Can anybody comment on when blades are going to come much closer
(relatively, of course) to converging with commodity boxes or atleast
competitive with rackmount systems? From what I have seen, albeit my
info is a bit out of date, blade servers are often well off the bleeding
edge for performance and well beyond the front edge of pricing.
