Together HPE BladeSystem and OneView deliver a roadmap to Composable infrastructure, delivering a powerful management platform to accelerate service delivery. HPE blades share core infrastructure including power, cooling, network, and storage infrastructure, offering substantial costs reduction by eliminating excess power distribution units (PDUs), power cables, LAN and SAN switches, connectors, adapters and cables by up to 95%.
Routine infrastructure change take up to 90% less time via the wire-once connectivity of HPE Virtual Connect, simplifying converging server edge connections and making these connections transparent to storage and networks. HPE Virtual Connect FlexFabric modules can directly connect to HPE 3PAR using direct-attach Flat SAN technology, cutting complexity, cost and latency.
HPE blades optimise power usage and resource via:
- HPE Intelligent Infrastructure, automating inventory management and power monitoring to accelerate implementation and cut operating expenses, eliminating downtime from manual errors
- HPE Thermal Logic enables administrators to dynamically track and control power limits based on workload demand within the BladeSystem enclosure, reclaiming over-provisioned power and cooling capacity without impacting performance
- Together, these solutions track location, power and cooling, providing improved insight across the data center and maximising efficiency.
HPE OneViewsimplifies and speeds up HPE BladeSystem management, reducing costs and enabling scale. It offers single-view, unified management with near real-time intelligence for managing huge numbers of HPE servers. OneView provides automated templates that help IT to rapidly and reliably compose and update compute, storage and network resources. Users can also automate provisioning, configuration, and monitoring via the HPE OneView unified API.
Create a modern and integrated workspace for HPE BladeSystem automation, using OneView to eliminate multiple management and non-management tools, streamline processes and remove common errors.
Modular, future-proof design
Using its modular design, building the perfect BladeSystem infrastructure can be achieved in just eight simple steps from choosing the operating environment right through to choosing server and storage blades and configuring power and cooling, HPE can pre-build and integrate the core infrastructure components so that the system can be delivered to site ready for business.
