As computing power increases and technology advances we are able to fit more and more processors into less space. Blade servers allow us to get much more processing power into less rack units, saving precious IT closet real estate.
There is a very crucial concern in regard to blade servers... Cooling. All that processing squeezed into less space can create much more heat than the previous deployment models. It is critical that cooling needs be assessed prior to migrating into a blade server data center model. No longer do you need to cool an entire computer room. This cooling can be easily achieved using devices like APC InRow or InRack Air Conditioning solutions.
