  • This deck is for use at: Momentum Web cast: Optimize Your IT Environment with an HP BladeSystem Solution  Come learn how Windows-based blade servers can help your business manage its information technology (IT) infrastructure. Blade servers provide benefits to deployment of modular architectures and the management of your information technology (IT) infrastructure.  Learn not only what blade servers and their benefits are, but also see adoption scenarios that help you determine whether blade servers are right for your business.    HP engineers will provide a blade server overview, discuss manageability of blade servers using MOM and HP System Insight Manager, and provide example architectures of Microsoft applications on blade servers.   Al Jimenez has been with HP for 16 years where he is a senior engineering manager in the Microsoft Solutions engineering organization. His team is responsible for Microsoft Internet Business solutions for HP. Al has designed and developed hardware and software, authored technical papers and presentations on Microsoft software and technology, and has presented at many Microsoft and HP customer events. He lives and works in Houston, Texas. [Enter any extra notes here; leave the item ID line at the bottom] Avitage Item ID: {{30BFFBDC-FC9D-47D3-8BDE-147671B24069}}

  • Who should consider Blades?
    • A blade server infrastructure is ideal for businesses that are:
      • Wrestling with space restrictions
      • Faced with information technology (IT) resource limitations
      • Dealing with budgetary constraints
      • Preparing for growth
      • Planning an IT consolidation
    • Why Blades Now?
      • An evolutionary path to simplification of IT
      • Foundational simplification of IT infrastructure
      • This is what customers want, this is customer driven
  • What is a Blade System/Server anyway? Components of a blade system Server blades Enclosures Power & cooling Storage Interconnect kits Management software
    • A blade system:
    • A system of servers sharing interconnects for power, network, and storage resources
    • Provides an infrastructure for physical consolidation and modular IT architectures
    • Provides for unified management and application of IT business resources
    • A blade server:
    • A compact, high-density server that has its own CPU(s) and memory
    • Shares cables, switches, power, and storage with other blade servers in an enclosure
  • HP BladeSystem benefits After Before Hewlett-Packard (HP) BladeSystem solutions can help mid-sized businesses operate efficiently, grow flexibly, and control costs
    • Greatly simplifies multi-server environments
    • Is easier to manage than rack-based systems
    • Integrates computing, storage, power, and network resources
    • Is more versatile and scalable than rack-based systems
    • Integrates easily with existing infrastructure
  • HP BladeSystem benefits After Before
    • Benefits for lab deployments:
    • No more keyboard, mouse, and monitor required for every server
    • No more Keyboard Video Mouse (KVM) switches, no more KVM cables
    • No more network cabling nightmares
    • No more power and power cabling nightmares
    • No more server rack mounting problems
    • No more server identification problems
    • No more manual CD installs
  • HP BladeSystem benefits
    • Only HP BladeSystem and HP ProLiant servers provides ‘remote desktop’ capabilities without the operating system installed using HP iLO technology
    • This along with
      • HP Systems Insight Manager (HP SIM)
      • Microsoft® Windows® remote desktop and
      • Microsoft® Operations Manager (MOM)
    • requires:
    • One and only one management console
    • … from bare metal components to a fully functional server infrastructure
