Re: what is the relevance of 'C-Class'

C-class is a encloser for blade servers =>

Hi Sooraj,

Thanks for your reply.
However, I am unable to access the links.

Also, can u please point me to the documentation which talks about the expansion/ classification of 'C' in C- Class blades.

Thanks a lot

Re: what is the relevance of 'C-Class'

I am sure with the below information you should be able to guess the naming convention:

Re: what is the relevance of 'C-Class'

First there was e-class, then p-class, then c-class.

Its just a naming/identification method for a group of compatible products.

So p-class blades are not phyisically compatible with c-class parts.

I know the DL in DL servers stands for Density Line, so as mentioned above I think -c-Class stands for Compact-Class.
