Today, enterprises strive for a combined management platform to streamline every step of IT operations and to speed the delivery of services. A blade server provides such kind of integrated platform in an enterprise by dwelling multiple modules in a single framework. It operates as a typical stripped-down adaptive server with a modular design that saves space and energy, while refraining many of the traditional storage and I/O functionality typical of rack and standalone server systems. It consists its own processor, memory, storage, and operating system. Each blade server in a chassis acts as an independent server and can be dedicated to a single application. Tasks such as file sharing, database and application hosting, virtual server platforms hosting, audio and video content streaming can be achieved by blade servers.
A blade chassis blends, share and optimize power and cooling provision, focusing on processing power and memory on each blade resulting in multiple blades in a typical rack. Blade server results in reduced energy costs and cooling expenses, redundancy, reduced data center footprint, reduced cabling and space saving.
