Martin MacLeod is an IT consultant based in London with several years' experience deploying and supporting blade servers in volume. He also blogs at bladewatch.com, where he tracks news on blade servers, grids and virtualization. Listen to the rest of Martin's answers on blade server virtualization by downloading our blade server virtualization podcast.

You could use the fibre connectivity cards, or the InfiniBand cards, or even the new network SAN storage solutions, which allow you to connect the SAN directly into the blade where the SAN offers additional storage for the virtual machines on that blade.
