Required parts to run C7000

Hello everybody,

I'm using Dl585 G7 with 4x amd 6276.

Due to a large amount of work I'm having now I'm thinking about switching to a C7000 with 16 blades of Bl465c G7 2x amd 6276.

I never had a blade system in my life. I have seen some used C7000 chassis on ebay with different pricing and components. 

Here is my question, Other than all fans, 6 power supply, 16 blades of bl465c, one on boarding management module. 

Is there anything else I would need in order to have it run?

I just want to install windows 10 and use it as computer/render farm. 

Please advice.

I greatly appreciate any help.

You need a kind of interconnect to provide network to the servers. There are several switches, pass-thru modules and virtual connect.


Hope this helps!

Re: Required parts to run C7000

It depends on your needs and cost.

As said, pass-thru, switches (several models) and virtual connect is possible

The C7000 quickspec will tell you the choice of modules.

Pass-thru is likely not your choice.

Switches start with an old GbE2c, but there are also some cisco and procurve models.

Better consider a pair of VC modules.

 

see section "HPE BladeSystem c-Class Network Interconnects" here
