A Blade Server houses multiple server modules (blades) in a single chassis. Either self-standing or rack mounted, it is optimized to consume a minimal amount of power and use the available space in a data center as efficiently as possible.
The Blade Server comprises of the essential components only such as the CPU, RAM, network adapters and integrated I/O ports. The cooling equipment, storage and power converters are in the chassis. Less cabling is needed as opposed to several stand-alone servers that need to be connected to a network.
Blade servers make it possible to take-out and add-in server blades while the system is up and running. New processor, communications, storage and interconnect technology can be installed into existing blades with zero to minimal disturbance to the operations of the whole system.

Minimize Space and Energy Consumption
Ease of Consolidation
Only one blade server is needed to house multiple servers. Since these multiple servers are able to share components and power source, consolidation of other factors such as cabling, storage and maintenance is possible.
Since individual server blades are stripped to bare minimum, they do not have other features found in conventional servers such as keyboard, graphic cards and others. Thus less devices need to be powered, reducing overall power consumption.
Blade Servers are easy to maintain in terms of failover capabilities and load balancing. Since it has a slimmer infrastructure, work becomes easier and less complicated. Moreover, it is capable of self-diagnosis. Thus in case of hardware failure, it is easier to identify and quickly solve the problem.
