Re: C7000

Have a look:

http://h17007.www1.hp.com/us/en/enterprise/servers/bladesystem/index.aspx#.Uvy5LYXjvvM

HP calls it "future-proof" and in fact this is an excellent piece of technology... but you did not tell about the blade server you are going to get ...


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: C7000

hi,

 

the BL460c Gen8 is the current Intel half height c-Class Bladeserver on the market.

I'm sure you can buy this model at least until summer next year! (no guarantee though)

After that you will get spare parts at least for the next 5 years!

 

Heres an HP statement about the c-Class architecture:

HP remains committed to the c-Class architecture and plans to offer c-Class through at least 2016.
There is no end-of-life (EOL) date set for c-Class at this point in time. Our current plans are to
support the c-Class portfolio with spares for at least 5 years after the cessation of selling
individual c-Class products.

 

Regards,

Ville
