Improved Platform Value with New Innovations in HP-UX and HPE Storage

Extend mission-critical computing of the HPE Integrity and HP-UX platform with support for the new i6 servers through at least 2025.

Take advantage of recent HP-UX innovations that include - Veritas 6.1 File system support, Online HP-UX vPAR migration, Smart Quorum with Serviceguard and OpenStack® support for efficient data management and high availability.

Decrease IT TCO while boosting I/O workload performance by upgrading to the latest HPE XP7 and HPE 3PAR StoreServ 8000 and 20000 series All Flash storage arrays.

Scales up to Increase Performance

The HPE Integrity BL860c i6 Server Blade includes the HPE Blade Link technology, which enables linear scalability from 2 to 4 to 8-socket server blades to meet your changing business demands.

It supports four embedded HPE Virtual Connect FlexFabric connections for connectivity to both network and storage, which reduces the need for additional I/O mezzanine cards.

It provides 24 dual in-line memory module (DIMM) slots delivering up to 384 GB of DDR3 low-voltage memory with double-chip spare, enabling a large memory footprint for demanding applications with built-in redundancy.

Two disks, with a choice of hot plug Small Form Factor (SFF) serial-attached SCSI (SAS) hard disk drives, or solid state disks (SSD) for increased disk performance.

You can add up to three mezzanine cards to provide support for Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), SAS RAID, or Fibre Channel.

Improves Reliability and Increases Manageability

The HPE Integrity BL860c i6 Server Blade offers the HP-UX 11i v3 providing a proven operating environment delivering one of the industry's most resilient UNIX® platforms so your mission-critical applications are running safely without compromise.

HP-UX vPars dynamically adjust and share resources, and require very little overhead.

HPE Integrity Virtual Machines, included with the Matrix operating environment (OE), offer the benefits of increased resource utilization and flexibility (shared processor and I/O devices), and rapid deployment.

HPE Integrated Lights-Out 3 (iLO 3) remote management provides built-in core management functions to simplify setup, health monitoring, and remote administration. Every HPE Integrity BL860c i6 Server Blade ships with an HPE Integrity iLO 3 Advanced Pack license pre-installed.

Speed up Mission Critical Applications

The HPE Integrity BL860c i6 Server Blade comes in one or two, 4-core and 8-core, Intel Itanium Processor 9700 Series that provides up to 16 cores of computing power for the most demanding mission-critical enterprise workload requirements.

It includes four embedded HPE FlexFabric 10GbE converged network adapter ports that deliver extensive bandwidth for network-intensive applications.

The high-performance HPE Smart Array Controller for hardware RAID 0 and 1 with read-only 512 MB cache accelerates time to rebuild.
