Configuring blade solutions
Blade servers are very compact servers. Many components have been removed to save space, minimize power consumption, and other considerations. Power and cooling supply is handled by the enclosure instead.
A blade enclosure can be mounted in a rack and contains a number of bays in which the blade servers (also referred to as blades) are placed. Bays and blade servers can be half-height or full-height, single-width or double-width.
The standard genome library installed with the application contains the most commonly used blade products. You can configure any additional blades and blade enclosures that you use, setting the number of bays and bay height and width (in any combination).
