Supporting Intel Xeon family E7-2800 processors (E7-2800 series) plus the E7-8867L E7 family low voltage processors, the HP ProLiant BL620c G7 is a fully balanced server blade that perfectly combines extensive scalability, virtualization and performance in an economical Intel Xeon platform. Based on a two-processor (2P) architecture, this server blade support up to two top-performing Intel Xeon 130-watt processors without configuration restrictions and 32 DIMM slots for up to 1.0 TB of memory. The ProLiant BL620c G7 Server Blade also comes with two hot-plug drive bays plus four 10 Gb FlexFabric ports combined with three mezzanine slots to yield an outstanding 96 Gb of I/O bandwidth. All these features work together to help you expand your business and improve performance significantly. The ProLiant BL620c G7 Server Blade is ideal for larger virtualization/consolidation projects, databases, business processing (like ERP and CRM), decision support, larger consolidation projects, and general 2-socket scale-up applications.
The World’s Most Scalable 2P Server in a Single Full-height Blade Form Factor 2P blade with 32 DIMM slots for up to 1.0 TB of memory provides virtualization efficiency for large consolidation projects and a variety of demanding data intensive workloads. Up to two top performing Intel Xeon E7-2800 processors each up to 130 watts deliver maximum computing power for a two socket server blade. 40 Gb of embedded FlexFabric ports and three I/O expansion slots bring the total maximum I/O bandwidth to 96 Gb supporting up to 140 VMs.
Powerful 2P Performance and Economics in a Single Blade Server Choice of up to two Intel Xeon E7-2800 family or E7-8867L low voltage processors ideal for 2P applications requiring performance and features greater than typical dual processor (DP) Intel Xeon offerings. The BL620c G7 scalability offers up to 10.7x memory, increased memory performance and an extensive list of memory RAS features, 4.4x the VMs, 20x the embedded and 4.4x the total I/O bandwidth, 3x the on-board I/O slots, and 20x the internal storage than other 2P blade servers available today. Two 10-core processors on the BL620c G7 provide significantly greater performance compared to previous generation Intel Xeon 4-core 7400 series processors cutting the number of sockets nearly in half, ideal for reducing licensing costs of software that is based on the number of processor or sockets. The Intel Xeon E7-2800 family of processors are designed specifically for economical, high performance two socket servers.
Four Embedded HP Virtual Connect 10Gb FlexFabric Adapters Four embedded NC553i 10Gb Converged Network Adapter ports deliver extensive bandwidth for network intensive applications with up to 16 connections to network and storage without the need for add-in I/O mezzanine cards. Integrated Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and hardware-based iSCSI with iSCSI boot simplify management and lower infrastructure costs by converging LAN and SAN traffic over the same flexible connection. Optimize server efficiency with the included TCP/IP offload engine, FCoE, hardware-based iSCSI, Flex-10, and autosensing 10GbE/1GbE capability. Ability to utilize the adapter high-end FlexFabric features or configure than as standard 1Gb or 10Gb Ethernet ports.
Fully Balanced, Optimized Intel Xeon 2S Architecture With major advances in CPU performance, applications are already memory and I/O bound, not processor. Yet, typical server blades are often unbalanced, providing processor performance and density at the expense of proportional memory capacity, I/O bandwidth and storage. The E7-2800 family and E7-8867L processor represent Intel's greatest Xeon performance leap in history over the previous generation 7400 series. Rather than provide a processor-heavy design, the BL620c G7 fully optimizes all the capabilities of the E7-2800 family and E7-8867L multiprocessor 2S architecture. Each socket includes the maximum allowable two memory controllers that each have two Intel Scalable Memory Interface (SMI) buses. Each SMI connects to a memory buffer that supports four 16 GB DIMMs for a total of 16 DIMMs per processor socket (32 DIMMs or up to 1.0TB of memory per server). Each socket supports 130 watts allowing up to two maximum performing E7-2800 family processors.
