Brand Leader Profile: Blade Server Networking

Blade Server Networking Market Overview

Blade servers are well known for the simple fact that server modules plug into a mid-plane. What many people don’t realize is that x86 blade servers from different vendors share many of the same processor, memory and storage components. Therefore, it is the highly-customized embedded networking infrastructure which defines best-in-class. Blade server leaders support the widest variety of networking protocols, the highest performance, and embed the most networking technology inside the system.

HPE BladeSystem Voted Blade Server Networking Market Leader

HPE Virtual Connect is a popular module in the HPE c-Class BladeSystem portfolio, and embodies the definition of best-in-class blade server networking. Virtual Connect technology is built right into the enclosure, which provides performance and reliability advantages over external switch configurations, and uniquely supports Ethernet, Fibre Channel and InfiniBand networks. And that’s why, for the fourth time in the last five years, HPE was voted the Market Leader for Blade Server Networking.
