IBM to offer blades for small firms

Antony Savvas
IBM plans to make it cheaper and easier for small and medium-sized businesses to buy and set up a blade server system with its eServer Blade Centre Express line.

The company wants to dispel the notion that blade servers are only for large enterprises.

IBM has also produced a set of implementation tools, which it calls Business-in-a-Box, for open source and Microsoft systems.

Analyst firm IDC said blade server sales were growing at 60% a year and were expected to account for 25% of servers sold in 2004. IBM has the biggest share of the market with more than 40%.
