HP has expanded the HP BladeSystem portfolio with an Integrity blade designed to handle memory-intensive data center workloads while helping businesses lower cost, save energy and space, and decrease deployment time.

As the company’s first four-socket Integrity server blade, the HP Integrity BL870c combines the modular infrastructure and energy efficiency of HP BladeSystem with the business-critical capabilities of Integrity servers.

The new server can help businesses of all sizes realize power savings of up to 25 percent. Space requirements also are reduced because 2.5 times as many BL870c server blades fit into the same space as a comparable rackmount configuration.(1)

To help take the guesswork out of building an Integrity blade solution, HP also has created Solution Blocks for its Integrity servers. These HP-tested configurations allow customers and resellers to quickly deploy business-critical applications on the HP BladeSystem.

“The BL870c expands the BladeSystem portfolio into the heart of the business-critical market, combining the benefits of blades around cost, time, change and energy, with the proven scalability and availability of Integrity systems,” said Mark Potter, vice president, BladeSystem, HP. “With this server, we now address the broadest spectrum of workloads with a blade infrastructure in the industry. Our commitment to innovation is unmatched and we’ll continue our ’blade everything’ strategy where it helps customers align their technology with the needs of their business.” [Press Release]
