Hitachi Compute Blade 500 also introduces a new state-of-the-art embedded 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch designed to increase scalability and enhance virtual machine (VM) mobility, further simplifying management and significantly reducing operational overhead of virtualized blade server environments. The new switch has a non-blocking, cut-through architecture for industry-leading performance and ultra-low latency, and dual speed (1Gbps/10Gbps) capable external ports.The open, high-performance and flexible architecture of Hitachi Compute Blade 500 allows the system to be easily configured for a mix of virtualized applications and converged platform solutions. Server resources can be dynamically reallocated to match workload changes, and high levels of availability are achieved through features such as redundancy, hot-swap and automated cold standby failover. Today’s announcement builds on a foundation of more than 50 years of innovation and leadership in the enterprise server market. Hitachi Compute Blade 500 joins the existing portfolio of Hitachi Compute Systems, which includes Hitachi Compute Blade 2000 and Hitachi Compute Blade 320. The portfolio also includes a family of rack-optimized servers, Hitachi Compute Rack, that are the foundation for dedicated, packaged solutions such as the company’s award-winning object store, Hitachi Content Platform (HCP). Hitachi Compute Systems are ideal servers upon which to build converged data center solutions. These solutions combine Hitachi Data Systems storage, compute and industry-standard data networking systems, and are pre-configured and optimized for leading applications such as Microsoft® Exchange 2010, SAP HANA™ and solutions with VMware. The seamless management integration of converged data center solutions from Hitachi Data Systems lets applications be deployed faster and with more predictability. This integration also creates operational efficiencies that can reduce costs and improve centralized management of enterprise application implementations. New converged data center solutions that feature Hitachi Compute Blade 500 will be made available in the coming months. Web Resources
