Can we achieve Hardware Level Mirroring from Blades .. ?

Dear All,

We have a urgent requirement as follows :

1. Can we "HARDWARE Level MIRROR" two blade server's (Model BL20p) ...... ?
Eg. Something like software clustering, but in Hardware / Blade enclosure level clustering.

2. Can we LOAD BALANCE two blade servers on same enclousure "Hardware Level" .... ?

3. Can we connect a blade system to an existing HP Storage EVA system .... ?

Pls be kind enough to send us details or URL's related to this ....

Thanks,

Thiwanka.
IT is Great !

No, you cannot cluster / load balance blades on the hardware level.

Each blade has its own identity & resources with the exception of common power & communication infrastructure. Hence you can treat them as rack servers, which means you need all 'traditional' tools for clustering and / or load balancing.
