3U Rugged Blade Chassis

Cost-Effective High-Density Computing with Six Server Blades

Our field-proven, 3U chassis has a 15-year lifespan and can fit up to six multi-generation blades so you can operate anywhere, rapidly scale technology at the pace of evolving edge applications, and reduce your total cost of ownership.

Maximize Investment with Inherent Interoperability

A part of Mercury’s flagship RES HD blade server platform, our 3U 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.

Cost-Effective and Scalable

Our capability-dense "plug-and-pull" blades can be combined, configured and repurposed in multiple chassis to deliver cost savings, keep pace with growing edge workloads and drastically reduce your overall server footprint.
