Product Details

Hitachi Compute Blade 520H B2 delivers better computing power and performance, as well as unprecedented scalability and configuration flexibility with the latest Intel Xeon E5 and E7 family processors. It extends the benefits of Hitachi logical partitioning to new areas of the enterprise data center and includes a choice of integrated switched-fabric networking options. Standard and double-width blade models are available with up to two CPUs in each standard-width blade, and up to four CPUs in each double-width blade.

The standard CB520H blade features the E5-2600 processor series and supports 24 slots for high-speed, DDR4-registered ECC memory DIMMs. It supports up to 768GB of shared memory when 32GB DIMM modules are used, as well as up to two hot-pluggable, front-side-accessible, serial-attached SCSI (SAS), or solid-state disk (SSD) drives, with hardware RAID.

The double-width CB540A blade uses four E5-4600 processors with 48 DIMM slots per blade. CB520H blade capabilities may be enhanced using either of two available expansion blades. These blades may be combined with a compute blade to add either storage or I/O expansion capability to the blade. These expansion blade types allow a CB 500 system to support PCIe based flash for application acceleration as well as graphics processing units (GPUs) for virtual desktop deployments.
