Hitachi Compute Blade 500 (CB 500) delivers top computing power and performance, as well as unprecedented scalability and configuration flexibility with the latest Intel Xeon processor E5 Series. 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.
Standard and double-width blade models are available with up to 2 CPUs in each standard-width blade, and 4 CPUs in each double-width blade. The CB520H blade features the E5-2600 processor and supports 24 slots for high-speed, DDR3-registered ECC memory DIMMs. Each blade allows up to 512GB of shared memory to be installed, as well as up to 2 hot-pluggable, front-side-accessible serial-attached SCSI (SAS) or solid-state disk (SSD) drives, with hardware RAID. The CB520A blade is powered by the E5-2400 processor and supports 12 DIMM slots. The double-width CB540A blade uses E5-4600 processors with 48 DIMM slots per blade.
Rapid Deployment
A 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 Networking
Hitachi 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 Partitions
The 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.
Unlike software emulation solutions, the CB 500 logical partitioning feature does not degrade application performance. Unlike 3rd-party virtualization solutions, it does not require additional components, keeping total cost of ownership low. 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. CB 500 provides additional flexibility: Use the embedded logical partitioning feature or Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware, or all 3 in a single chassis.
Unprecedented Adaptability
Hitachi 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.
