Ordering Instant Capacity Cell Board

  Table of Contents


To order the Instant Capacity Cell Board product you need to do the following:

  • Order the appropriate HP product number for the cell board for your specific class of HP server.

  • Order the appropriate HP product number for the entire amount of Instant Capacity memory on the cell board.

  • Order the appropriate HP product numbers and quantities of Instant Capacity processors for the number of additional cores to activate on the cell board (see “Instant Capacity Cell Board and Considerations of Core Usage Rights” for more details about core usage rights).

NOTE: It is highly recommended that you have the same number of processors/cores and amount of memory on all cell boards in a given hard partition (nPartition). For optimum performance, each nPartition should have cell boards with identical numbers of processors/cores and amounts of memory (otherwise, the system performance can be unpredictable).

Rules for ordering memory ensure that the Instant Capacity cell board matches the amount of memory in the other cell boards in a given nPartition.
