    Dear All,

    I'm running web hosting business and planning to buy an IBM Blade to host 2 or 3 blade servers at this moment.
    http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/express/campaigns/bladecenter/bladecenter_s_print_2008.html

    This Blade will max run 6 blade servers, regarding to the stability, Blade servers are better than IBM 2U Quad-Core servers?

    I'm just deciding what to buy but I'm a little bit confusing on the decision.

    Currently I've 4 dedicate server customers, do you think I better buy 4 x IBM 2U Quad-Core servers or one Blade with 4 blade servers, of course buying a Blade I will pay a lot more but is Blade really better than separate servers even if I'm running 4 blades for different customers?

    How about redundancy setup, is easy for me to setup 2 Blade servers as redundant for the shared users?


    Thanks in advance,

    Nuno
