A very nice review today of our M Series Blade Server by Brian Chee at InfoWorld's test lab.
Here's a couple quotes:
We also didn’t expect it to be as quiet as it was, but what we did expect
were some hellaciously fast blades -- and that’s what we got.
Dell has crammed in an IP KVM (optional), CMC
(which can also have a redundant unit), a serial term server, and a
couple of switches (various configurations in the options list) into
the chassis, saving you at least 3RUs of gear
Check in with us tomorrow for our TechCenter chat discussing management of the M Series blades.
I've spoken to the blade engineering team and they have been creating some very powerful, new management capabilities that will continue to simplify the day to day work of managing M Series blades. You are going to like it.
