I am about to buy a HS12 to replace a PE6950. Is this possible or comparable? It will be used for email service, visio, and MS Project. Currently it uses a lot of bandwidth and it's slow. Which HS12 do you think is sufficient?

I also wanted to buy another HS12 for Sharepoint and applications for designing IC as well as backups.

Is it possible? Sure. Can they be compared? Sure. Which bladecenter is sufficient really depends on your load. What is "a lot" of bandwidth, and what is "slow"? The second sentence isn't actually a question. – mattdm Dec 1 '10 at 3:34
