The new ProLiant BL45p four-processor server blade designed for enterprise availability and mission-critical applications features AMD Opteron 800 series processors, SAN storage capability, and four gigabit NICs standard. The BL45p also shares the same infrastructure components as all other p-Class server blades.

The new ProLiant BL45p delivers optional Fibre Channel support for SAN implementations and clustering capabilities.

Fibre Channel capability is achieved using a Dual Port Fibre Channel Mezzanine Card (2Gb) specifically designed for the ProLiant BL45p. The ProLiant BL45p is optimized for HP StorageWorks and is also compatible with a variety of third party storage vendors.
