In the data center, many rack-mount servers perform well enough, but are reaching the point where they're proving difficult to maintain. The design of the rack is increasing the complexity of the data center, increasing the time it takes to get anything done, and reducing the overall efficiency of not only the IT professionals working there, but also of the gear.
In this guide, we'll look at the design differences between blade systems and old school racks. Why should you have to fight with rows and rows of racks, when you can simply slide a blade in and out of a simple yet sophisticated enclosure?
