New Hitachi Compute Blade Server Delivers High Performance And Scalability With An Open Architecture

Hitachi Data Systems Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (NYSE:HIT) (TSE:6501), today announced that it has expanded its portfolio of Hitachi Compute Systems with the addition of the new Hitachi Compute Blade 500. The new blade server is the first Hitachi Data Systems product to incorporate the latest Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600. The open, flexible architecture and high-performance, high-availability features of Hitachi Compute Blade 500 make it an ideal platform for virtualized infrastructures and demanding cloud applications.

“Hitachi Compute Blade 500 is a further step in our server strategy to help customers reduce integration efforts and accelerate time to production for critical applications,” said Roberto Basilio, vice president, Infrastructure Platforms Product Management, Hitachi Data Systems. “Tight integration with Hitachi Data Systems storage and industry-standard data networking systems together with connection to common data center management frameworks speeds deployment and reduces total cost of ownership. We are already working with major software vendors to develop converged data center solutions with Hitachi Compute Blade 500 that will deliver added value, optimized performance and predictable scalability.”

Hitachi Compute Blade 500 is a high-density 6U rack mount blade server system with a chassis that supports up to 8 server blades with associated I/O and management hardware. Like all Hitachi Compute Systems, the new blade server features native logical partition (LPAR) technology implemented in firmware. LPAR technology is typically associated with more expensive high-end enterprise platforms and is a reflection of the extensive experience and mainframe heritage of Hitachi Data Systems. An ideal complement to host-based virtualization, LPAR technology improves optimization of resources, and lets customers decrease overhead costs and increase manageability, reliability and performance. Hitachi Compute Blade 500 supports the co-existence of its native logical partitioning capabilities and different software hypervisors in the same chassis, bringing increased efficiency and flexibility to the data center.
