MicroBlade™ – Power Supplies and Cooling
One of the biggest benefits of moving to a blade environment is the relocation of power supplies and fans into a single chassis versus an individual set in each server. This greatly helps reduce the power requirements on a per server basis.
Underlining Supermicro's high-efficiency power philosophy into the MicroBlade server technology, Supermicro engineers have mastered the power supply design challenge to produce high-quality, high-performance solutions with peak efficiency ratings of 96%. Supermicro solutions continue to outperform and outlast the competition and providing the best technology investment available to customers.
