Maximize Investment with Inherent Interoperability 

A part of Mercury’s flagship RES HD blade server platform, our 2U blade chassis is fully interoperable with Mercury’s other blade servers so you can “pull” blades from one chassis and “plug” into another to simplify transport, streamline deployment and maximize investment.
