what is a half or full blade ? Is BL870C a full or half blade

Hi,
I am new to integrity/blade. Just want to know what is a half blade and full blade ? Planning to purchase BL870C and want to know if this is a full blade or half? Do the blade hardware model comes in half or full choices ?

Size matters!

You can install 16 half heigh blades (proliant only) in a C7000 chassis or 8 full heigh blades (e.g. BL860c), but only 4 BL870c blades, because it is full heigh and double width.

This is a monster!

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
