A blade server is a self-sufficient and petite server that has innumerable processors and is stationed with other blade servers in an enclosure known as blade enclosure. The blade enclosure provides benefits such as reduced energy costs, less utilization of space and cabling inconvenience. Moreover, it also assists in file sharing, hosting of the virtual server platform, SSL encryption, hosting of application and database. Blade servers help in improving server execution by enhancing the capacity of storage and cutting down administration costs. Increased spending on IT investments, automation and virtualization are driving the growth of blade server in EMEA region. Geographically, the demand for blade server is increasing in Europe due to the expansion of data centers in the region and need for density optimization. However, high investments incurred during the adoption of blade servers can strain the market growth. Factors such as the requirement of racks or other equipment to be installed as a part of network infrastructure increase the costs of adoption for the servers which can act as an impediment to the growth.
