Re: Cluster with C7000

Hi PJG1,

Storage blades do not apply for shared storage... When they are inserted in a blade enclosure they are allocated directly to the server next to it.

It's Direct Attached Storage in a blade format as you can see here: http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/storageworks/c-class/sb40c/index.html

It's not possible to share it between server blades.

For cheap shareable network storage you should look into iSCSI.

Re: Cluster with C7000

Thanks to all for the replies. This is my first attempt at clustering with blades and just needed some info to get started.

Re: Cluster with C7000

Bruno,

Hate to hijack Eric's thread but I need help with this. So, here's what we have. We already have a full c7000 enclosure which we have been running since the beginning of the year. We just recently purchased another c7000 with 4 bl460's and 2 GbE2c switches. What are the mininum items I would need to set up a simple cluster between 2 of the blades. Obviously shared storage, probably use iScsi, etc. I know you reccommend the bl480's, but if there is a way to get it working with the bl460's, I'm sure the boss would be happier. Thanks.
