The SIGMABLADE solves cabling headache by supporting a variety of FC/LAN pass-through and
switch module options. These modules are designed to link the server blades to user ports
without cables for better configuration connectivity. Unlike conventional rack-mount servers,
the SIGMABLADE requires much fewer LAN and FC cables and frees administrators from cabling hassles.

Server Management
Blade Enclosure Management Utility
The EM card allows users to monitor the status and change settings of the blade enclosure unit. By simple remote settings
Hardware and software utilities for
efficient management
from a web console, administrators can control power allocation and reduce management costs. By limiting the amount
of power that can be used by a blade enclosure unit and the entire cabinet (setting a maximum power value) and controlling
the fan rotation speed to match the operating status of each CPU blade, unnecessary power consumption is reduced.
NEC Express5800/SIGMABLADE series include Enclosure Management (EM) Cards in the
blade enclosure and an EXPRESSSCOPE Engine on CPU blades. Utilization of NEC
Power allocation between CPU Blades in an enclosure
SigmaSystemCenter (SSC) platform management software delivers centralized administration,
In case the maximum power limit for the enclosure is set to 2,000 watts: policy-based autonomy, and reduced total operating costs and system administrator workload.
Low priority blades are automatically switched
to power-saving mode.
Total power use after adding a server:
2,200 watts (200 watts over)

CPU Blade Management Utility
The NEC EXPRESSSCOPE Engine, a chipset on the CPU blade integrating a Baseboard Management Controller, and
DianaScope remote management utility allow remote control and monitoring of a managed server even when its OS is
not functioning (when the power is off, during BIOS startup, or if the OS stalls). They also enable proactive alerting, automatic
operation of the managed server, and error logging and viewing of server settings from a remote web browser, thus creating
a highly reliable operating environment. The NEC EXPRESSSCOPE Engine’s function untangles the complexity of your
remote server management.
Platform Management Software
The EM Cards interact with each other across the enclosures for optimal
power allocation and keep overall power consumption below the maximum.
<Example>
Power limit setting for
the entire rack: 9.0kW
Power allocated to Unit 1 : 1.5kW
Actual power : 1.5kW
Powering on will exceed maximum.
Additionally required: 0.5kW
Power allocated to Unit 2 : 1.5kW
Actual power : 1.5kW
Power allocated to Unit 3 : 3.0kW
Actual power : 2.5kW
Surplus of power allocated to
Unit 3 supplements Unit 2.

The SSC is an all-in-one platform management solution designed for centralized management and policy-based
autonomy. It monitors CPU usage rates and dynamically allocates server resources based on changing operational
loads.This single tool offers all of the functionality necessary for platform management without the need to

perform everyday operations such as patch distribution, autonomous failure recovery, and expansion or
reorganization of servers based on workloads.
