I am thinking about buying a HP Blade server.  I work in for a small company and the servers are in my office.  I was wondering what is the noise level of a standard HP blade server?

    Accepted Solution

    Most "server" servers are designed for back room use.  The blade itself may be relatively quiet but the blade backplanes I've seen/heard are quite noisy.

    Plan on locating it behind closed doors or plan on getting something else.

    BTW, I think HP provides noise specs in their technical documents.
