BLADE SERVER

by Ann777 In reply to BLADE SERVER

Blade servers are essentially small servers built on cards that can be plugged into a special rack, where they are stacked like dishes or like books. The rack offers a shared power supply and networking capabilities and allows customers to add servers on an as-needed basis.

Because they consume less energy and take up far less real estate, blades can drastically reduce computing costs. With blades, hundreds of servers can be crammed into a space that previously allowed room for only 84 servers. And far fewer fans are needed to dissipate the reduced heat generated by the machines.

Typically, blade servers are used for jobs such as Web site hosting.

NB
To search the "SUN" link, please remove the space embedded before the WB at the end of the link.

Also the first three paragraphs are a direct quote from the IBM link above.
