    Overview
    HP ProLiant BladeSystem share power, cooling, network, and storage infrastructure via the blade enclosure. Since equipment is not needed for each server, you get a dramatic reduction in power distribution units, power cables, LAN and SAN switches, connectors, adapters, and cables. And you can add the newest-generation technologies by simply changing individual components.

    Oracle's Sun Blade 6000 chassis is designed to support a wide range of application environments by integrating Oracle's x86 and SPARC server modules with high capacity networking and storage modules. This extremely eco-efficient and flexible blade enclosure provides a solid foundation for the most demanding workloads. Controlled by a single system management interface, the balanced architecture of the Sun Blade 6000 chassis provides an open, standards-based infrastructure for virtualized business applications, IT infrastructure, middleware, workload consolidation and databases.
