Design just like you would design normal rackmount servers, networking and storage and then ask a reseller to convert it to a blade solution. There's really no logical difference between ordinary servers and blade servers except someone's hammered them into a different shape.

Same questions you would ask if it was a rack full of servers, how many apps, what networking do they need, how much disk space and how many IOPS. Preparing the BOM is diffreent of course, but if you look at www.hp.com/go/blades for example you see there is the normal networking kit from Cisco, HP Procurve etc, fibre channel switches from Brocade and Cisco, Intel and AMD based servers. What vendor are you a reseller for?
