MicroBlade™ – Enclosure

Space Optimization

Housed within a 19" industry-standard rack, MicroBlade servers reduce server footprint in the data center. Power, cooling and networking devices are aggregated in the rear of the chassis which optimizes the required amount of space.

Up to 28/14 Blade (112/56 nodes) can be installed in a 6U/3U enclosure. Compared to 1U rack mount servers, the MicroBlade provides up to 95% space savings.

Cable Reduction

The MicroBlade server chassis enclosure greatly simplifies the cabling by aggregating cabling of servers together. Up to 99% of network, power, and KVM cabling required for ten 1U servers are reduced by moving to blade servers in a single chassis. These cabling reductions continue across networking, SAN connectivity, and management controllers.

Reducing the number of cables speeds up the deployment of servers and helps reduce troubleshooting issues by presenting fewer physical connections to the servers.
