IBM Takes Blades to the Office

IBM Takes Blades to the Office

IBM BladeCenter S, designed for small and medium businesses and distributed enterprises, is the only blade solution truly able to run in an office or store. BladeCenter S can enable clients to reduce energy bills by 25 percent, cut noise in the office in half, and run desk-side instead of in a data center.

With new, industry-first shared storage, clients can share data across all blade servers in the system and run any application they want on BladeCenter S. It's no surprise then that over 4,000 retail stores will run operations on BladeCenter S by the holiday season.

    IBM’s introduction of a slimmer new blade system will provide smaller firms a solution optimized for their business, breaking the cycle of adding low-end servers each time they need to support a new function or purchasing enterprise-level systems too large and costly for their needs.
