HDslim Portable Rugged Blade Chassis

Operate Anywhere and Store in Airline Overhead Bins

Our compact HDslim chassis can be carried aboard commercial airliners, aircrafts, and vehicles with ease and is small enough to fit in an airline overhead bin, allowing you to operate anywhere and keep critical information within your line of sight. With four slots that fit multiple generations of server-class blades, you can 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.

For operations on the move, simply remove relevant blades and drives from any of our rackmount blade chassis, plug into the HDslim, and go.

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.
