    HP Blade cabinet

    Can anyone recommend a 22u cabinet to accept a HP C3000 blade unit. Although I like the HP one, it's quite expensive. If anyone can convince me to purchase it, then I may do.

    Cheers

    Why 22u? Isn't that a bit of an odd size?

    I use 42u APC cabs and have been very impressed with their build quality for the price.

    We have 1 of these - Dell PowerEdge Rack 2410

    and 6 of these - Dell PowerEdge Rack 4210

    good bit of kit in my opinion. To be honest they are pretty much the same.

    They look good, how much are they roughly?

    I have a 28u with about 9u spare. But want another to accommodate my new blade, but could not envisage using all the extra u's


    Do you have any links to the APC'S, thanks

    APC kit can be found at APC - NetShelter SX Enclosures - Product Information - accessories are a click or two away.

    If my maths is correct, 28-9+22=41 so would it not be neater to get a single 48u which would allow you plenty of room to space out your kit whilst keeping the same footprint?

    I was just thinking the same thing, but I doubt my colleagues would be able to reach the top without a ladder

    Many thanks for the link!

    They do look good, not sure on the price. Does it matter how they look?
