+1 for HP x86 blades and RHEL5.  No issues.  I like the BL460 Intel
blades better than the BL685 AMD blades, but do some benchmarking to
see which product works best for you.  Lots of choices now from all
the vendors.

They're new, but I really like Cisco's UCS blade architecture.  Maybe
not as important to have all those features for Oracle but sure looks
nice if you're managing a data center with a bunch of app servers.
