I should find out tomorrow if we were approved for purchasing a Blade Server. I'll try to post the specs and our experiences if we get approved. One additional hurdle in moving from the S/390 platform to the Intel platform on Windows is that Microsoft wants there money too. Meaning we'll have to order an OS for the server and everyone hitting it will be required to have a Windows Client Access License (CAL). As the Department looks to move forward for the State E-mail Consolidation Plan of utilizing Exchange Server 2003, our Tech Ops area is already in the process of purchasing these. Yeah! That is ~$4,000 I don't have to worry about having to get approval to purchase for our Notes users.
