There's an interesting little piece over at SearchWinComputing regarding blade servers and some of the things you need to look at when deciding whether a blade server implementation is the best way to go for a given hardware configuration.

"Blade servers are a force to be reckoned with in the hardware sector right now because of their potential benefits, such as convenience and reduced IT expenses. As more and more companies begin to jump on the virtualization bandwagon, they have to decide whether blades are a good choice for hosting these applications.

In some cases, blades are top notch, but in other cases, the hype is greater than the actual benefits that these servers deliver. This article examines each of blades' reputed benefits: reduced physical space requirements, lower cabling requirements and total cost of operation."

In short, as with any other technology-based solution to a given problem, you need to evaluate the tool carefully to determine if it will effectively do the job you need.
