IBM Vs. HP Blade Server

By nilay.choksi ·
Dear all,

We would like to go for blade servers based on our requirements.

Request all of you to suggest the difference between IBM vs HP blade server.

At my end we are detailing it thoroughly, but since it would be a big investment for us, we also would like to check the nitty-gritty between both IBM & HP.

You can also forward the links for the same.

Thanks & Regards,

We use both here - both have never missed a beat!

Support is probably equal - the difference will be the deal you get at the time ie who can give you the best hardware you want for the lowest price!

Warranty/Maintenace/Service costs are the most important thing in the end when you compare the Main players ie IBM, HP, Sun, Dell etc etc

Although this seems to be an older post, but I believe people still hitting it often as I did when I first started looking for a comparison between IBM and HP blades. I have almost got tired of keyword searching on google IBM vs HP, HP vs IBM, Compare and so on till I have found out a neat not famous comparison site with a neat comparison of the two. I here post the link for people hitting this post and save them lot of time being hit by IBM and HP gang only advertising their box as this comparison seems to be quite fair.
