The total economic impact of HP BladeSystem
Forrester Research asked customers why they chose HP BladeSystem. Top responses included greater reliability, flexibility, scalability, and improved productivity — all leading to lower total costs. Customers look to blades for improved data center economics that help drive to a better return on investment.

Blades versus traditional rack servers
Compared with rack servers, customers have discovered that blade servers simplify data center operations. Traditional infrastructure cannot deliver the density, shared resources, scalability, and overall efficiency of blades, which can reduce your data center costs by up to 68% and downtime by as much as 90%.

HP BladeSystem enclosure
Blades share power, cooling, network, and storage infrastructure via the blade enclosure. Since equipment is not needed for each server, you get a dramatic reduction in power distribution units, power cables, LAN and SAN switches, connectors, adapters, and cables. And you can add the newest-generation technologies by simply changing individual components.
• Reduce data center power and cooling cost up to 36%
• Up to 50% less space compared to rack servers

Larger data centers with more dynamic data center environments; mainstream/mid-sized data centers; High Performance Computing
The BladeSystem c7000 enclosure provides all the power, cooling, and I/O infrastructure needed to support modular server, interconnect, and storage components today and throughout the next several years. The enclosure is 10U high and holds up to 16 server and/or storage blades plus optional redundant network and storage interconnect modules.

It includes a shared 7.1 Tbps high-speed NonStop mid-plane for wire-once connectivity of server blades to network and shared storage. Power is delivered through a pooled-power backplane, and power input flexibility is provided with choices of single-phase AC input, 3-phase AC input, -48V DC input, and high voltage DC input.

What’s new
• Universal high voltage power solution for reduced Datacenter CAPEX & OPEX – 2650W power supply with a wide ranging input supporting 277VAC & 380VDC – Power input module with APP Saf-D-Grid connectors
Extending the foundation for Converged Infrastructure
The HP BladeSystem c7000 Enclosure goes beyond just Blade servers. It consolidates server, storage, networking and power management into a single solution that can be managed as a unified environment.
With demanding workloads, the increased power supply wattage and mid-plane bandwidth aligned with Intelligent Infrastructure technologies such as Platinum Power Supplies, Intelligent Power Module, and Location Discovery Services have enhanced the foundation for converged infrastructure.

HP OneView combines server, storage, and networking with control of your data center environment into a single, integrated management platform architected to deliver lifecycle management for the complete Converged Infrastructure.
With Onboard Administrator, iLO remote management, and HP OneView you can manage your servers and take complete control regardless of the state of the server operating system.
