Backplane Board Server Accessories

Are you considering upgrading your server processors to enhance your data center's storage capacity and performance? Maybe you need to increase your server's power supplies to support additional devices? If this is your situation, you surely need a suitable backplane board for your data center.

A backplane board is simply a printed circuit board with special sockets or slots that allow for the connection of your server's backplane systems or devices. So, you will conveniently attach:

  • Hot-swappable Hard Drive
  • Disk controller
  • Multiple connectors
  • Memory cards
  • Processor Cards

What's more, with a backplane board, you can easily design your server or computer system! All you need is to connect it to either a plug-in Single-Board Computer (SBC) or a System Host Board (SHB), and you have a fully functional system!

Benefits of Backplane Boards

1. They Are Versatile

Backplane board allows you to connect other boards or daughterboards and hence, provide the flexibility that your data center may need. That is, you can interchange different cards based on your computing requirements.

To achieve this flexibility to the fullest, with desired stability, it's critical that you only go for a connector with superior signal integrity is critical.

2. Allows for Easy Scalability

You can easily design your customized server computer to fulfill your server's performance needs. Further, with a backplane board, expanding your server's storage capacity is much easier.

Which Backplane Board Should You Choose?

There are many two types of backplane boards that you can choose from:

1. Passive Backplanes

These come with limited circuitry, and hence, only come with electrical connectors for computer bus attachment. For this reason, to communicate with your backplane systems, suitable expansion cards or expansion boards have to be connected to them.

2. Active Backplanes

This type comes with slots that have the necessary circuits to control communication among slots. Therefore, all you need to do is directly attach your SAS or SATA Hard Drives to it, processor cards, memory cards, and other suitable connectors.

Since they are known to have zero failure risk, they are highly recommended for enterprise use.

3. ISA and PIC Backplane Board

Based on bus type technology, you can choose backplane boards with either ISA or PCI bus connection. ISA backplane boards offer up 16-bit data transfer, with its enhanced version of Extended ISA (EISA) having a capacity for 32-bit data transfer.

For superior performance, a high-speed backplane board with PCI bus connectivity is highly recommended. This is due to its high data transfer rates of between 32-64 bits and enhanced high clock speed of up to 33 MHz.

Backplane Board Accessories Worth Considering.

Based on your data center storage requirements, here is a list of some of the most highly reliable and affordable backplane boards to consider:
