We have customers infrastructure hosted on physical HP boxes across several racks and finally we are planning to migrate them to Vsphere.Data is stored on NFS SAN.It was suggested to use c-Series Dell servers for hypervisors. In the past I have been involved in projects that used blades for virtualization and using c-Series feels like a unusual choice for me. I am trying to figure out what are the pros and cons of using blades or c-Series in our scenario.Does anyone has experience with c-Series and Vsphere deployments?

Well its probably fair to say that the C-series allows higher concentration of hosts in a rack, but perhaps less resources per host, in particular, network connections might be limited compared to those possible on a blade like the m610, for example.
That might or might not be an issue for you, only you know the exact details of your requirements.
