Bull NovaScale BL465
Pay as you grow
Thanks to its capacity in memory, I/O and processor performance the novascale BL465 is ideally suited for large virtualization or database environment. With the novascale BL465, Bull provides the ability to increase capacity when needed. The BL465 is delivered with 32xDIMM slots for up to 512GB of RAM. The 16x I/O ports for 1/10Gb Ethernet or 8GB Fibre Channel provide the needed I/O headroom to respond to the highest levels of performance.
Performance for multi-threaded applications
Each of the upcoming Intel Westmere EX processors will provide between 6 and 10 cores, sharing a L3 cache. Thanks to the hyper threading functionalities into this processor, the number of threads managed per blade server can be increased to up to 64. One novascale BL465 can execute 64x threads in parallel at ones. It is particularly needed for virtualization and databases that take advantage of this enormous parallelisation performance.
