Blade as a Service (BaaS)

When you want to take advantage of a Cloud environment but have a heavy workload, or are running software such as Microsoft SQL or Citrix, which don’t always work well on virtualised platforms, Blue Chip have the answer.

With Blade as a Service (BaaS), a fixed monthly fee provides our customers access to a Blade Server, housed within one of our highly-resilient datacentres and offering your own dedicated resource needed for high-powered workloads that you would normally need a physical server for.

Utilising the same cutting-edge technology that supports our Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform, and with hardware management and ownership addressed by Blue Chip, you can have peace of mind that your workload is safe – all without costly overheads and maintenance.

Why Blade as a Service from Blue Chip?

  • Racks are located within Vodafone’s Tier 3, List X Datacentres, which provides maximum security and Infrastructure protection, with features including Fire suppression systems, CCTV and biometrics
  • Your own dedicated HP BL460 Gen9 blade server, housed in a C7000 blade chassis monitored 24/7, and capable of interfacing directly with customer-specific IaaS, Colocation, and network connectivity
  • Accommodate high-performance workloads without the costs associated with excessive virtual infrastructure
  • Build out a solution in tandem with our IaaS platform
  • Inclusive management and maintenance of “best-of-breed” hardware
  • Some software which cannot be run virtually for legal or economic reasons can be easily run on your Blade Server
