Join Ed Liberman for an in-depth discussion in this video Blade technology, part of CompTIA Server+ (SK0-004) Cert Prep: 2 Server Architecture.
- [Narrator] Now when it comes to server form factors,…there is one more that I would like to talk to you about,…and that is one called the blade technology,…or blade server.…Now this technology consists of a server chassis…which is housing multiple thin modular circuit boards,…which are known as server blades.…Each blade or card can contain processors, memories,…integrated network controllers and other input output ports.…
Now, we use this blade technology…because servers can experience as much as 85% reduction…in cabling for blade installations…over a conventional 1U Rack Mount server…or a tower server.…Now, blade technology also uses much less space…than you would find in a rack mount solution,…which is even less typically than a tower solution.…
So I mentioned this chassis, which is housing all…of these different server blades.…Well, this is what's known as the blade enclosure, okay,…and this is the system that has the ability…to house multiple blade servers.…The chassis of this enclosure will also provide power…
