HPE Synergy Fluid Pools

Can someone explain in basic terms how exactly compute fluid pooling works.

Can compute resources be shared across nodes? If I install a ESX on Synergy Node 1 and Node 2, and Node 1 ends up being very CPU hungry, and Node 2 is memory hungry - are the remaining resources available across the 2 nodes as a shared pool?

What’s the benefit if I can just move VMs around to balance out resource utilisation?

Re: HPE Synergy Fluid Pools


Compute fluid pooling is managing the resourcing available in the single compute and not combining two compute nodes to share resource when and as a workload increases.

But you can create multiple profile templates so that you can utilize the templates for the same compute as and when required or when there is a workload change but cannot combile resources from two different compute nodes.

Storage and fabric pooling can be performed for better optimization.
