Further to this question about Blade vs Rack servers I wanted to check some stories I have heard.
Are Blade servers much noisier than regular rack servers? (or was that just when they first came out?)
also, how much more cooling equipment do they need?
NB: I'm probably talking about 1 chassis with 7 or 8 blades in it, compared to 7 or 8 normal rack servers. Not huge numbers of servers.
