How to Choose the Right Supermicro Blade Server
Supermicro Blade servers provide some advantages over the more common rack server. One major advantage is its space-to-computing-power ratio. For example, a Blade server running in a high-density computing environment may use 2-3x fewer racks than a traditional rack server.
Another advantage of the Blade server chassis design is deployment. Blade servers typically have unified network cables, which means you don’t need engineers to cable each blade. This makes the Blade server easier to deploy and maintain.
How do you know if Blade servers are right for you? While Blade servers provide excellent density for their size and ease of installation, they can be less flexible in other ways. For example, if the user doesn’t want to leverage the Blade server’s cluster mode, it will be much less capable than rack servers.
Additionally, rack servers typically come with at least double the number of memory slots than a Blade server. There are pros and cons to choosing a Blade server, but the choice comes down to your unique needs. Our team can help you find the right server and design to meet your goals.
