IBM is preparing to offer its BladeCenter blade system as part of Rackable's ICE Cube modular data center, which some believe has the potential to be part of an IT infrastructure for high-performance computing and Web 2.0.

IBM and Rackable Systems have inked a new agreement that will allow Rackable to pack IBM's BladeCenter systems in its modular data center for the first time.

The agreement, which the two companies are expected to announce July 28, will allow Rackable to offer IBM's BladeCenter T and HT blade chassis within its own ICE (Integrated Concentro Environment) Cube modular data center, which had previously used only Rackable's specially designed rack-mount servers.
