A question regarding the BL460c Gen8 product.

Question from Marc:

 

**************

 

I have been going over the QuickSpec for BL460c Gen8, and a question came to me.

 

  1. What is this: Two (2) cache slots for FBWC battery options. I was sure that battery was out of business for this option.

 

**************

 

From Jeroen:

 

*************

 

Indeed it is not clear and I have marked this for change to the QuickSpec responsible team.

 

  • The text Base sku for Configure-To-Order (CTO) build contain:  Two (2) cache slots for FBWC battery options

 

Should read in my believing: Base sku for Configure-To-Order (CTO) build contain:  Two (2) supercap placeholders for FBWC battery options\

 

Keep in mind that the BL460c Gen8 ONLY supports 1 single P220i that is mounted above the CPU.
There is no option at all to put a P420i controller into this Blade Server.

 

And they should not defined as "batteries" if they are "Super-caps".

From Kim:

 

***************

 

Good.

 

But do NOT use the word battery, if it is not a battery. It is misleading.

And from Marc:

Here’s a good document I found that explains in detail the workings of the Super-cap: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c02231971/c02231971.pdf
