The HP BladeSystem c3000 Platinum Enclosure brings unique capabilities to HP BladeSystem. The c3000 is ideal for: 1) Small offices or remote sites that have limited to no IT staff. 2) Applications requiring up to eight servers per enclosure. 3) Locations that have limited rack power and cooling capacity. 4) Data centers requiring power connections to an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) or 100-120V AC wall outlets. Similar to the c7000 enclosure, the Intelligent Management through the Onboard Administrator gives you complete control of your c3000 bladed infrastructure. Each c3000 enclosure repackages the moving parts of your infrastructure cables, power supplies and fans, networking, and redundancy. The economical HP c3000 solution includes useful features that save you time, hassles, and energy, while making change quick and easy. The result— greater convenience during setup, maintenance, and daily operations.
The HP BladeSystem c3000 Platinum Enclosure goes beyond just servers. It integrates server, storage (NAS or iSCSI), networking, power/cooling, and management into a single solution that can be deployed anywhere.
The intelligent infrastructure support including Power Discovery Services allow the enclosure to communicate information to HP Intelligent PDUs (iPDU) to automatically track enclosure power connections to the specific iPDU outlet to ensure redundancy and prevent downtime.
