IBM BladeCenter Servers and Parts

With the need for data storage increasing rapidly the capital cost, physical space, power & cooling costs and setup requirements can soon mount up. Blade servers can help overcome these problems by offering all the functional components of a traditional server but with a modular design that is optimised to minimise its physical size and energy usage.

Additionally, they allow for reduced complexity and simplified, centralised management due to the fact that they share resources such as switches and interface cards. When used in conjunction with virtualisation they can provide the framework for a future-proof data center.
