When converging a data centre, up-time and application availability is critical. Only IBM® BladeCenter® is designed for no single point of failure with redundant power and I/O connections to the blades and switches, redundant hot-swap power supplies, blowers, and management modules. And by supporting up to 14 blades per BladeCenter H or E chassis compared to the eight to10 from some competitors, IBM BladeCenter enables you with fewer chassis, switches and cables to manage1.
IBM BladeCenter S
The BladeCenter S chassis is designed for an office environment. Running off standard office power and incorporating noise dampening and dust filters, the BladeCenter S can reside deskside in your small office or branch office while providing many of the same enterprise-level capabilities as the rest of the BladeCenter ecosystem.
IBM BladeCenter E
The BladeCenter E is designed for energy efficiency and density to help you manage costs in your datacentre. The 7U high chassis supports up to 31 percent more processors than blade competitors in a standard 42U rack with 14 blades and four switch modules5. And the energy efficient design is capable of using significantly less power than competitive blade chassis.
IBM BladeCenter H
The BladeCenter H chassis is designed to deliver outstanding performance and energy efficiencies the competition can't match.
And with a mainframe-inspired architecture supporting a range of flexible high-speed interconnects and extensive virtualisation, the BladeCenter H chassis provides an enterprise foundation on which to deploy your business-critical applications confidently.
IBM BladeCenter HT
With AC and DC power supply options, ruggedised construction and compliance with the rigorous NEBS-3-ETSI standards, the BladeCenter HT chassis is designed to support demanding next-generation, high-performance core telecom network applications.
