Customers benefits includes maximum Affordability, reduced management costs, Lower power consumption, Optimal ROI, and And in most applications, Cepoint Blade Servers even reduce the acquisition cost.

Space Optimization. Cepoint Blade Server is housed within a 19" industry rack. The servers Reduce server footprint in the data center. Power, cooling and networking devices are removed From each individual server and positioned to the rear of system thereby reducing the required Amount of space. The system takes up to ten blades in a 7U, compared to the 10U of rack space That ten 1U blades would normally require as individual units. Cepoint Blade provides about 40% Improved density with up to 60 total servers in a 42 rack Virtual Connect- Simplify, and make your data center change-ready.

The system greatly simplifies the cabling process by aggregating cabling of ten servers at once. Up to 70% of network,power and KVM cabling required for ten 1U servers are reduced by moving Blade servers in one unit. These cabling reduction continues across networking, SAN connectivity, And management controllers. Reducing the number of cables speeds up deployment of the system and helps reduce troubleshooting to the blade system.

To protect customer's investment, each blade module is fully upgradeable for future CPUs. The common system architecture ensures each blade is fully interchangeable as well.

The system provides total remote control of individual blade, power supplies,cooling fans,and Networking switches remotely. Systems administrators can enjoy the management ease and Reassurance of continuous onboard instrumentation monitoring(temperature sensors,power Status,voltage and fan speed) Remote power control capabilities to reboot and/or reset the Server as well as remote access to the BIOS configuration and operating system console Information via SOL(serial over LAN) or embedded KVM capabilities.
