IBM BladeSystem and IBM Blades background:
IBM is an innovator when it comes to Blade server technology , providing its customers with reliability, security and efficient performance. Innovative blade servers from IBM ensure support at large and small sized organizations alike and provide standard services for unique demands of businesses in almost all industries. IBM’s blade server architecture is based on the ‘IBM BladeCenter’ blade chassis.
IBM BladeCenter History
Work on these servers began in 1999 and the product line was introduced to the market in 2002, which was in fact somewhat late to the blade market. Out of the gate, they supported a wide range of x86 Intel processors and I/O options, which were different than the previously available blade servers in market. BladeCenter H, having switch capabilities for InfiniBand and 10 Gb Ethernet, was introduced by IBM at the start of 2006.
5 major versions of IBM BladeCenter (blade server architecture):
- IBM BladeCenter (E): 14 blade slots in 7U, upgraded power supplies, management modules, 2 slots for gigabit Ethernet switches - IBM BladeCenter T: This version was for telecommunication companies, 8blade slots in 8U remaining features are same as previous version. - IBM BladeCenter H: 14 blades in 9U, Backward compatible switches and blades, upgraded power suppliers and blowers.. - IBM BladeCenter HT: telecommunication version of BladeCenter H, 12 Blades in 12U, remaining features are same as BladeCenter H. - IBM BladeCenter S: 6 blades in 7U, 4 hot-swappable blowers, 2 optional disk storage devices.
