale to meet future cooling needs .

Power pooled for true N+N power redundancy Dynamic power saver mode Power regulator Power workload balancing Add Dynamic Power Capping Do you ever wonder how you are going to deploy more servers in a data center that is running out of power or cooling? The heat is on for you to deliver reduced costs while being held accountable to staying environmentally friendly . without a delay for a polling cycle . Using power caps. reduce power draw. providing increased flexibility when configuring the power in the system so that customers can choose what level of redundancy with which to operate . All the power in the enclosure is provided as a single pool that any blade can access. The power regulator provides Integrated Lights-Out-controlled speed stepping for Intel x86. A real-time view of heat. And you can now do both using HP Thermal Logic technology. Onboard Administrator monitors the thermal conditions on the hardware in real time. HP Thermal Logic technology makes it a reality . the total enclosure power consumption is monitored in real time and automatically adjusted with changes in demand . which combines energy-efficient design with accurate measurement and control without sacrificing performance . If you are running different blades in your data center. you can optimize them as well .
