HP ProCurve ONE Advanced Services zl Module - Overview

Product description

Part of the HP ProCurve ONE Program that enables secure best-in-class applications and services in the ProCurve infrastructure, the HP ProCurve ONE Services zl Module is a x86-based server module that provides two 10-GbE network links into the switch backplane. Coupled with ProCurve-certified services and applications that can take advantage of a switch-targeted API for better performance, this module creates a virtual appliance within a zl switch slot to provide solutions for business needs, such as network security. This services module can be moved to any zl switch in the environment.

Application support
  • ProCurve ONE application support: This is compatible with ProCurve ONE applications; non-ProCurve ONE applications will not run on the services module, which prevents rogue applications in mission-critical network environments.

  • ProCurve ONE applications preinstalled in downloadable form: ProCurve ONE applications come with their own OS (which may vary depending on the specific application) and are already installed on the OS as part of the application download; as a result, installation of the application on the services module is a straightforward and simple process, avoiding complicated installations into the OS that are typical of other downloaded application environments.

  • ProCurve ONE API assistance: ProCurve ONE applications can get switch software and ASIC assistance through programmatic calls to the ProCurve ONE API; additional performance, configuration, and management assistance will be available to these applications over time.

Connectivity
  • Two 10-GbE connections to the switch: Two 10-GbE wire-speed internal connections help ensure that the network connections from application to switch backplane will not limit the performance of the application.

  • USB port: One external USB 2.0 port is available for application use - for example, external hard drives or other forms of mass storage.

Performance
  • High-performance network bandwidth: Two internal wire-speed 10-GbE ports to the switch backplane.

  • High-performance processor system: An Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 Processor with 2.2 GHz, 4MB cache provides a high-performance compute environment in a small footprint - a single switch slot.

  • Memory subsystems: 4GB of DDR2-667 dual-channel memory provide for quick application performance.

  • Disk drive: 250GB SATA II 7200 rpm hard disk drive (210GB application space plus 40GB diagnostic/maintenance space) allows quick data read/writes to speed applications along.

Resiliency and high availability
  • Redundant power supplies: The services module has the same level of power supply redundancy as the switch in which it is installed.

  • Redundant network connections: Two internal 10-GbE connections are provided between the switch and the services module; applications can take advantage of both links to provide a redundant network connection to the switch backplane.

Security
  • Signed/Licensed applications only: Only ProCurve ONE Applications, which are signed and licensed through ProCurve and the application provider, can run on the services module.

  • Applications are certified: ProCurve ONE applications go through certification testing against negative switch effects through API calls or malicious behavior - providing reasonable assurance that applications are well-behaved in the switch and network environment.

Manageability
  • Console port: Application console is available as a pass-through to the switch console function.

Ease of use
  • Locator LED: Allows users to set the locator LED on a specific module to either turn on, blink, or turn off; simplifies troubleshooting by making it easy to locate a specific module among other identical or similar modules.
