Coyote Point Systems announces strategy to deliver blade server load balancing solutions.Coyote Point Systems, has announced its support for the exploding blade server A server architecture that houses multiple server modules ("blades") in a single chassis. It is widely used in datacenters to save space and improve system management. Either self-standing or rack mounted, the chassis provides the power supply, and each blade has its own CPU, memory and market by making its award-winning Equalizer(TM) technology available for license to blade server vendors. Coyote Point's Equalizer technology supports the needs of IT departments for near 100 percent uptime, optimal server performance and simplified management, regardless of whether companies deploy traditional server technology or emerging blade solutions.
More and more enterprises are turning to the blade server option as a means to consolidate resources, maximize available real estate in data centers, and simplify overall management of the network. Just as with traditional servers, blade servers can be clustered to deliver fault tolerant The ability to continue non-stop when a hardware failure occurs. A fault-tolerant system is designed from the ground up for reliability by building multiples of all critical components, such as CPUs, memories, disks and power supplies into the same computer. redundancy, superior performance and stronger security. By making the award-winning Equalizer technology available to blade server OEMs, Coyote Point will ensure that enterprises have the option of implementing blade servers or traditional servers in their back-end infrastructure.
"Coyote Point's mission is to make intelligent load balancing The fine tuning of a computer system, network or disk subsystem in order to more evenly distribute the data and/or processing across available resources. For example, in clustering, load balancing might distribute the incoming transactions evenly to all servers, or it might redirect them as easy to use as possible for organizations of any size, whether a Fortune 500 company running dozens of applications over hundreds of servers, or the smallest local ISP (1) See in-system programmable.
(2) (Internet Service Provider) An organization that provides access to the Internet. Connection to the user is provided via dial-up, ISDN, cable, DSL and T1/T3 lines. that wants to deliver the best possible uptime and performance for customers," said William Kish, founder and CTO (Chief Technical Officer) The executive responsible for the technical direction of an organization.

"Equalizer technology is ideal for optimizing blade server environments because Equalizer quickly and efficiently routes traffic to the servers with the most available capacity, ensuring the system runs at peak performance levels. Blade server vendors now have the option of adding greater value to their solutions by making intelligent load balancing an out-of-the-box option for customers."
A blade server can be thought of as a server on a card. These ultra-dense, servers-on-a-card each contain a CPU CPU

Every transfer is an output from one device and an input to another. See PC input/output.

In turn, groups of these chassis can then be housed in a traditional server rack. IDC, a market research firm based in Framingham, Mass., expects the blade server market to grow from less than $1 billion in sales in 2003 to $6 billion by 2007, comprising about 27 percent of the server market by that time.
