SuperBlade® offers many unique advantages that differentiate it from competitors' blade products and traditional rack-mount solutions. Customer benefits include maximum density, affordability, reduced management costs, lower power consumption, optimal ROI, and high scalability - and in most applications, blade servers would reduce system acquisition costs.
While other blade suppliers only offer general-purpose blade servers, the SuperBlade® family enables full optimization for a wide array of mission-critical and compute-intensive applications. With in-house design engineering agility to accommodate customer needs rapidly, SuperBlade® revolutionizes modular computing architecture by offering several advanced application-optimized models such as Enterprise Blade Server, Data Center Optimized Blade, Workstation Blade and Office Blade.
Saving the Green
With SuperBlade® servers, you can help preserve not only our green planet, but keep red ink off your books with green cash savings. A SuperBlade server can save more than 100 watts over a traditional discrete 1U rack-mount server. These savings add up quickly when your SuperBlade chassis is fully populated with 10 servers. By eliminating the overhead in 1U discrete servers and using the high efficiency (up to 94%) power supplies, SuperBlade can save you more than $1,000 per year in power* for your servers and even more when you add the reduced cooling costs. At the same time, you will reduce your carbon dioxide emissions by over 5.5 metric tons**, the equivalent of planting 1.7 acres of trees.
* Your electricity costs will vary by location.
** According to Energy Information Agency (a statistical agency of the U.S. Department of Energy), saving one kilowatt hour of electricity reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 1.43 pounds.
