BladeRunner - Enclosures for Uptime Industries Compute Blade

The BladeRunner Enclosures were developed to fit as many Uptime Industries Compute Blades as possible into the available space by offering efficient and ideal cooling.

They are optimized for heat distribution and airflow, utilizing the least possible space to scale the Compute Blade cluster. The BladeRunner enclosures are engineered to scale and offer you the greatest flexibility without the need to spend any thought on complex cooling or powering.

Two different versions are available in our shop, including a 19'' rack mount compatible version. Additionally, a 2-Node version exists, but only as open-source 3D print file.

Key Features 

  • Integrates within Compute Blade
  • Integrates within Fan Unit
  • Optimal Cooling 
  • Scalable design
  • fits 1U-rack space (19'' version)

A Compute Blade System is compatible with these enclosures, and is sold separately. The compute blade, compute modules and other accessories shown in the images are shown for illustration purposes.



Compute Blade RC2, V1.0

Fan Units


480 mm x 44,5 mm x 372.8mm (19'')

92,15 mm x 46,5 mm x 298 mm (4-node)

48,15 mm x 46,5 mm x 298 mm (2-node)


The BladeRunner enclosures are engineered to scale and offer you the greatest flexibility for your project without the need to spend any thought on complex cooling or powering. Thanks to the airflow-optimized design, each BladeRunner meets enterprise-grade cooling requirements.


19-inch 1U Rack

If you want to scale your cluster or if you have rack space available, Uptime Industries offers a 1U 19-inch metal enclosure.

Tested and developed for enterprise-grade usage and rack mounting. The 19-inch version can accommodate up to 20 Compute Blades and 10 Fan Units.


This enclosure fits 4 Compute Blades 
 and 2 Fan Units (STM or Smart).

This is akin to 2x the 2-node 3D print version but is injection molded. 


This enclosure fits 2 Compute Blades and 1 Fan Unit (STM or Smart).

The smallest version is a 2-node enclosure that can be stacked and scaled to the size your cluster requires.

Available only as an open-source 3D print file, allowing you to print one case for 
 2 Compute Blades and one Fan Unit (STM 
 or Smart, both are supported). 

Multiple 2-node and 4-node BladeRunners can be side-mounted together.




Accessories for the Compute Blade platform

The Compute Blade platform is a product family, consisting of products optimized to work with each other:

  • Compute Blade , compatible with Raspberry Pi Compute Module CM4
  • Compute Blade Fan Unit (Basic Fan Unit & Smart Fan Unit versions) - one fan unit cools two compute blades.
  • Compute Blade Heatsink - available in black, red, blue
  • BladeRunner Compute Blade Enclosures (this product page) - available in a 19''-rack mountable version, and a 4-unit housing version
  • (coming soon): AI accelerator module, adds two Coral TPUs to the compute blade
  • (coming soon): BladeCluster Pro and BladeCluster ProSW - fully assembled 19'' 1U metal racks, including compute modules and software (ProSW only)





What is a Compute Blade? 

The Compute Blade, is a enterprise grade rack-mountable, PoE-powered carrier board for Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4, allowing you to create a blade server.

What is a blade server?

A blade server is a compact, self-contained computer server, specifically designed to minimize the use of physical space and energy. Unlike traditional rack-mount servers, which are standalone servers that require individual components such as network and storage interfaces, blade servers are housed in a chassis that provides these resources collectively. This setup allows for a high density of servers, which can share power, cooling, networking, and storage facilities provided by the chassis.

Blade servers are particularly suitable for environments requiring high compute density without the need for a lot of individual storage, like web hosting, virtualization, and cloud computing services.

Where can I find out more about Uptime Industries, what is their story? 

Uptime Industries was founded in April 2023 by Ivan Kuleshov and Sascha Bührle following a successful Kickstarter campaign “Compute Blade: Your Rack-Mountable ARM Cluster,” where the first 12,000 blades were sold and the community expanded.

Based on community requests, Uptime Industries decided in early 2024 to extend the Compute Blade platform with multiple modules and accessories, besides working on its own software products for a holistic Compute Blade experience, innovating in the cluster computing space.

During the same time, a well-recognized VC, TrueVentures, joined forces to expand and scale the Compute Blade platform rapidly besides developing an upcoming edgeAI focused product line.
