Blade Servers

Blade servers are designed for high-density data storage, reducing space requirements and lowering storage costs. Blade servers contain processing hardware, but must be housed in a blade enclosure, which can hold multiple blades that provide services such as power, cooling, networking, various interconnects and management. Together, they form the blade system. Blade servers are usually hot-swappable, meaning repairs can take place while the system is running, reducing the incidence of system interruptions or failures.
