[THIN] Re: HP Blades vs HP 360 G4's

We run several Citrix farms on blades. and Also on DL 360's
The Blades seem to fail slightly more then the dl 360's but then
agaian the cost makes us able to have blades down and still save money
compared to the dl360's

We run environments of 400 Citrix blades and approx 120 DL 360's
and in my opinion they perform similarly (except for some blades being
down, but then again the solution is scaled for that)

The blades definitly gives a space/price advantage though. Our 400
blades run on 60u or so as far as i remember... The similar amount of
dl360's would be 400 u ...
