Hitachi Unveils Mid-Market BladeSymphony Server

The server has as many as 10 two-socket, quad-core-processor servers per chassis, offering more cores per cubic foot than many existing blade server racks, the company says.

Hitachi on Tuesday introduced a mid-market BladeSymphony server, less than five months after launching the enterprise version.

The BladeSymphony 320 offers features that simplify management, which appeals to midsize companies and enterprise branch offices.

The 6U, 10-slot server arrives less than five months after Hitachi introduced its first enterprise-class blade server, called the BladeSymphony 1000. In introducing the model 1000, Hitachi said it would expand its long-time partnership with Microsoft in Japan to bring its new product line to North America. The 320 and 1000 run Windows Server software on Intel Xeon processors.

The BladeSymphony 320 is made as a space-saving alternative to multiple racks of rack-mount servers, according to Hitachi. The server has as many as 10 two-socket, quad-core-processor servers per chassis, offering more cores per cubic foot than many existing blade server racks. Additional features include hot-swappable fan modules with redundant fans.

The Hitachi BladeSymphony 320 is available today. Pricing was not disclosed.
