HPE Integrity BLc7000 CTO Enclosure | AD361D

ECS Refurbished & Tested

HPE Integrity BLc7000 CTO Enclosure | AD361D

As server, storage and network technologies have changed; traditional rack-mounted infrastructure solutions have generated increased complexity of both infrastructure management and physical datacenter deployment.

NOTE: The AD361D enclosure is suggested for configurations primarily used with
Integrity blades.

HP BladeSystem is the evolution of the entire rack-mounted infrastructure. A BladeSystem aims to reduce costs and simplify the management, building, and maintenance of the infrastructure behind your multi-server environment. It consolidates and repackages all the supporting infrastructure elements-compute,storage, network, and power into a single platform that can accelerate the integration and optimization of your data center.

With the flexibility to scale from a single enclosure holding up to 16 blades, to a rack containing 4enclosures holding up to 64 blades, the c-Class infrastructure is designed to meet the needs of today's businesses.

An HP BladeSystem c-Class infrastructure is made up of several components:

  • ProLiant and Integrity Server blades for Windows, Linux, and HP UX.
  • Choice of Intel processors, including the latest dual-core processors for 32-bit and 64-bitapplications.
  • HP BladeSystem c-Class enclosure that provides connectivity, power, and cooling options. The c-Class enclosure is designed for full redundancy and high availability. Redundant power, cooling,enclosure management, and interconnect modules are part of the standard enclosure design.
  • Onboard Administrator module which provides a single point of control for intelligent management of the entire enclosure.
  • Insight Display powered by the Onboard Administrator provides local management through an LCD display conveniently sited on the front of the system.
  • Ethernet, Fibre Channel, InfiniBand, iSCSI, and other interconnect choices
  • A power subsystem that provides redundant power modes and Dynamic Power Saving mode,which uses up to 22% less power than traditional rack-mounted servers.
  • PARSEC (Parallel, Redundant, Scaleable, Enclosure Cooling) architecture: for maximum cooling that consumes less power and reduces datacenter noise.
  • Future choice of Storage Blades: either direct-attach storage blades, or shared storage blades,which provide block-based shared storage capacity for the server blades in the enclosure.

HPE BladeSystem c7000 Base Knowledge.

The enclosures listed below include an Onboard Administrator with KVM and four (4) hot-plug Active Cool 200 Fans. The power module, power supply kits, power cables, interconnects, additional fans, etc. are added per the steps below.

The HPE c7000 is like the big brother to the HPE c3000. Both can handle the same HPE Blade server with the main difference being the amount each can support. The c3000 can handle up to 8 Blade Servers while the c7000 can handle up to 16 Blade Servers.

The c7000 enclosure is divided into 4 zones by the vertical support metalwork. Within each zone, a removable divider is used to support half-height devices. To install a full-height blade in any zone this divider must be removed. As a consequence, a zone can only contain either full-height server blades or half-height server blades.

An enclosure zone can only contain either full-height server blades or half-height server blades; mixing of the two form factors is not allowed except when connecting an expansion blade to a server partner blade.

NOTE: Insight Control is not supported with Gen10 server blades.

HPE BladeSystem c7000 Interconnect and Networking
The HPE c7000 can handle up to 8 Interconnects and 2 Onboard Administrators. The Interconnect bays 1 and 2 support the network (i.e. Ethernet capable) interconnects. These bays connect to the included network adapter ports in the server blades. Interconnect bays 3 and 4 must contain the same type of interconnect (network, SAN, SAS, etc) as they connect to the same mezzanine slot. Likewise for interconnect bays 5, 6, 7, and 8.

HPE BladeSystem c7000 Cooling

With a total of 10 fans this server can handle configurations with 4 or 6 fans. Ten fans are strongly recommended for maximum cooling efficiency and redundancy, reduced power consumption, and reduced noise. The enclosure supports a minimum of 4 Active Cool 200 Fans to a maximum of 10 Active Cool 200 Fans.

BladeSystem c7000 PSU
Mixing of power supplies is not supported, except during hot swaps to different level or higher efficient power supplies.
