Summary
Blade server systems and virtualization are key building blocks for Next Generation Enterprise Data centers Blades offer modular, pre-wired, ultra high-density servers (up to 10x traditional servers) with shared components (power, cooling, switches) - reducing complexity and cost, and improving flexibility, availability, manageability, and maintainability Virtualization enables consolidation of physical servers by allowing many virtual servers to run concurrently on one physical server - improving system utilization, reducing the total number of physical servers, reducing cost
