More server power, less space
The Katana Blade Server ensures an efficient operation thanks to its high server density and commonly used components as power supply, network connections and memory. Plus: it combines the power of several servers. This saves you space, acquisition and operation costs.

When developing our systems, we attach particular importance to a smooth-running operation. This is the reason why the Katana offers a failsafe performance due to its redundant system components. Another advantage is the easy operation: it offers a simple implementation and adjustment as well as an easy and consistent administration. Extensions can be carried out fast and easyly, even during server operation. This simplicity is also made visible by the lack of complex wiring.
