The Apollo a6000 Chassis provides power, cooling, and I/O infrastructure to support ProLiant XL servers and options today and for years to come. This 5U chassis holds up to 10 server trays vertically and fits in a standard rack. The Innovation Zone in the back of the chassis holds up to 10 I/O modules, with dual FlexibleLOMs supporting 1GbE or 10GbE. Power is delivered through an external 1.5U power shelf (14.4kW or 15.9kW) supporting up to 6 chassis depending on power load.

Product Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by 1reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by It allows us to use a few nodes as possible for storing log-file data so that we have as much direct space capacity as possible. Valuable Features:Apollo's most valuable features for us are its density and storage capabilities.Improvements to My Organization:We're trying to keep all log files in our Hadoop server, which amounts to several terabytes a day of locked data that we need to analyze. Apollo allows us to use as few nodes as possible for this so that we have as much direct space capacity as possible. It gives us much more space per gigabyte.Room for Improvement:It's a very good system when you need a lot of disk capacity. But it's unclear whether the performance of the IO will be sufficient when calculating the theoretical amount of time to read all the disc space. If the workload is not purely sequential, then performance in the IO is less than optimal because it's optimized for streaming processing.Deployment Issues:We have no issues with deployment.Stability Issues:We installed it in place about a week ago, and it's been running without problems.Scalability Issues:We have probably some 6,000 or 7,000 physical cells already and are planning more.Technical Support:We have technical account managers who work with us. It's pretty much a direct line to HP without having to dial the general support number.Previous Solutions:We previously used the DL380s. Compared to those, Apollo has roughly four times the amount of space per server, which means we can really do a lot. We technically could have four DL380s, but the licensing cost would have been significantly more.Initial Setup:The initial setup was straightforward, and we've been happy about it.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
