German term or phrase: Server-Blechen
Hi folks.
First time I have hit this term. Not much context, but here is what I have:

XXX für insgesamt 175 Clients, davon 110 virtuell, 30 virtuelle Server auf 6 realen Server-Blechen, 3 davon für die VMware View – Umgebung

XXX stands for a cybersecurity product.
I assume it means that the servers are real hardware but I am guessing. The term does not appear elsewhere in the job. The text is basically technical advertising for the XXX product.

So, I am at a loss and am grateful for any pointers.

Thanks.

Explanation:
see e.g. https://www.computerbase.de/forum/showthread.php?t=1587119 "Bei uns im Unternehmen heißen die entweder "Blech" oder "physische Server"."

or http://www.inside-it.ch/articles/17299 "Neben dem "Blech", wie man in der Branche Hardware auch gerne bezeichnet, "...

So 30 virtual servers running on 6 physical servers (or hosts) -- real is slightly redundant here, I think

Thanks to everybody. I had a feeling that was what was meant, but confirmation of it is much better. I guess my engineering 'Umgangssprache' needs a bit of work.
