Breakthrough Solution Enabling Open Office Deployment of Blade Servers Launched by Kell Systems


LONDON --(Business Wire)-- Kell Systems, today announced the launch of BladeVault, the first complete solution for deployment of an IBM BladeCenter S(TM), HP BladeSystem c3000(TM) or Dell PowerEdge 1955(TM), along with UPS and related network hardware, directly in the office workspace. BladeVault combines extreme noise reduction with high thermal capacity and is a very real, self-contained alternative to building a computer room. Its office-grade appearance blends seamlessly into any office workspace.



The solution represents a breakthrough for the blade server market, allowing blade manufacturers to better address the small to medium-sized business market with a solution that doesn't demand a costly, dedicated computer room. While these latest SMB-class blade servers are quieter than their Enterprise-class predecessors, many end users consider that they remain too noisy and too intrusive to install directly in the office workplace, without a solution to reduce the noise further.

BladeVault is a 24U, 19" rack enclosure that reduces server noise levels by 18.5dBA (98.5%) bringing the noise from the blade server chassis down to the level of the general office background noise. Uniquely, it is also styled to look just like office furniture.


At a time when reduced power consumption is high on many IT managers' agendas, BladeVault comes with strong green credentials too, supporting hardware thermal loads of up to 4.3kW and requiring only 84 Watts of power to do so, compared to the 3 to 4 kW needed to power the air conditioning in an equivalent computer room.

Standard specification includes dual-channel integrated power distribution, castor-type wheels, 1,300 lbs weight load capacity, washable dust filters on all air intake paths and BladeVault is delivered fully assembled and ready to go.

Kell Systems is proud to be a member of blade.org
