The HP ONE Services zl Module is a x86-based server module that provides two 10-GbE network links into the switch backplane. Coupled with HP-certified services and applications that can take advantage of a switch-targeted API for better performance, this module creates a virtual appliance within a zl switch slot to provide solutions for business needs, such as network security. This services module can be moved to any zl switch in the environment.
- High-performance compute platform
- Two 10-GbE connections to the switch backplane
- Two 10-GbE connections to the switch
Two 10-GbE wire-speed internal connections help ensure that the network connections from application to switch backplane will not limit the performance of the application.
- USB port
One external USB 2.0 port is available for application use - for example, external hard drives or other forms of mass storage.
- High-performance network bandwidth
Two internal wire-speed 10-GbE ports to the switch backplane.
- Redundant power supplies
The services module has the same level of power supply redundancy as the switch in which it is installed.
- Redundant network connections
Two internal 10-GbE connections are provided between the switch and the services module; applications can take advantage of both links to provide a redundant network connection to the switch backplane.
- Console port
Application console is available as a pass-through to the switch console function.
- Locator LED
It allows users to set the locator LED on a specific module to either turn on, blink, or turn off; simplifies troubleshooting by making it easy to locate a specific module among other identical or similar modules.
