Bull Blade Chassis - Standard
With Bull Blade Chassis - Standard, part of Bull Blade Series, servers can be added to the data center while actually decreasing deployment and service work. Blade computing introduces a new data center paradigm where many ultra-thin compute blades share centralized resources such as power supplies, fans and network switches in a single chassis.
 
  • Expands computing power easily while reduce deployment and service work
  • Investment protection by supporting several server blade generations
  • Up to 14 novascale blade servers into one 7U chassis

    Bull Blade Chassis - Standard is a highly redundant, flexible, and easy-to-service chassis, that holds up to 14 server blades in a 7U space twice the density of rack-mounted servers. The cost of this high-density chassis is amortized over as many as 14 servers, reducing overall infrastructure and support costs.
    The system includes a Chassis Management Module that monitors temperatures and controls fan speeds to maintain an optimum operating environment. The Chassis Management Module provides full control over each blade server included in the chassis.

      Dramatically Lower Service Cost
    The Bull Blade Chassis - Standard is engineered top-to-bottom and front-to-back for easy serviceability. On the front of the chassis are 14 server blade slots that accommodate current and future compute blades. These blades slide in and out with no tools or cables. On the back of the chassis are shared components: power supplies, blowers, switches, and chassis management modules, all of which are hot-plug/hot-swap components that can be removed quickly without tools. Cabling in the Bull Blade Chassis - Standard is almost nonexistent, thanks to the use of a mid-plane to provide network, power, and KVM (keyboard-video-mouse) connections between individual blades and shared components.

      High Flexibility
    The Bull Blade Chassis - Standard forms the backbone of a flexible blade server solution. The chassis enables redundancy at almost any level to meet the availability and connectivity requirements of almost any environment.

      Extreme Availability
    There are virtually no single points of failure in the Bull Blade Chassis. All critical components such as power supplies, blowers, network switches, and management modules have redundancy options and tool-less hot-plug/hot-swap capability, which allows to swap out failed components within a minute. Even the system mid-plane is redundant, with all circuitry duplicated and redundant bus support for all power and communications. Bull Blade Series greatly expands computing power while reducing management resources
