Do you need to increase performance at 10K HDD price points for performance-sensitive and very read optimized workloads?
HPE SATA Very Read Optimized Solid State Drives deliver up to 175X faster performance, 4X lower latencies, and 3X better energy efficiency than 10K HDDs at a comparable price . Designed for very read optimized workloads – vSAN capacity tiers, NoSQL databases, business intelligence, Hadoop, analytics, object stores, content delivery, and AI and machine learning data lakes.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise SSDs are backed by over 3.35 million hours of testing and qualification , certifying reliability and high performance. HPE Digitally Signed Firmware prevents unauthorized access to your data by providing the verification that drive firmware comes from a trusted source. You can also monitor the lifespan of your SSD with HPE Smart WearGauge compatibility in management tools.
The HPE BladeSystem PCI Expansion Blade provides PCI card expansion slots to an adjacent c-Class blade server. This blade expansion unit uses the c-Class midplane to pass standard PCI signals between adjacent enclosure bays, to allow a c-Class blade server to add off-the-shelf PCI-X or PCI-e cards. Customers would need one PCI Expansion Blade for each c-Class server blade needing PCI card expansion. Any PCI card from third-party manufacturers that works in HPE ProLiant ML and HPE ProLiant DL servers should work in this PCI Expansion Blade. HPE does not offer any warranty or support for third-party PCI manufactured products. HPE does joint market with selected PCI manufactures via the HPE BladeSystem Solutions Builder Program.
Looking to reduce energy cost and space with increased performance?
HPE Common Slot Power Supplies share a common electrical and physical design that allows for hot-swap, tool-less installation into HPE server and storage solutions. These power supplies are available in multiple, high-efficiency input and output options, allowing you to "right-size" a power supply for specific server/storage configurations and environments. This flexibility helps to reduce power waste, lower overall energy costs, and avoid "trapped" power capacity in the data center.
The power supplies provide the IT industry’s highest level of power efficiency (up to 96%), helping users to reduce power requirements per server and reducing overall data center power requirements. The Platinum Plus and Titanium power supplies also enable HPE Power Discovery Services which focus on increasing compute density while reducing data center outages.
The Cisco Fabric Extender for HPE BladeSystem (Model B22HP) provides an extension of the Cisco Nexus switch fabric to the HPE server edge. Logically, it behaves like a remote line card to a parent Cisco Nexus 5000 series switch, with the Fabric Extender and the parent Nexus together forming a distributed modular system. The Cisco Fabric Extender for HPE BladeSystem forwards traffic to the parent Cisco Nexus switch over eight 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks.
Low-cost uplink connections up to 10 meters can be made with copper Twin-ax cable, and longer connections up to 100 meters can use optional Fabric Extender Transceivers. Standard 10Gb SFP+ optics are also supported.
Downlinks to each server are auto-negotiating and work with all HPE Ethernet and CNA modules allowing a choice of Ethernet, FCoE or iSCSI connections. Passing all traffic seamlessly to the Nexus 5000 allows traffic to be shaped according to policies established by the Nexus 5000 Series Switch with a single point of management.
