Overview

BladeSymphony blade servers inherit its core design from Hitachi's line of highly reliable mainframe platforms bound together by a robust management software solution. BladeSymphony management solutions simplify the administration and management of BladeSymphony servers in enterprise data centers. BladeSymphony 1000 blade systems also supports Multi-Blade Symmetric Multi Processing (SMP) interconnect technology for scalable performance. Transaction recovery is supported with our N+M standby feature improving system reliability and availability. High performance and high availability features allow BladeSymphony to be utilized in small departmental office environments to large back-end enterprise data centers.

HP ProLiant BladeSystem share power, cooling, network, and storage infrastructure via the blade enclosure. Since equipment is not needed for each server, you get a dramatic reduction in power distribution units, power cables, LAN and SAN switches, connectors, adapters, and cables. And you can add the newest-generation technologies by simply changing individual components.
