I have to purchase some servers and considering the IBM and HP server blades.
Any comments on these two server brands would be appreciated. The IBM model is the IBM ECentre with HS20 xeon EM64T blade processors and DS400 SAN compared to the HP BL20p.
I.m looking at issues such as reliability, redundancy or known bugs/problems associated with these units. Any advice for maximum (cost not an issue) redundancy would be appreciated eg duplex controllers on san with quad fibre connection, etc
