I am sure I have mentioned this before, but in case you missed it, there is a whitepaper up about the HS22v with some stunning specs. You can find the white paper at IBM BladeCenter HS22V Technical Introduction. The abstract is as follows.
The IBM® BladeCenter® HS22V is a two-socket blade server running the latest Intel® Xeon processors with a memory capacity of up to 144 GB with 18 DIMM sockets. It is ideal for virtualization and enterprise business applications.
And from the introduction:
The IBM BladeCenter HS22V is a high density blade that offers outstanding performance for
virtualization with new levels of memory capacity and CPU performance. The IBM
BladeCenter HS22V has been designed for outstanding performance in virtualized
environments. The HS22V is compatible with the IBM BladeCenter H, E, S, and HT chassis.
The HS22V supports up to two Intel Xeon® Processor 5500 or 5600 series multi-core
processors, 18 DIMMs modules, two 1.8-inch Solid® State Drives, two PCI Express
connectors, and one internal USB connector. The HS22V is shown in Figure1.
If you download the whitepaper, you will see charts to make your eyes bleed. Technophiles and blade-o-philes, knock yourselves out!
