1 x Hitachi Interconnector Module Compute Blade 500 (CB 500) delivers top computing power and performance, as well as unprecedented scalability and configuration flexibility with the latest Intel Xeon E5v2 and E7v2 family processors. It extends the benefits of Hitachi logical partitioning to new areas of the enterprise data center and includes a choice of integrated switched-fabric networking options.
Scale Up to 8 SocketsThe CB520X blade, powered by up to 2 Intel E7v2 series processors, supports Hitachi multiblade SMP interconnect technology. It enables you to scale up to 4 connected CB520X blades to achieve a single 8-socket SMP system with 192 memory DIMM slots. CB520X blades can be combined in 2 or 4 blade configurations, and can grow incrementally by simply adding blades. In this way, compute, memory and I/O capacity scale together, to support large workloads and high memory capacity needs.
Rapid DeploymentA dedicated LCD control panel and simplified USB-enabled configuration setup allow fast implementation and accelerated time-to-value for your application. Simple, tool-free access speeds configuration, setup or upgrades, and allows optional customer replacement of critical modules for lower service cost for basic maintenance.
Flexible, Scalable NetworkingHitachi Compute Blade 500 provides a wide range of network connectivity options, including high-speed integrated fabric switching, futureproof shared access to high-speed IP networking, Fibre Channel and converged switched-fabric architectures. Connect to almost any network infrastructure to reduce cabling and complexity within your data center.
Secure Logical PartitionsThe Hitachi Compute Blade 500 logical partitioning feature, LPAR, is embedded in CB 500 server blade firmware. The combination of Hitachi expertise with Intel virtualization technologies improves performance, reliability and security. Support for 4 logical partitions per blade is included with the system, and may be expanded to allow for configuration of up to 30 logical partitions per blade. Use the embedded logical partitioning feature or Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware, or all 3 in a single chassis.
Unprecedented AdaptabilityHitachi Compute Blade 500 elegantly integrates network, I/O and server resources into a single, space-efficient, flexible solution. The rack-mountable 6U chassis houses up to 8 server blade modules. For I/O versatility, there are 4 bays for internal network switches, and dedicated storage expansion blades allow high-capacity onboard high-density disk (HDD) or SSD storage to be supported. With sophisticated, built-in reliability, availability and serviceability features, Hitachi Compute Blade 500 is an ideal data center platform for consolidation of mission-critical applications, virtualization and cloud computing applications.
