We use the HP 'P' Class Blades here and have done for some time,
The P Class are sort of 'Mid Range' now that the New 'C' Class are
the best of the best (But that cost an arm, both legs and maybe an eye)
But I used 5 Blades @ one point for K12LTSP and it ran fine..
A HP 'P' Class Chassis with 1 or two blades here in the UK starts
@ around £5,000 - £6,000 from most of my contacts as a 'Starter Kit'
But the 'P' class are slowly being replaced by the Very New 'C' Class...

But it is worth looking into blades as you start to replace old
servers as and when they need to be replaced...
