Product features

Key features and benefitsHPE Superdome X offers scalability that surpasses the market, flexibility through HPE HPE nPartitions (HPE nPars), and mission critical RAS functionality. In summary:Support for up to 16 Intel Xeon Processor E7 v4 and E7 v3 family.384 DIMM slots with up to 24TB of DDR4 memory (Gen9), providing a large memory footprint for the most demanding applications.16 FlexLOM slots (Two per blade) providing LAN on motherboard configuration flexibility.24 Mezz PCIe Gen3 slots (Three per blade) for maximum IO bandwidth connectivity to LAN, SAN, and InfiniBand.Built-in shared DVDHPE nPARs: 1, 2, 3 (BL920s Gen9 blades only), 4, 6 (BL920s Gen9 (v4) blades only) or 8-blade and multiple nPARs supported for greater system reliability and licensing optimization.Error analysis engine self-heals by driving response to failures, minimizing human error.
GeneralThe HPE bladeSystem Superdome enclosure is the building block for Superdome X.Each compute enclosure supports 15 fans, 12 power supplies, associated power cords, 2 Onboard Administrator (OA) modules, 2 Global Partitioning Services Modules (GPSM), and 4 HPE Crossbar Fabric Modules (XFMs).Configurations of 1 to 8 blades can be populated in an enclosure with support for hard partitions (nPars) containing 1, 2, 31, 4, 62 or 8 blades. Multiple HPE nPars of different sizes are supported within a single enclosure.NOTE:BL920s Gen9 blades onlyBL920s Gen9 (v4) blades only
HPE bladeSystem Superdome enclosureThe enclosure can support up to eight server blades and up to eight IO Interconnect modules .
BL920s server bladeEach server blade – Has the following specifications:Includes two Intel E7 v4 or E7 v3 CPUs. The included CPU depends on which blade model is purchased.48 DIMMs slots for DDR4 memory (Gen9) or DDR3 memory (Gen8).3 Mezzanine slots (1 x8, 2 x16) PCIe gen3.2 FlexLOM slotsThe XNC2 chipset to enable smooth, High-Performance scalability from 2 to 16 sockets in addition to mission-critical class RAS features.
Partitioning packagesEach enclosure must be purchased with one of these two partitioning licenses:Basic partition license = Single partition, up to 4 blades (8s) in size = Entry configAdvanced partition license = Multiple partitions, each up to 8 blades (16s) in size.
Supported storage devicesHPE Integrity Superdome X currently supports fibre channel data connectivity and boot support with the following HPE Storage devices:HPE 3PAR StoreServ 8400/7000/7450/10000 StorageHPE MSA 2040 StorageHPE XP7 StorageHPE XP P9500 StorageHPE EVA P6000 StorageHPE EVAx400 Storage
