BladeCenter® integrates server, storage, and networking functionality with technology exchange and heterogeneous management. BladeCenter offers the ease, density, availability, affordability, and scalability that are central to the blade technology promise.

Blade servers captured industry focus because of their modular design. This design can reduce costs with a more efficient usage of valuable floor space, and their simplified management, which can speed up such tasks as deploying, reprovisioning, updating, and troubleshooting hundreds of blade servers. In addition, blade servers provide improved performance by doubling current rack density. By integrating resources and sharing key components, costs are reduced and availability is increased.

This Lenovo Press publication is a reference to compatibility and interoperability of components inside and connected to BladeCenter solutions. This paper is intended for IT professionals looking for compatibility and interoperability information of BladeCenter solution components.
