bullx blade chassis
  High density, uncompromised performance and optimized power consumption
 
bullx blade chassis
The bullx blade chassis can host up to 18 compute blades in 7U. It also contains the first-level interconnect, a management unit and all components necessary to power and cool the blades, interconnect and management unit. It is the ideal foundation to build a medium to large-scale HPC cluster, with bullx compute blades combined with R423 E2 service nodes.
 
  • 7U
