Product Information

Full Description

Details

The BL680c G7 provides maximum performance and unparalleled scale-up expansion never before seen in a 4P x86 blade. This creates an extremely powerful database engine while handling very demanding workloads and making traditional 4P rack to blade transition a true reality. The ProLiant BL680c G7 supports the E7-4800 family and E7-8867L processors. Four 130W processors are supported with 64 RDIMM slots for 2.0TB of memory, 7 PCIe Gen2 I/O slots, and 6 10Gb FlexFabric CNA ports for standard Ethernet to advanced networking. By designing a balanced architecture, the server is a very unique 4P blade offering ensuring all subsystems are used effectively. Traditional 4P blades are often unbalanced, providing CPU performance and density at the expense of proportional memory and I/O bandwidth. These server often fail when faced with larger databases, higher-density virtualisation and general data-intensive applications.

Never Before Seen Multiprocessor Scalability in a Blade Server

Four hot-plug SAS/SATA/SSD bays for up to 4.0 TB of internal storage powered by a high performance Smart Array P410i 6Gb controller for RAID 0 and 1 standard and optional flash backed write cache options to 1 GB with RAID 1+0, 5, and 6 capability. 60 Gb of embedded FlexFabric ports and seven (7) I/O expansion slots bring the total maximum I/O bandwidth to 192 Gb supporting up to 273 VMs. Up to four top performing Intel Xeon E7-4800 processors each up to 130 watts deliver maximum computing power. World's first 4P server blade to support a two terabytes of memory providing the ultimate database machine, ability to handle very large consolidation projects and a variety of data-demanding workloads.

Six Embedded HP Virtual Connect 10Gb FlexFabric Adapters

Six embedded NC553i 10Gb Converged Network Adapter ports deliver extensive bandwidth for network intensive applications with up to Up to 24 connections to network and storage without the need for add-in I/O mezzanine cards. Ability to utilize the adapter high-end FlexFabric features or configure than as standard 1Gb or 10Gb Ethernet ports. Integrated Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and hardware-based iSCSI with iSCSI boot simplify management and lower infrastructure costs by converging LAN and SAN traffic over the same flexible connection.

Fully Balanced, Optimised Intel Xeon 4S Architecture

The Intel Xeon E7-4800 processor family represent Intel's greatest performance leap in history over the previous generation Intel Xeon 4-core 7400 series. Rather than provide a processor-heavy design, the BL680c G7 fully optimises all the capabilities of the E7-4800 multiprocessor 4S architecture. Each socket includes the maximum allowable two memory controllers that each have two Intel Scalable Memory Interface (SMI) buses. Each SMI connects to a memory buffer that supports four 16 GB DIMMs for a total of 16 DIMMs per processor socket (64 DIMMs or up to 2.0 TB of memory per server). With major advances in processor performance, applications are already memory and I/O bound, not processor. Yet, typical server blades are often unbalanced, providing processor performance and density at the expense of proportional memory capacity, I/O bandwidth, and storage. Each socket supports 130 watts allowing up to four maximum performing E7-4800 processors.

Making Multiprocessor Server Rack to Blade Transition a True Reality

Performance, memory, and I/O slot expandability equal to or greater than a typical 4P x86 rack server. Reduce rack space up to 58%. Consolidate four standard 4P rack servers and eight high performance LAN/SAN edge switches (that can occupy up to 24U) into a single 10U c7000 enclosure. Radically simplify system design and lower cost by eliminating all rack server to edge switch cables and decrease power cables to no more than six. The HP BladeSystem enclosures also eliminate individual server management cables, consolidating them into just one (or two for redundancy) even further simplifying system design.

  • How are your prices so low?

    At King of Servers we conduct regular price checks to maintain an up to date view on our pricing in relation to our online competitors. We aim to ensure our products are always priced as keenly as possible across our entire catalogue.

    Since it’s impossible to keep tabs on everyone, we offer a Price Match Challenge . If you find a better price elsewhere, we'll do our very best to match it.

    We're not as big as some of our competitors so we have to try harder to win your business and this means offering better prices and better service levels. We’re also fortunate to have smaller overheads than some of our larger competitors and this, coupled with our buying power allows us to secure volume related discounts from our established global network of suppliers. These savings are ultimately reflected in the prices of our products.

    Cheaper doesn't always mean better though, read our blog and watch out for the common pitfalls

Are we out on price?

We check our prices daily against a wide range of competitors to try to bring you the best deal. However, if you've spotted a better price offered by one of our competitors, please let us know and we'll do our very best to match it.

Price Match Challenge

Is the advertised price & availability genuine?

The IT sector is littered with companies who don't hold stock. Their websites advertise products that are sourced from third party suppliers. Pricing and availability data on such sites is typically retrieved from files or feeds which are often not refreshed regularly enough. The result? Cancelled orders, long lead times and disgruntled customers.

King of Servers is a major stockholder with full transparency into our stockholding and pricing. Our website is refreshed on a 15-minute cycle 24/7 so the pricing and availability you see online is both accurate and reliable.

We recommend you double check a cheaper price elsewhere is accurate and based on physical stock that can be shipped immediately before placing your order.

Do they really have the product in stock?

We show true stock counts on our website, not woolly messages like ‘in stock' or ‘available to order'. Stock levels are updated every 15 minutes 24/7 so you can see exactly how many units we have sat in our warehouse available for immediate despatch.

And speaking of shipping, did you know we offer same day deliveries? You can choose this or other timed services during checkout on our website or contact our sales team for a quote. Handy when you need the goods in a hurry!

Do they specify product condition?

Most web stores fail to specify the stock condition of the products they advertise for sale. It seems reasonable to assume that all products are brand new, unused units supplied in the sealed, original manufacturer packaging and protected by the full warranty but this isn't always the case.

A heavily discounted price can be a sign that the product in question may be a used or refurbished unit. Open/damaged box and ‘ex demo' units are also rife in the marketplace and warranty cover on such goods will be variable so it's wise to check what you're getting before committing to any purchase.

King of Servers displays the product condition on all our product pages. As well as detailing what the condition means, we specify the level of warranty condition allowing you to make an informed buying decision.

Ensure you compare like for like when shopping around for prices online.

Is the product covered by warranty?

All brand new products come with a full manufacturer warranty, right? Not always; it depends where the products were sourced from. You may have heard of the grey market or parallel imports? Manufacturers often stipulate the geographical regions in which their products are designated for sale. Unscrupulous suppliers seek to source goods from outside of these regions at cheaper costs which they pass on via cheaper prices. The downside is that the manufacturer might not honour the warranty in the event of a support call. Grey kit does not qualify for warranty support and if it fails, you could be significantly out of pocket.

All products offered for sale at King of Servers are sourced from legitimate channels and are covered by warranty. For added peace of mind, we can supply serial numbers up front which can be validated on the manufacturer's website to ensure warranty cover is in place prior to purchase.

Ask any potential supplier if they can supply serial numbers ahead of purchase. Any legitimate stockholder who has sourced the goods from the proper channels should be able and happy to do so.

Is the competitor trustworthy?

Look beyond the price and establish whether the company behind the product is a bona fide organisation that you can return to should you encounter issues down the line. This is particularly important if you've never heard of them before. It's relatively easy to set up a web shop nowadays which makes it difficult to differentiate between a one-man band operating out of a home office and a well-established, reputable bricks and mortar business. Sales T&Cs, returns policy and aftercare service are probably important areas for you to consider.
