HPE Synergy 12000 Frame
A single intelligent physical infrastructure that combines compute, storage, and fabric
Does your IT infrastructure efficiently combine compute, storage, and networking/fabric resources with intelligence and security to meet your needs of today and tomorrow?
HPE Synergy 12000 Frames are uniquely architected as Composable Infrastructure (CI) to match the powerful 'infrastructure-as-code' capabilities of the HPE intelligent software architecture. Flexible access to compute, storage, and fabric resources allows for use and re-purposing. Linking multiple HPE Synergy Frames efficiently scales the infrastructure with a dedicated single view of the entire management network.
Creating multiple composable domains in the infrastructure can efficiently deliver available resources to the business. HPE Synergy Frames reduce complexity by using intelligent auto-discovery to find all available resources to accelerate workload deployments. This drives IT efficiency as the business grows and delivers balanced performance across resources to increase solution effectiveness.
- Supports HPE Synergy 480 and HPE 660 Gen10 Compute Modules.
- A guided installation experience is provided for setting up HPE Synergy.
- Adds 2650W HVDC hot plug power supplies as an infrastructure option.
- Product is now offered to comply with the Trade Agreements Act (TAA).
Optimize Applications and Service-levels
The HPE Synergy 12000 Frame is architected as a Composable Infrastructure (CI), which matches the flexible use of compute, storage, and network/fabric resources to an intelligent HPE management software architecture. These capabilities are presented as 'infrastructure as code' to the user.
The combination of hardware flexibility with embedded intelligence enables auto-discovery of all available resources for quick deployment and use. Management of hardware by profiles defined in software allows fast re-purposing of compute, storage and fabric resources to meet workload demands.
Operations which use a single frame can scale to large environments of multiple units. Intelligent frame link technology provides easy scaling from a single HPE Synergy 12000 Frame to multiple frames by using HPE Frame Link Modules and HPE Synergy Composer (powered by HPE OneView).
Move Faster by Accelerating Application and Service Delivery
The HPE Synergy 12000 Frame provides auto-discovery for fast deployments. The flexible design also allows you to custom-fit multiple types of compute, storage, and fabric components in a variety of configurations to meet your workload requirements.
Hardware installations are simplified by a simple step-by-step guided process and the intelligent HPE Synergy 12000 Frame design, which reduces the time to setup, debug, and check inventory during installation. A limited-access mode also guides technicians to correct installation errors.
High infrastructure bandwidth (over 16 Tb/s) helps you to perform well on today’s data-intensive applications and on next-generation, mobile-first, cloud-native applications. The design also utilizes a true passive mid-plane to assure highly-reliable operation. And it's photonics ready!
Work More Efficiently by Reducing Operational Effort and Cost
The HPE Synergy 12000 Frame monitors status for operations by automatically reporting resources, installation information, and health status of the system or domain. Status is updated by the HPE Synergy Composer management appliance (which is powered by HPE OneView) via HPE Frame Link Modules.
Updates, from a tested release set of component software, are securely handled using a dedicated data network (separate from the management network) with redundant path configurations. HPE Synergy out-of-band management provides a dedicated 10Gbps bandwidth for additional security and control.
The HPE Synergy 12000 Frame will fit in data centers with AC or DC power operations. The 10U form factor of the HPE Synergy Frame also fits in most standard racks and connects to industry standard power feeds for quick and easy installation.
Unlock Value by Increasing Productivity and Control
The HPE Synergy 12000 Frame provides fully air-gapped management (control) and data (production) networks for improved data efficiency and for management security. Separation of data and management traffic helps prevent denial-of-service attacks and increases security control.
A single management domain is able to control many HPE Synergy Frames, and still have it presented as one. This can result in significantly fewer management uplink connections in larger environments.
Every HPE Synergy 12000 Frame includes an automated cooling system with capacity to cool both today's components and tomorrow's hotter versions. The HPE Synergy design has cooling capacity with headroom so as to not limit component operation and to keep your workloads operating at peak utilization.

HPE Synergy Appliances:
HPE Synergy Composer2
Is a management appliance with HPE OneView embedded. The appliance plugs directly into the Frame to manage all Synergy resources intelligently and seamlessly. The Synergy Composer appliance integrated to the system provides:
- A single point of management for single or scaled frames, which is ideal for on-demand composability.
- Management of all frame resources through HPE OneView profiles and templates.
- Auto-Discovery of Compute, Memory, Storage and Fabrics within a Frame or across multiple connected Frames.
- Activity, Health and Power LEDs for immediate status.
Notes: The USB port is for Hewlett Packard Enterprise Certified Service Parties Only.
HPE Synergy Image Streamer
Is a management appliance that provides fast image/application changes to compute resources to meet your composable infrastructure needs. It integrates software-defined intelligence from embedded HPE Synergy Composer to rapidly deploy and update physical compute nodes with operating environments for fast virtualized image changeovers, quick updates, and image compliance. As a single point of management for single or scaled frames, Synergy Image Streamer is ideal for on-demand composability by enabling:
- Provisioning boot/run storage volumes and deployment of the OS,
- Personalization of the OS per the deployment plan,
- Automatic generation of iSCSI targets for the boot/run volume, and
- Rapid updates of compute modules with the latest images.
