Definition: Blade servers are self-contained computer servers, designed for high density.
Whereas a standard rack-mount server can exist with (at least) a power cord and network cable, blade servers have many components removed for space, power and other considerations while still having all the functional components to be considered a computer.
A blade enclosure, which can hold multiple blade servers, provides services such as power, cooling, networking, various interconnects and managementthough different blade providers have differing principles around what should and should not be included in the blade itself (and sometimes in the enclosure altogether). Together these form the blade system.
In a standard server-rack configuration, 1U (one rack unit, 19' wide and 1.75' tall) is the minimum possible size of any equipment.
The principal benefit of, and the reason behind the push towards, blade computing is that components are no longer restricted to these minimum size requirements.
The most common computer rack form-factor being 42U high, this limits the number of discrete computer devices directly mounted in a rack to 42 components.
Blades do not have this limitation; densities of up to 84 discrete servers per rack are achievable with the current generation of blade systems Source: Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blade_server)
