Pi day and the Pi blade server

It looks today is Pi day, it also looks like nowadays everyday is day of something...

In any case will share here my Pi in blade server version....

The Pi was supposed to be inside another box to be used as an SDR receiver but didn't liked the DVB card quality (RF wise) and now was converted to a NAS...

Keep in mind this is the Raspberry and not the Pi constant with approx value of:  3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105
(give it or take)

On to the most interesting photos:

The full enclosure:

 Power supply:
The disk array (external storage):
Chassis interconnect:
Power line and boot device slot:
Easy access for maintenance:
The CPU blade:

.... so now you know how to get your blade chassis... in the nearest poundo shop for arround 1.5 Eur...

Have a nice week!
