Hey guys, 2006 year is on us and I have a decision to make. My DC is a mixture of around 250 dell servers, and 120 IBM xSeries servers. IBM came and did a free server consolidation study and has come back with the conclusion that with a mixture of IBM Blades, and Virtualized IBM x460 servers we can consolidate at a ratio of 6:1 in space and size. They have a very comprehensive proposal. Since Dell is our other provider we got a quote from them. Dell is approx 10% cheaper, but I have been soured with their support and the way they have been bashing IBM to try to get the business. Does anyone have experience with Dell Blades? IBM Blades? IBM x460's? Thanks!
