1. A switch board configured to couple to at least one first server blade and at least one second server blade in a blade server, wherein the switch board comprises:
a plurality of first ports, wherein the first ports are configured to couple the switch board to the first server blade;
a plurality of second ports, wherein the second ports are configured to couple the switch board to the second server blade; and
a processor coupled to the first ports and the second ports, wherein the processor is configured to:
divide the switch board into a first virtual sub-switch-board and a second virtual sub-switch-board;
allocate the first ports to the first virtual sub-switch-board, wherein the first ports have a first bandwidth equivalent to a bandwidth of the first server blade; and
allocate the second ports to the second virtual sub-switch-board, wherein the second ports have a second bandwidth equivalent to a bandwidth of the second server blade, and wherein the first bandwidth is different than the second bandwidth.
