IBM is attemping to revolution servers with their new blade servers and chassis that allow the servers to share resource.

CNET says, "Blades are thin servers that plug side-by-side into a chassis. The chassis supplies shared resources such as electrical power and networking switches. The approach is designed to be more flexible than conventional stand-alone rack-mounted servers."

These thin servers can save space in data centers. Maybe they will eventually target home users as well. A chassis full of blade servers to run your wired home.
