product details

The Egenera BladeFrame platform, with its Processing Area Network (PAN) architecture, assembles purpose-built hardware and virtualization software in a fully integrated computing system that enables enterprise-class datacenters to lower total cost of ownership and achieve sustainable competitive advantage.

The system combines the scalability of blade servers and the price/performance of commodity components with mainframe-class functionality, enabling customers to leverage Linux and Microsoft Windows for mission-critical applications.

The BladeFrame creates a pool of up to 24 Egenera Processing Blade™ resources that are deployed and managed entirely through Egenera PAN Manager™ software. Processing power can be dynamically increased, decreased and reallocated to support new applications or accommodate variable demand on existing applications without purchasing, installing or managing incremental equipment.

Processing Blades are available in dual-processor and four-processor configurations based on x86, AMD64 Opteron and Intel EM64T technologies. Configurations based on dual-core technology are also available.
