IBM readies Opteron blades
Posted on: 01/25/2005 02:34 PM

The Inquirer is reporting that IBM is preparing to release Opteron-based blade servers.
The slim, hot swappable blade servers will fit into a single chassis. Each blade is an independent server, with its own processors, memory, storage, network controllers, operating system and applications. The blade server simply slides into a bay in the chassis and plugs into a mid- or backplane, sharing power, fans, floppy drives, switches, and ports with other blade servers.
