HP Beefs Up BladeSystem Bandwidth

HP this week took the wraps off the biggest evolution of its BladeSystem portfolio in years.

John Gromala, Director of Product Marketing, Industry Standard Servers and Software at HP told ServerWatch that the new BladeSystem c7000 Platinum enclosure and the new ProLiant WS460c Gen8 blade are the biggest things to happen to HP’s BladeSystem since the introduction of the c class back in 2006.

Gromala said that the c7000 now provides up to 40 percent more networking bandwidth that previous c-class BladeSystems. The primary reason for the networking boost is a new backplane that can provide up 7 Tbs of aggregate bandwidth.
