I'd like to purchase a blade enclosure with SAN
storage.  What systems like these are recommended with

Please comment on:
HP c-class enclosure -- will some/all of the
management features work?  if I use hp tools (requires
compat5) and linux compat, would I get all/most

Is p-class better if all the "bells and whistles" of
the c-class are not available?

What about Dell?  Not as robust but cheaper?  Does
Dell blade system (PE1955) with CX300 work well?  If
hp c-class doesn't make sense because functionality
(like manageability features) are not available, then
would Dell's offering be a better choice over the hp

Please feel free to recommend other blade-SAN
configurations that work well under FreeBSD.
