We recently learned that Aaron Delp closed down his BladeVault blog and is focusing on creating more useful infomation to share with the greater community by contributing to Scott Lowe's blog. For those of you that don't know Aaron, he's a senior engineer who is literally on the front lines of the blade and virtualization revolution. No, he doesn't work for HP or IBM. But he does know just about everything there is to know about us both. The good, the bad and the ugly.
We not only like Aaron because he's a smart guy who shoots it straight, but also because he likes to share what he knows with the community. Like I said, he knows a lot.
Well, here's what he's up to now. In a series titled "Blades and Virtualization Aren't Mutually Exclusive", Aaron is sharing a ton of personal research and experience with blades. In his first two articles in the series, he takes an insider look at the power advantages of blade versus rack servers - looking at both HP and IBM. I know we told you blades use a lot less power before, but you still think we're full of crap. Fine. Take it from Aaron.
In his next article, Aaron promised to focus on the expansion abilities of both the IBM and HP blade servers. We'll be reading and linking his thoughts here.
