A Blade Thanksgiving


 Thursday is the Thanksgiving holiday in the US, a time when families often get together to give thanks for the things they most appreciate.  

  I snapped this pic inside one of the server development labs at HP; it looks like even the 'extended family' of blade servers decided to get together this year.

  Clockwise from the upper left, there's a Dell PowerEdge M1000e, two HP BladeSystem c7000's, a Fujitsu PRIMERGY BX900, an IBM BladeCenter-H, and a Cisco UCS 5100.   

  I'm not sure what these guys are most thankful for; maybe it's their tender admin who cares enough to give them redundant power drops.

8 Cool Projects found inside HP Labs

ComputerWorld took a tour recently of HP Labs to check out some of the things we're working on from the desktop to the datacenter.  We are really fortunate that we have these folks behind us.  What's even more fortunate for our customers is that these innovations find their way into real world products today.

Much of the Thermal Logic power and cooling technology in the BladeSystem and now Integrity and ProLiant servers is based on the ground breaking work of folks like Chandrakant Patel
