Blades attack data center

Dwight Gibbs, director of technology acceleration at Capital One Financial Corp. in McLean, Va., says the combination of blade server hardware and management software allows him to deploy new Web servers in minutes, and to do automated patch management on 20 servers at once.
Appro Systems, an application service provider specializing in financial lending applications, is using high-density blades to fit the processing power of 20 servers into the space that previously held three rack-mounted servers. This allowed Appro Systems to increase the capacity of its data center from 350 to more than 600 customers, without adding space or power.
