Behind the Scenes at the InfoWorld Blade Shoot-Out
Each vendor would get a 2- or 3-day timeslot on-site in Hawaii for Paul to run the tests himself, plus play around with the system's management features. HP was scheduled for the first week of March.
"When the sun set over Waikiki, HP BladeSystem stood as the victor of InfoWorld 2010 Hawaii Blade Shoot-Out. Editor Paul Venezia blogged about HP's gear sliding off a truck, but other behind-the-scenes pitfalls meant the world's #1 blade architecture nearly missed the Shoot-Out entirely." Blade vendors were given a challenge: Bring a config geared toward virtualization readiness that included at least 4 blades and either fibre or iSCSI shared storage.
