  • HP Blades - 680 and 480 ?

    A potential new client has purchased 2 reconditioned blade servers - a BL480C and a BL680C-G5.

    They do not have existing Blade chassis.

    Can we use both of them in the same chassis, even though they are different generations ?

      According to the HP website the c7000 enclosure should support both BL480c and BL680c Blades

      For those that don't want to open the site:

      Originally posted by HP
      Q1. How many Blades are supported in the c7000 Enclosure?
      A1. Up to 16 Half-Height c-Class Blades or 8 Full-Height c-Class Blades, or a mix of half and full-height blades.
      Q2. Will the c7000 Enclosure support anything other than Server Blades?
      A2. Yes the c7000 Enclosure currently supports the SB40c Storage Blade, HP StorageWorks Ultrium Tape Blades and PCI Expansion Blade. Future Blades will provide additional capabilities and processor support beyond the existing c-Class Server & Storage Blades.

      Hope this helps..

        Both c3000 and c7000 enclosures can hold your both servers (based on personal experience and HP products' database). They are both 2U form factor.
        What about the other equipment? Interconnect? Ethernet? Fans? Power supplies?
