Blade Server Gen9

Hi everyone, I'm seeking for a blade server with more than 2 bays to allocate disks. I have to configure one of them with 4 hard disks. Anybody knows the correct model of HP? Thank you

AFAIK there are none at this time. Up to Gen8 you can use a storage blade with several disks inside, but there is nothing like this yet for gen9.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Hi Torsten

 

Correct, I remember a blade server with these options in the Gen8 but I cannot see anything like this in this new Gen.

 

thx

Re: Blade Server Gen9

Depending on what you plan to do with the four drives, you could install the new dual sided Solid State M.2 SATA device and use that for boot, then still have two drives plugged into the front drive bays for some other use. 

 

Alternatly, in March HP will support the D2220sb storage blade on Gen9 servers, giving you 12 additional drives for a single server, or with Virtaul SAN Appliance (VSA) software you can share storage between mutiple blade servers.
