A blade server is a server with a limited number of components with the modular design for minimizing both the space and also the energy consumed by it. It is a cost effective approach with little maintenance and also support cost.
Blade Server Technology Module Design:
Chassis is referred as a module with some empty slots where modules can be added like front end modules or even add-on modules based on the requirement. The major component of the module includes the processors, the usage of RAM, the hard disk and much more.
The modules include common power supply modules, and also the cooling modules or the common fan modules, for storage requires the storage module, for input and output operations requires the input/output related expansion module.
Components of Blade Server Technology:
The components of the blade server are placed in chassis. The chassis is capable of holding a number of server blades. These blades are used based on the requirement and according to the user convenience. When we speak about the Intel, it is capable of holding around 30 servers. The component includes the blade of the server, management blade and also the blade of the switch. There the management blade is capable of managing the blades. The major issue with the blade servers includes the managing of blades itself.
We can conclude that blade server with the modular design is used for minimizing both the space and also the energy consumed. It is a cost effective approach with little maintenance and also support cost.
