Server Sprawl No More
Dell PowerEdge M1000e modular blade enclosure
It's easy to lose control of blade servers if they just keep getting plugged into a cabinet without thought for cooling, power and space. The Dell PowerEdge M1000e modular blade enclosure aims to slow server sprawl. The 10U modular enclosure holds up to 16 half-height blade servers, keeping your computing power tightly bundled. The M1000e offers a pair of power supply options. Your choice of three (non-redundant) or six (redundant) 2360 watt hot plug power supplies can be customized to max out efficiency.
The chassis comes standard with nine hot pluggable, redundant fan modules to keep the blades cool and energy costs low. Combine power and cooling with a front control panel that can accommodate two USB keyboard/mouse connection and a video connection (Avocent iKVM switch not included) and you have a pretty well self-contained blade server chassis that provides efficiency on the floor and in the energy bill.
