I would also say that blade servers most of the time, up front cost more >than single server solutions.

With HP you can chose to have fibre in it or not, obviously cheaper without. You don't really need Altiris to take snapshots, just use VMWare and Vmotion.
Experts Exchange is like having an extremely knowledgeable team sitting and waiting for your call. Couldn't do my job half as well as I do without it!

All blades have the option to not have the fibre connections and Alteris make a suite for the Dell servers, and if its based on price then HP wouldnt get a look in
