A Boost for Blade I/O

Arthur Cole

It looks like enterprises will be getting more out of their blades than previously thought with the advent of higher I/O densities that foster greater virtualization capabilities.


Verari Systems and Xsigo Systems are pushing the envelope when it comes to I/O for blade infrastructures. The two have joined forces to develop what they call the industry's highest compute and I/O density framework, offering the ability to double the number of virtual machines that can be partitioned on each blade.


The union brings together the Verari BladeRack 2 X-Series platform with Xsigo's VP780 I/O Director to produce a tenfold increase in the number of I/O connections per blade. The combo also provides 32 storage connections and 64 network connections per blade, as well as single-console configuration, management and migration, made possible by the replacement of physical networking devices like NICs and HBAs with virtual ones.
