Blade servers and bl460 questions
Posted on 2008-10-04
Please clarify the purpose / use of a blade server in particular a bl460.
Can this bl460 be used for various things?
I thought bl460 was for virtualising windows servers and running them with ESX VMWARE software to manage them.
Can these such blades servers bl460s be used in other ways i.e. for virtulaised HPUX servers, virtualised Solaris servers?
Are bl460 blade servers simply hardware for virtualising servers regardless of whether it's windows, hpux and solaris??
How does ESX fit in - is this only for windows?
Is ESX only for Windows & Linux?
What would be used for HPUX virtualised servers?
What would be used for Solaris virtualised servers?
I am more confused than ever.
