HPE BladeSystem Scalability

The scalability is limited because you only have a 16-server by chassis, so you have to add more chassis, and you can't have a domain fabric like HPE Synergy, for example. You would need to have a taskforce behind the chassis to make the network possible, between the chassis, rather than a solution which is fully integrated via a domain fabric network solution. Behind a domain fabric, you can connect something like 20 chassis. With this technology, we will have a real scale-out possibility, rather than the C7000 chassis which does not scale out.

There were scalability issues. If we want to upgrade, the oldest version of the blade server cannot be mixed with the newest one. This is a problem of the firmware compatibility matrix of the on-board administrator. View full review »

The problem is that when want to expand with a new chassis, you have to do everything manually. It's not automatic. View full review »

We can have, if I remember correctly, 16 blades or something like that. We can have a half blade or full-size blade, so it's a way to manage our rack with the maximum scalability according to the power that we need. View full review »

It is scalable and suitable for our organization. We have not reached the maximum that HPE Bladesystem can reach. View full review »

The scalability is very flexible. You are not limited to any spec like server type, network, or fiber module differences. View full review »

No issues with scalability. We can scale by adding another enclosure. View full review »
