Salient Features

    "...blade-server vendors aim to enmesh customers inside a highly proprietary environment." -John Edwards, CIO Magazine

  • Our ATXBlade utilizes non-proprietary technology and will not lock you into a unwanted long-term relationship
  • Six 120 mm rear exhaust fans (88 CFM each) and strategically placed venting ports ensures a constant draft of airflow through the chassis
  • The top and bottom venting grids can be removed to create a heat chimney when the chassis is stack on top of another chassis; the heat chimney will allow the top chassis to mount a high power blower kit that will operate as a heat vacuum and provide an additional redundant source of ventilation
  • Motherboard I/O interface is front mounted, allowing easy access for cabling
  • Supports Intel 3.4 GHz P4 and 3.2 Ghz Dual Xeon processors
  • Chassis can be used as a stand-alone cabinet if not rackmounted
  • Supports 1U height ATX and MicroATX motherboards

    ATXBlade, the ideal candidate for the following applications:

    • High power multi-processor clustering
    • Rendering server farms
    • Security analysis
    • Dedicated servers
    • Web hosting
