BladeCenter H Chassis
The IBM BladeCenter H Chassis is the higher power older brother of the E Chassis. It has a capacity for 14 blades however it is 9U tall. That extra space allows for a lot more performance! The H Chassis provides room for up to 10 I/O modules and also include a standard management module with an option for redundancy. Module bays 7, 8, 9 and 10 are specifically designed for high speed throughput but can be adapted to use regular I/O modules as well. This enclosure comes standard with two power supplies; a third and fourth must be added when installing blades beyond the first 7. All H Chassis blade enclosures are compatible with all IBM BladeCenter blade models.
Highlights of the IBM H Chassis enclosure include its high performance, energy efficiency, and versatility to run demanding applications in large data centers. Providing more than a 12 percent improvement on performance per watt when compared to competitors, the H Chassis reduces energy consumption with highly-efficient power supplies to save on the energy bill. With features including open and easy management tools, Predictive Failure Analysis, advanced cooling technology, and a high-availability midplane, the IBM H Chassis enclosure provides investment protection, cost and energy savings, and simplified management.
