“From a pure infrastructure perspective, the true beauty in using BladeCenter servers is that it’s extremely easy to scale up our environment without complicating network connections, SAN connections or power cabling....Being able to scale up by 14 blade servers with a ‘single box’ makes a huge difference in an ever-changing environment like the gaming industry.”
