Add to compare
The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product family:
The product family is a generic trademark of a brand to indicate a very wide range of products, that can encompass multiple categories. We include product family in the Icecat product title.
eServer BladeCenter
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
BladeCenter HS21 XM
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
Category :
Extra powerful, extra reliable computers that have been specially designed for server applications. For example serving a website, a large database or shared storage space to a lot of users. Servers are often not very quiet and deliver hardly any graphical performance, which makes them not suitable for use as personal computer. If you need a lot of servers, choose a rack mountable model. Those models need less space and your server room will remain tidy.
Data-sheet quality: created/standardized by Icecat
The quality of the product data-sheet can be on several levels:
only logistic data imported: we have only basic data imported from a supplier, a data-sheet is not yet created by an editor.
created by IBM: a data-sheet is imported from an official source from a manufacturer. But the data-sheet is not yet standardized by an Icecat editor.
created/standardized by Icecat: the data-sheet is created or standardized by an Icecat editor.

Processor frequency*
The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.
2 GHz
Processor family*
A family of processors is a group of processors produced by one company over a short period of time e.g. Intel Pentium processors.
Intel® Xeon®
Processor model*
The model number for the processor in a computer.
Number of processors installed*
Number of processors in the product.
Processor cache type
Processor cache
4 MB
Processor socket
Mechanical component(s) that provides mechanical and electrical connections between a microprocessor and a printed circuit board (PCB). This allows the processor to be replaced without soldering.
Socket J (LGA 771)
Thermal Design Power (TDP)
65 W
Processor lithography
The process which is performed by the processor e.g. CPU (Central Processing Unit).
65 nm
Maximum number of SMP processors
Processor front side bus
A computer communications interface used to connect the processor to the rest of the computer, except the cache (and possibly other processors).
1333 MHz
Total storage capacity*
The total amount of data that can be stored on the device.
146 GB
Hard drive interface*
The way that a hard disk drive (HDD) is connected to the rest of the computer through a 'bus' such as ATA or SCSI.
Serial Attached SCSI (SAS)
RAID levels
RAID is a storage technology that combines multiple disk drive components into a logical unit for the purposes of data redundancy and performance improvement. Data is distributed across the drives in one of several ways, referred to as RAID levels, depending on the specific level of redundancy and performance required.
Internal memory*
A computer's memory which is directly accessible to the CPU.
1 GB
Maximum internal memory *
The maximum internal memory which is available in the product.

Memory slots *
Number and type of memory expansion slots, including connector and memory module descriptions.
ECC means Error Correction Code, and it is memory that is able to detect and correct some memory errors without user intervention.
Maximum graphics adapter memory
Graphics memory is determined by the (graphic) processor. Graphics memory is often shared with system memory so that it varies depending on the amount of system memory installed and system load.
16 MB
Graphics adapter
