Product Description
PRIMERGY BladeFrame BF400 S2 are extremely reliable, high-availability systems and are very suitable for mid-volume and high-end requirements in business-critical IT projects. The BF400 S2 chassis houses up to 24 Processing Blades (pBlades), redundant Control (cBlades) and Switch Blades (sBlades). The system contains a built-in BladePlane which provides the physical connections for the I/O of the Processing Blades as well as the communication to the network, the storage systems and the power distribution. PRIMERGY BladeFrame systems combine the benefits of stateless servers with powerful virtualization and management software which virtualizes the processor, storage and network resources. Systems can thus be configured within only a few minutes. This architecture means that a pool of servers can be created instead of allocating dedicated applications to a system For more detailed information please refer to the data sheet at:
