Combine the right mix of traditional IT, private cloud, and public cloud to achieve optimal workload placement.
Does your data center need a blade server that can accelerate mission-critical IT effectiveness? The HPE Integrity BL870c i4 Server Blade is a four-socket full-height blade featuring the latest Intel® Itanium® processor 9500 Series supported by up to 768 GB memory (48 DIMM slots) and features eight FlexFabric Converged Network Adapter (CNA) ports standard. The HPE Integrity BL870c i4 also features the unique HPE Blade Link technology which combines multiple blades to create 2, 4 and 8 socket systems, providing greater scalability and flexibility. HPE nPartitions (nPars) provide one to two electronically isolated hard partitions for each HPE Integrity BL870c i4 Server Blade, to boost system availability. The HPE Integrity BL870c i4 Server Blades can coexist with both HPE ProLiant Server Blades and HPE Storage Blades within the HPE BladeSystem c-Class Enclosure.
Speed up Mission-critical Applications
The HPE Integrity BL870c i4 Server Blade comes in two to four, 4-core and 8-core, Intel Itanium Processor 9500 Series that provide up to 32 cores of computing power for the most demanding mission-critical workload requirements.
Eight embedded HPE FlexFabric 10 Gb converged network adapter ports that deliver extensive bandwidth for network-intensive applications.
High-performance HPE Smart Array controller for hardware RAID 0 and 1 with read-only 512 MB cache that accelerates time to rebuild.
Scale up to Increase Performance
The HPE Integrity BL870c i4 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.
Eight embedded HPE Virtual Connect FlexFabric connections for connectivity to both network and storage, which reduces the need for additional I/O mezzanine cards.
48 dual in-line memory module (DIMM) slots providing up to 768 GB of DDR3 low-voltage memory with double-chip spare, enabling a large memory footprint for demanding applications.
Four disks, with a choice of hot plug small form factor (SFF) serial-attached SCSI (SAS) hard disk drives, or solid state disks (SSD).
Optionally, you can add up to six mezzanine cards to provide support for Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), SAS RAID, Fibre Channel, and others.
Improve Reliability and Increase Manageability
One or two electronically isolated HPE nPars for each HPE Integrity BL870c i4 Server Blade, to boost system availability.
HP-UX 11i v3 provides a proven operating environment delivering the industry's most resilient UNIX platform so your mission-critical applications are running and secure without compromise.
HP-UX vPars that dynamically adjust and share resources, and require very little overhead.
HPE Integrity Virtual Machines, included with the Matrix OE, that offer the benefits of increased resource utilization and flexibility (shared processor and I/O devices), and rapid deployment.
HPE Integrity 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 BL870c i4 Server Blade ships with an HPE Integrity iLO 3 Advanced Pack license preinstalled.
