The HP ProLiant BL680c G7 Server Blade provides maximum performance and unparalleled scale-up expansion never before
seen in a four-processor x86 server blade. Two models are now available, one optimized for the Intel® Xeon® E7-4800 series
and the other optimized for the Intel® Xeon® 7500 series. Fully utilizing the design architecture of the Intel® Xeon® 7500
chipset, up to four top performing 130W 7500 processors are supported along with 64 RDIMM slots creating the first blade
server to offer 2.0TB ( BL680c G7 Intel Xeon E7-4800 models) and 1.0TB (BL680c G7 Intel Xeon 7500 models) of memory.
The six 10Gb FlexFabric ports with built-in FCoE, Flex-10, hardware-based accelerated iSCSI, iSCSI boot, TCP/IP offload
engine, and autosensing 10GbE and 1GbE combined with the seven (7) PCIe Gen2 mezzanine expansion slots. The
extensive expandability and performance of the BL680c G7 creates an extremely powerful database engine while handling a
variety of very demanding workloads and making traditional multi-processor (MP) rack to blade transition a true reality.
Traditional MP server blades are typically unbalanced providing processor performance and density at the expense of
proportional memory capacity and I/O bandwidth. As such, these unbalanced servers fail when faced with larger databases
higher-density virtualization applications. Today, you have a better alternative. By designing a balanced architecture, the
BL680c G7 is a very progressive 4P blade offering that ensures that all subsystems can be used effectively under a broad
range of enterprise applications and workloads. The 4P BL680c G7 along with the 2P BL620c G7 together provide a complete
Intel® Xeon® portfolio creating a new class of scale-up HP ProLiant server blades delivering the reliability and performance
you need to handle demanding workloads with confidence.

personnel to dynamically keep pace with the organizations changing
business requirements. It enables them to plan capacity and power
continuously, balance across physical and virtual resources, and ensure
cost-effective high availability. It also enables IT organizations to
provision infrastructure consistently and automatically from pools of
shared resources using a self-service portal. Resources provisioned can
range from a single virtual machine to complex multi-tier environments
and their associated physical and virtual resource requirements. In
addition to the previous functional benefits, it also provides a costeffective disaster recovery for physical and virtual environments that
works with HP StorageWorks Continuous Access software for both the
Enterprise Virtual Array and the XP storage array allowing application
environments to be reactivated in minutes with the touch of a button to a
remote location.

Availability
Memory
HP Memory Quarantine (Intel MCA Recovery) Ready. In conjunction with the operating
system support, allows a server to recover from uncorrectable memory errors which would
have otherwise caused a system crash. (BL620c G7 Intel Xeon E7-2400 models).
Double Device Data Correction (DDDC) Ready. DDDC provides the ability to save a DIMM
from being replaced due to a bad dram device (BL680c G7 Intel Xeon E7-4800 models).
Data Bus ECC protection for automatic correction from a single data bit error and detection of
double data error bits.
Advanced ECC / SDDC provides continued memory operation in the event of a single
memory device failure and allows removal of a single DRAM from the memory map if it
exhibits a failure and recovers its data into a new device.
Supports for both x4 and x8 Intel® SDDC.
Demand Scrubbing writes corrected data back to the memory once a correctable error is
detected on a read transaction.
DIMM Address/Control Bus Parity Protection provides a means to detect and protect
command and address errors.
Memory Failover uses a mirrored DIMM once a failed DIMM in a mirrored set is detected.

HP ProLiant BL680c Generation 7 Server Blade
Standard Features
Memory Mirroring provides a copy of memory stored with dynamic failover in case of failure
within socket (intra-socket) memory mirroring.
The system will operate in non-hemisphere mode when mirroring is enabled.
Rank Sparring (On Line Spare) provides dynamic failover to a spare DIMM rank or spare rank
pair behind the same memory controller. Cannot be enabled concurrently with memory
mirroring.
NOTE: HP offers the rank sparing rather than DIMM sparing as rank sparing uses less spare
memory resulting in less overhead.
Failed DIMM Isolation identifies a specific failing DIMM lockstep pair thereby enabling the
user to replace only the failed DIMM pair. Identifies a single DIMM for correctable errors and
DIMM pair for uncorrectable errors.
Virtualization
Intel® VT-x (FlexMigration, FlexPriority, and Extended Page Tables) provides:
Platform control between the VMM and guest OSs for faster, more reliable and secure
transfers.
VM migration features that enhance flexibility for failover, load balancing, disaster
recovery, and maintenance.
Intel® VT-x Real Mode & Pause Loop Exiting (BL680c G7 Intel Xeon E7-4800 models):
Real Mode allows guests to operate in real mode, removing the performance overhead
and complexity of an emulator.
Pause Loop Exiting provides detection of spin locks in guest software and helps avoid
lock-holder preemption to reduce overhead and improve performance
Intel® VT-d (Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O) enables the VMM to assign
specific I/O devices to specific guest OSs improving security and availability.
Mezzanine options and I/O
Optional dual-port Fibre Channel mezzanine cards for redundant SAN connections.
Optional dual-port InfiniBand mezzanine cards for redundant high performance connections.
Six embedded Ethernet adapter ports for redundant LAN connections.
Multiple mezzanine I/O expansion slots each supported multiple data paths routed to
redundant interconnect modules.
Network Adapter Teaming (Bonding) provides network fault tolerance, transmit load
balancing, and switch-assisted load balancing.
Processor/Chipset
Processor Internal Sensors & Thermal Control protection against over-temperature
conditions.
Cache parity/ECC protects cache data from accidental data corruption due to particle hits.
Machine Check Architecture (MCA) detects and captures hardware errors such as system
bus, ECC, parity, cache, other.
Enhanced MCA handling & error logging builds upon the original Machine Check Architecture
to: offers more "banks" and increased "resolution" for reporting errors that cause MCA events
and 2) sets check flags for the OS to poll.
External Bus Error Recovery (ECC) enables automatic correction from a single data bit error
and detection of double data error bits on the memory data bus.
Corrupt Data Containment tags faulty data before it is consumed (often called data poisoning)
to limit the impact to the currently running program and to greatly reduce the need to reset the
system.
On-Die Error Protection protects registers from particle hits.
Storage
Four hot-plug SAS/SATA/SSD drive bays.
Integrated HP Smart Array P410i Controller with RAID 0 and 1 standard; optional RAID 1+0,
5, and 6.
Integrated HP Smart Array P410i Controller upgradeable firmware with recovery ROM
capability.

attach and shared SAS storage external to the c-Class enclosure.
Intel® QuickPath Interconnect (QPI)
QPI Link Retry restarts as cycle when a failure is detected on the link.
QPI Clock Failover redirects the forwarded clock to one of the two failover clock lanes in the
event of a forwarded clock failure.
QPI Self-Healing enables a QPI link to map a failed lane and downshift from full to ½ width (or
½ width to ¼ width) QPI link if there are errors on the link.
QPI Cycle Redundancy Checking (CRC) automatically detects data errors using a checksum
of either 8 bits or 16 bits.
QPI Poisoning tags an erroneous packet with a "poisoned bit" on the QPI fabric.
QPI Lane Failover identifies a faulty lane within data paths removing them from operation
reducing command/address errors.
Server Blade Enclosure Infrastructure
Up to 10 hot-plug redundant Active Cool fans per enclosure.
Up to 6 hot-plug high efficiency redundant power supplies per enclosure.

HP ProLiant BL680c Generation 7 Server Blade
Memory
Memory Subsystem Architecture
For maximum memory bandwidth, performance, and capacity, each Intel® Xeon® E7-4800 and 7500 series processor
socket contains two memory controllers. Each memory controller has two Intel® Scalable Memory Interface (SMI) buses
operating in lockstep for a total of four SMIs per processor. Each SMI in turn connects to an Intel® Scalable Memory Buffer
(SMB). The purpose of the memory buffer is to convert SMI to DDR3. Each of the four memory buffers has two DDR3
channels that support four RDIMMs each for grand total of sixteen RDIMMs per installed processor (64 RDIMMs total per
BL680c G7 server).
Maximum memory capacity is a function of the server model:
The BL680c G7 server models supporting Intel Xeon E7-4800 processors includes the new Intel® 7510 Scalable
Memory Buffer supporting up to 32GB DDR3 RDIMMs providing 2.0TB of memory (32GB RDIMMs x 64 DIMM slots).
The BL680c G7 server models supporting Intel Xeon 7500 processors support up to 16GB DDR3 RDIMMs providing
512MB of memory (16GB RDIMMs x 64 DIMM slots).
All RDIMMs will operate at the highest possible speed for a given processor. Memory speed is not affected by number of
RDIMMs or ranks. However, memory speed is a function of the processors QPI bus speed per the following:
Processors with a QPI speed of 6.40GT will operate memory at 1066MHz
Processors with a QPI speed of 5.86GT will operate memory at 978MHz
Processors with a QPI speed of 4.80GT will operate memory at 800MHz
DDR3 and DDR3L Memory Population Guidelines
An overview of the RDIMM installation guidelines are summarized below. For detailed memory configuration rules and
guidelines, please see the BL680c G7 user guide at: www.hp.com/support and the Online DDR3 Memory Configuration Tool
at: www.hp.com/go/ddr3memory-configurator
1.
2.
3.
4.
Install only HP BL680c G7 supported DDR3 and DDR3L RDIMMs.
RDIMMs must be installed for processor 1.
Populate RDIMM slots for a processor only if the processor is installed.
To maximize performance in multi-processor configurations, distribute the total memory capacity between all
processors as evenly as possible.
5. The minimum configuration is two RDIMMs installed on processor 1.
6. RDIMMs must be installed in pairs with identical characteristics. When possible, for configuration simplicity, HP
recommends using RDIMMs with identical part numbers throughout the system.
7. For best performance, HP recommends that RDIMM pairs be populated in sequence by letter designation. Install
RDIMM pair (4A, 5A) first, followed by RDIMM pair (12B, 16B), RDIMM pair (2C, 7C), RDIMM pair (10D, 14D), RDIMM
pair (3E, 6E), RDIMM pair (11F, 15F), and RDIMM pair (1G, 8G).
8. When installing mixed rank RDIMMs for any processor, RDIMMs with the highest number of ranks must be installed in
the white RDIMM connector locations. This guarantees proper electrical signaling on the DDR3 channel since
RDIMMs with higher rank counts present larger electrical loading on the DDR3 channel and must be populated at the
end point of the channel.
9. 1.5V DDR3 and 1.35V DDR3L RDIMMs may be installed within the same socket. In this case, all RDIMMs on that
socket will operate at 1.5V.
10. The BL680c G7 supports memory hemisphere mode (for a high-performance memory interleaving technology) as well
as several advanced memory modes (AMP) including advanced ECC, online spare, and mirrored memory. Please see
the BL680c G7 user guide at: www.hp.com/support for a description of each of these features and their memory
configuration guidelines.
11. There are several additional recommended steps for memory performance optimization, please see the BL680c G7
user guide at: www.hp.com/support for a complete list.
