HPE BladeSystem overview
HPE BladeSystem with HPE OneView delivers a whole new experience for IT with the Power
of One—one infrastructure, one management platform to speed the delivery of services. Only
the Power of One delivers leading infrastructure convergence, availability with federation, and
agility through data center automation. HPE BladeSystem helps you lower data center costs
by 68 percent,1 so you can shift investment from routine maintenance to innovation, maximize
availability by reducing downtime up to 90 percent,2 and accelerate enterprise workload
deployment such as virtualization and cloud computing up to 66X faster. 3
HPE BladeSystem delivers real business results
HPE BladeSystem is a modular infrastructure platform that converges servers, storage, and
network fabric to accelerate operations and speed delivery of applications and services running
in physical, virtual, and cloud-computing environments. Because the core infrastructure is
shared, capital costs can be significantly lower. Blades share power, cooling, network, and storage
infrastructure at the BladeSystem enclosure level. Since equipment is not needed for each
server, there is a dramatic reduction in power distribution units (PDUs), power cables, LAN and
SAN switches, connectors, adapters, and cables. And you can bring in the newest-generation
technologies by simply changing the components that need to be updated.
Making routine HPE BladeSystem infrastructure changes takes up to 90 percent4 less time with
the wire-once connectivity only available with HPE Virtual Connect. Virtual Connect simplifies
and converges your server-edge connections, making server connections transparent to storage
and networks. You can reduce server-edge infrastructure, like network interface cards, cables,
and switches, by up to 95 percent.5 To further simplify connectivity beyond server and storage
infrastructures, HPE Virtual Connect FlexFabric modules can be directly connected to HPE 3PAR
storage solutions via direct-attach Flat SAN technology, reducing complexity, cost, and latency.
Take control of limited power resources with HPE Intelligent Infrastructure and Thermal Logic
technology inside HPE BladeSystem. In fact, you can increase the capacity of your data center
without adding power infrastructure and reduce power costs by 36 percent6 vs. a traditional
environment. HPE Intelligent Infrastructure automates inventory management and power
monitoring to speed implementation and reduce operating expenses, while eliminating downtime
caused by error-prone manual processes. HPE Thermal Logic technology lets administrators
dynamically track and control power limits based on workload demand within the BladeSystem
enclosure, so you can reclaim over-provisioned power and cooling capacity without impacting
performance. Together, they track location, power, and cooling to give you better insight across
your data center for the highest efficiency possible.
Simplified management with HPE OneView delivers unprecedented ease of use, so you can deploy
and manage HPE BladeSystem faster, at lower cost, and at greater scale. HPE OneView is the
first software platform that creates a modern and integrated workspace for automated lifecycle
management of HPE BladeSystem. HPE OneView reduces the needs for multiple management tools
and non-management tools, streamlining processes and eliminating common sources of errors.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s global community of business technology experts and partners is
here to help you build a solution and support plan that is just right for your needs. And we do a
lot of the hard work for you by integrating the infrastructure essentials inside the BladeSystem.
It arrives at your door ready to deliver the best business results.
Building your ideal BladeSystem infrastructure solution begins with these eight simple steps:
•Step 1: Choose your operating environment
•Step 2: Choose your BladeSystem enclosure
•Step 3: Choose your interconnects
•Step 4: Choose your server blades
•Step 5: Choose your storage infrastructure
•Step 6: Choose your infrastructure management
•Step 7: Choose your power and cooling configurations
•Step 8: Choose your services
Step 1: Choose your operating environment
HPE Integrity and HPE ProLiant server blades run in almost the same operating environment
as other HPE servers, but with the advantages of a BladeSystem infrastructure. You can mix and
match different Integrity and ProLiant server blades and run multiple operating environments in
the same enclosure.

Step 2: Choose your BladeSystem enclosure
Hewlett Packard Enterprise offers versatile enclosures to match the unique needs of large or
small IT environments. The HPE BladeSystem c7000 and c3000 Platinum Enclosures provide all
the power, cooling, and I/O infrastructure required to support modular server, interconnect, and
storage components.
These enclosures help you simplify the infrastructure, reduce purchase and operating costs, adapt
to changing business and infrastructure needs, and significantly lower energy consumption.
Intelligent infrastructure support: Power Discovery Services allows BladeSystem enclosures
to communicate information to HPE Intelligent PDUs that automatically track enclosure power
connections to the specific iPDU outlet to help ensure redundancy and prevent downtime.
Location Discovery Services allows the c7000 to automatically record its exact location in
HPE Intelligent Series Racks, eliminating time-consuming manual asset tracking.
HPE BladeSystem Onboard Administrator is the built-in enclosure management processor,
subsystem, and firmware base used to support the HPE BladeSystem c-Class enclosures and
all the managed devices contained within them. Onboard Administrator provides a single point
from which to perform management tasks on server blades or switches within the enclosure.
Together with the enclosure’s HPE Insight Display, the Onboard Administrator was designed for
both local and remote HPE BladeSystem c-Class administration.
This module and its firmware provide:
•Wizards for simple, fast setup and configuration
•Highly available and secure local or remote access to the HPE BladeSystem infrastructure
•Security roles for server, network, and storage administrators
•Automated power and cooling of the enclosure
•Agentless device health and status
•Power and cooling information and control
Each enclosure ships with an Onboard Administrator module/firmware. HPE BladeSystem
Platinum Enclosures can be configured with redundant Onboard Administrator modules to

“How do we enable anywhere,
anytime application and information
delivery, while also ensuring the
protection of corporate information
and minimizing management?”
For many companies, the answer is to
virtualize the desktop environment and
deploy a flexible work style strategy with
initiatives such as Bring Your Own Device
(BYOD). BYOD enables workers to use
their own smartphone, tablet, or laptop
for business purposes, but with important
improvements: device management and
application delivery take place in the data
center, not on the end-point device. This
approach offers many advantages:
HPE client virtualization solutions
Today’s workforce is global and mobile. Workers have new expectations for data and application
delivery. They want seamless collaboration, eLearning, and unified communications (i.e., instant
messaging and video conferencing) capabilities. They demand support for next-generation
applications that can transform the way they work. And they want the ability to work from any
location, at any time, using any device.
While this new work paradigm has distinct advantages—with increased productivity topping
the list—it also presents new challenges. For example, managing a large distributed workforce
is complex and time consuming. Security breaches are also a major concern, regardless of the
end-point device being used.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise delivers both enterprise and small/midsize business (SMB)
reference architectures integrated with Citrix®, Microsoft, and VMware software that explain
how to:
• Lower desktop costs
•Provide secure access to applications and desktops by supporting hosted-shared,
VDI desktops and application virtualization, while also optimizing the efficiency of the
IT infrastructure.
• Company information remains secure
behind the corporate firewall, even when
an end-user device is lost or stolen
•Improve efficiency using a single, common, modular, standards-based platform like
HPE BladeSystem to support all types of workloads, from task workers to workstation-class
graphics users.
• Increased worker productivity and
empowerment
•Speed the deployment of client virtualization solutions, enhance the worker experience, and
boost productivity.

Step 6: Choose your infrastructure management
Eliminating infrastructure complexity with automation simplicity.
Software-defined infrastructure management designed for the way you work and think
HPE OneView is a fresh approach to converged infrastructure management, with a single
integrated view of your IT infrastructure. By shifting the focus from “how devices run” to “how
people work,” HPE OneView architecture delivers unprecedented ease of use that lets you deploy
and manage your infrastructure faster, at a lower cost, accelerating time to business value.
Transform the way you manage your IT infrastructure—today
You can use HPE OneView to automate the deployment, update and ongoing management
of HPE BladeSystem. The HPE OneView dashboard provides an easy-to-understand
summary/status of servers, storage pools and enclosures. Color-coded icons tell you which
systems are functioning properly and which ones need help—whether you manage five systems
or 500. The HPE OneView intuitive dashboard provides an at-a-glance view of configuration
compliance making it easy to enforce consistent configurations across server profiles.
•One platform manages HPE BladeSystem and HPE 3PAR StoreServ storage.
•Smart Search instantly finds what you are looking for, without forcing you to search through
long and complicated tree views.
•3-D Power/Thermal Mapping provides intuitive power management.
HPE infrastructure management is
delivered through a complete portfolio
of HPE ProLiant server lifecycle
management capabilities that can flexibly
operate from embedded on-system
utilities, on premises for software defined
data centers, and now even from the
cloud. Managing HPE ProLiant Servers
with HPE infrastructure management
results in increased efficiency and precise
control of your server infrastructure
resources. With a rich set of capabilities
that are easy to access and simple to use,

Software-defined infrastructure management
Based on software-defined management, HPE OneView automates time consuming tasks of lifecycle
management with open standards based, easy-to-use, repeatable templates that capture the
best-practice configuration of your virtualized infrastructure across compute, storage and fabric, so
you can make error-free changes once, then replicate them across your infrastructure fast and easily.
Using such templates, you can define firmware baselines, bios configurations, compute, storage
and fabric once and then provision the configuration many times—consistently and reliably with no
manual repetitive tasks.
You can then manage your infrastructure as pools of resources optimized to the workloads you
are running. Streamline and automate your administrative and operational tasks to significantly
increase productivity. Roll out new technologies and applications faster, and lower the costs
associated with downtime and regulatory risks.
Automated platform
HPE OneView automation hub accelerates deployment and lifecycle management of HPE
infrastructure. You can automate deployment of multiple enclosures, blades, storage, and
networking programmatically—using the industry-standard REST API or your choice of
PowerShell and Python language bindings. With HPE OneView automation capabilities, you can:
•Automate the process of making configuration changes with server profile templates. Profile
templates used in combination with HPE Software Update Tools enables online and staged
update of drivers and firmware.
•Inform multiple management tools or systems administrators of changes to the infrastructure
managed by HPE OneView.
•Quickly react to environmental changes by deploying or updating resources, updating asset
management records, or automatically creating service tickets.
•Enable virtualization administrators to automate control of HPE resources—with no detailed
knowledge of each device—via the easy integration with third-party management tools such
as Chef, VMware vCenter and Microsoft System Center.
HPE OneView delivers a completely new level of storage automation with full integration of
HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage in the HPE OneView Server Profiles for automated, policy-driven
rollout of enterprise class storage resources.
HPE Virtual Connect continues to play an integral role in the success of HPE OneView. HPE Virtual
Connect simplifies and converges your server edge connections, making server changes transparent
to storage and networks, and delivers 4X the number of connections per physical network link.
These features are added to provide Virtual Connect feature parity to HPE OneView.

Step 7: Choose your power and cooling configurations
HPE 8.6 kVA 24 A Three-Phase
Core Intelligent Modular Power
Distribution Unit
Please note: Hewlett Packard Enterprise
offers larger capacity Intelligent PDUs.
For more information: hp.com/go/ipdu.
The BladeSystem c7000 Platinum Enclosure provides all the power, cooling, and I/O
infrastructure needed to support modular server, interconnect, and storage components
today and throughout the next several years.
Power is delivered through a pooled-power backplane, and power input flexibility is provided
with a choice of single-phase high-line AC, three-phase high-line AC, single-phase high voltage
AC, -48 V DC, or high voltage DC.
If you want to measure the power you use, you first need to control it. With HPE Thermal Logic,
you can do both. HPE Intelligent Infrastructure technology combines energy-efficient design
with accurate measurement and control—all without sacrificing performance. This means you
can double the capacity of HPE server blades in the data center with Dynamic Power Capping
delivered through HPE OneView. The combination of HPE Intelligent Infrastructure with
HPE OneView software allows you to manage all your HPE servers and storage environments
from a single console—so that you can easily do more with fewer resources. Save power every
second with power configurations and redundancy levels to suit your needs.
HPE created the HPE Power Advisor utility to provide more accurate and meaningful
estimates of power needs for HPE ProLiant server blades. This utility can even show you how
HPE Intelligent Infrastructure can help you save money by enhancing power and cooling. Learn
more or download the HPE Power Advisor at hpe.com/info/poweradvisor.
HPE Intelligent Infrastructure capabilities
Active cool fans
Both high airflow and high pressure are delivered in a small size that can scale to meet future cooling needs. This technology provides the ability to optimize
airflow, reduce power draw, and improve acoustic performance for any server blade configuration.
Parallel redundant scalable
enclosure cooling (PARSEC) design
A hybrid model for cooling combines the best features of local and centralized cooling in a single system to offer more effective airflow and cooling for all servers.
Server blades get more cooling airflow where it is needed most and use less power than traditional rack servers.
Instant thermal monitoring
A real-time view of heat, power, and cooling data is provided. If the enclosure’s thermal load increases, the Onboard Administrator’s Thermal Logic feature
instructs the fan controllers to increase fan speeds to accommodate the additional demand. Even better, it works in reverse, using all the features of Thermal
Logic to keep fan and system power at the lowest level possible. Onboard Administrator monitors the thermal conditions on the hardware in real time, without a
delay for a polling cycle.
Power pooled for true N+N power
redundancy
All the power in the enclosure is provided as a single pool that any blade can access, providing increased flexibility when configuring the power in the system so
that you can choose the level of redundancy with which to operate. Because this power design has no zones, it facilitates both N+N and N+1 power modes, which
future-proofs the enclosure for higher power requirements, if needed.
High-efficiency power supplies
High-efficiency power supplies can help you conserve power throughout your data center. These high-efficiency power supplies come standard with each
BladeSystem enclosure. Both the c3000 and c7000 power supplies are up to 94 percent efficient. As a leader in energy efficiency, HPE is the first in the market to
offer Platinum-level, 94 percent efficient power supplies for blade enclosures.
Dynamic power saver mode
Power load shifting improves power supply efficiency to provide real savings in power and costs. When enabled through Onboard Administrator, the total
enclosure power consumption is monitored in real time and automatically adjusted with changes on demand.
Power regulator
HPE Power Regulator provides Integrated Lights-Out-controlled speed-stepping for Intel x86, AMD x86, and Intel® Itanium® 9100 series processors. This feature
improves server energy efficiency by giving CPUs full power for applications when they need it and reducing power when they do not.
Power workload balancing
Power workload balancing improves performance per watt and uses HPE Power Regulator technology to manage power at the enclosure level so that power
usage stays within defined power caps. Using power caps, system administrators can constrain the most BTUs per enclosure and rack to enable the enclosure to
fit in an existing rack power envelope. A simple power cap allows devices to power on until power usage reaches the specified power cap, and then prevents any
more devices from powering on. Power workload balancing is available now for ProLiant blades and will be available in the future for Integrity blades.
Enclosure dynamic power capping
Safely limit power usage without impacting performance by capping peak instead of average power usage. Remove risk to the electrical infrastructure with a
fast-acting, hardware-based capping algorithm. Reclaim more power with blades by dynamically controlling power limits based on workload demand.
HPE Intelligent Power Distribution
Unit (iPDU)
Brings state-of-the-art management and control to rack-mounted power distribution units to prevent over-provisioning of power from restricting growth in your
data center. Using the core and stick architecture of the HPE Modular PDU line, the HPE Intelligent PDU monitors power consumption at the core, load segment,
stick, and outlet levels with unmatched precision and accuracy. Remote management is built in, and even enables power cycles on individual outlets on the
Intelligent Extension Bars.
Location discovery services
Automatically record the exact location in HPE Intelligent Series Racks, eliminating time-consuming manual asset tracking.
