Bull Blade Chassis
All Bull Blade Chassis are highly redundant, flexible, and easy-to-service. They hold up to 14 Escala™ and/or NovaScale™ blade servers each. The cost of these high-density chassis is amortised over as many as 14 servers, reducing overall infrastructure and support costs.
 Bull Blade Chassis - Enterprise
The Bull Blade Chassis - Enterprise provides performance optimization and increased energy efficiency. It is one of the strengths of Bull’s Bio Data Center, a new approach of the Data Center combining performance, flexibility and sustainable development.
The blade chassis integrates both NovaScale blade servers based on Intel® Xeon® processors and Escala blade servers based on POWER 6 thus providing a modular solution for Windows, Linux & AIX environments. It is the ideal platform for demanding environments in terms of performance, space occupancy and energy efficiency.
The highly integrated and modular architecture of the Bull Blade Chassis - Enterprise delivers a high level of flexibility, scalability and easy management in order to cope with variable workloads. The blade chassis is optimized for existing IT environments; in addition, it is ready for the last generation applications in order to protect the enterprise investment.
Lower cost of ownership
The innovative architecture of the Bull blade chassis provides a high density and performance: it contains 14 NovaScale or Escala blade servers, i.e. 56 bi-processors in a standard rack (9U). In addition, by providing shared resources such as power supplies, cooling and networking module the blade chassis is much more energy-efficient than rack-optimized or tower servers, for the same performance level. With this advantage combined with a lower heat dissipation many more servers can be installed while complying with the power and cooling limits. Moreover, the innovative design of the chassis reduces the number of cables by 80% thus contributing to cutting down the cost of ownership of this solution.
More powerful functionalities
The Bull Blade Chassis - Enterprise offers added performance capabilities of 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and 4X InfiniBand-capable fabrics and larger power supplies-making it the ideal platform to run the next-generation, high-performance business-critical applications.
Fast deployment
With Bull’s R@ck’n RollTM offer, solutions such as Escala EL servers, NovaScale blade systems and StoreWay sub-systems, are integrated in a rack. They are cabled, assembled, integrated and tested at Bull in order to be ready to use on the customer site. This is a time saving offer therefore contributing to reducing costs.
