HP Advanced Services v2 zl Module with HDD

Product overview

HP Advanced Services v2 zl module is a server module that is hardware compatible with VMware vSphere(R). The solution is best delivered by the HP "FlexNetwork" that unifies the data center, campus and branch across a Converged Infrastructure. The network is the key component of the HP Converged Infrastructure, the vehicle for interconnecting all enterprise systems and applications. Building on the Converged Infrastructure, HP is offering the Advanced Services v2 zl module solution that offers flexibility, scalability, and agility by enabling VMware vSphere(R) compatible virtualized software applications on the 5400/8200zl switching platforms. The HP solution converges infrastructure and delivers an open platform to host applications and dramatically simplify application deployments, centralize management, improve business productivity and reduce IT costs. VMware vSphere(R) is not included and must be purchased seperately.

  • Virtual environment for one or multiple VMware vSphere(R) compatible software applications
  • Two 10-GbE and one 1-GbE connections to the switch backplane
  • Industry-leading warranty


  • USB port — one external USB 2.0 port is available for application use (for example, external hard drives or other forms of mass storage)
  • 10 GbE connections to the switch — two 10-GbE wire-speed internal connections and one 1-GbE connection help ensure that network connections from applications to the switch backplane will not limit application performance
  • RS-232 port — can be accessed from the switch CLI for initial configuration and deployment
  • 10/100/1000Base-T LAN port — external LAN port connectivity
  • VGA port — video connectivity for a monitor

  • Memory subsystem — 16GB of DDR3-1333 ECC Dual-channel memory for quick application performance
  • Disk drive — 1 TB enterprise class SATA HDD (Hard Disk Drive) based on the model, allows quick data reads/writes to speed applications along

Resiliency and high availability

  • Redundant power supplies — services module has the same level of power supply redundancy as the switch in which it is installed
  • Fault tolerance — fault tolerance for applications running on the module is supported by VMware vSphere(R)


  • Console port — application console is available as a pass-through to the switch console function
