HP blade chassis is dense and intense

Tom Henderson | Oct. 14, 2014
If you're looking for the ultimate in computational density, consider the HP C7000 Platinum Blade Server Chassis.

We used VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V Windows 2012 R2, one on each blade that was supplied, as an exercise, and checked to see if each hypervisor's discover process found the items we would supply via changes in the FlexFabric configuration, including IP resources as well as internal Dell Compellent SAN fabric we use. We often had to bury ourselves in technical docs, which are complete but offer few real-world examples, to connect items, but met no obstacles in any of the configuration scenarios we tried.

We thank the personnel of Expedient for their tenacious support of remote-hands work needed to complete test cycles.
