Just noticed the news headline on IBM opening up the design of Blade Servers. It is a great development which further accelerates the adoption of already "hot trend" blade servers. This is a great news that IBM and Intel will not charge royalty or patent licensing fees for Blade Center design. They might just set a new "startup" phenomena in developing new and innovatove blades for this blade chasis and make the Blade Center design as default standard in the market place.
Recently, I was thinking about writing a blog entry about blade servers as they are the fastest growing segment with great interest from organizations with dozens of servers in their data center.
