This allows customers to have a more flexible architecture, while also having great performance, making it ideal for virtualized infrastructures and demanding cloud applications This helps customers reduce integration efforts and even quicken the time to produce critical 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... 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,” said Johnson Khoo, Managing Director, Hitachi Data Systems Malaysia
Hitachi's Compute Blade 500 server comes with a high-density 6U rack mount blade server system with a chassis that can store up to eight blade servers and features native logical partition (LPAR) technology implemented in firmware.
