Blade server rack from behind
For Dell, the devil is in the details. Here, for example, is the back of a blade server rack. Instead of just creating holes for fan units to push air out of the back, Dell's designers decided to design the fan unit itself, just like a separate product. The fan units, of which there are three rows of three, were modeled after an F-18 jet's air intake. Dell hopes design decisions like that, when taken as a whole, will inspire customers to trust the machine, and the brand as a whole, more.
