Housed within a 19" industry-standard rack, SuperBlade servers reduce server footprint in the data center. Power, cooling and networking devices are aggregated in the rear of the chassis which optimizes the required amount of space.
Up to 10 TwinBlade (20 nodes) can be installed in a 7U chassis. Compared to the 20U of rack space that twenty 1U servers would normally require as individual servers, the SuperBlade provides more than 50% density savings with 120 nodes and 24 switches in a 42U rack..Cable Reduction
The SuperBlade server chassis enclosure greatly simplifies the cabling process by aggregating cabling of ten servers at once. Up to 90% of network, power, and KVM cabling required for ten 1U servers are reduced by moving to blade servers in a single chassis. These cabling reductions continue across networking, SAN connectivity, and management controllers.
