What do you like most about HPE BladeSystem?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
With just one cable, for redundancy let's say two, you can feed sixteen servers in a single c7000 chassis.
The virtual connect and network management port is a valuable feature.
The benefit is the density and the capability for global harmonization on the hardware, because all the hardware chassis are the same. We can also purchase the same network cards too, chassis by chassis, so it gives us a global solution.
They have served different needs for us from virtualized web servers to dedicated databases and application servers.
They are reliable, and it's relatively easy to manage them. They also regularly provide patching for the servers.
I really appreciate the integrated Onboard Administrator, the iLO (Integrated Lights-Out) modular network, and the SAN Switches.
