Nice… But no integrated network in the server chassis? Come on…
Make it a 3U and put a Cisco 3750 inside and drop the external NIC ports.
We really don’t need more cables in our data centers.
The integrated network and san infrastructure that blade system usually come with is an important feature. The HP C7000 chassis is excellent and I’m sure Dell and IBM have equal products.
The power rating is simply amazing. Any one have any idea on its pricing?
Karl, the Dell M1000 chassis would be the closest comparison to the HP c7000 chassis. That chassis has the networking, etc. built in. This product is geared toward a totally different market.
Faisal, if you will contact me offline ( firstname.lastname@example.org) I can chat more with you about this.
