"PowerEdge M-series stress power efficiency, good performance
for virtualization and a low total cost of ownership. While HP has
been taking what might be termed a "blade everything" approach,
Dell's strategy is to release blades when and where it thinks it
makes most business sense. This seems to be paying off, at least in

"Probably the most significant blade development was the
introduction of the PowerEdge M805 and M905 full-height blade
servers. The company characterizes this model as the industry's
most powerful and energy-efficient virtualization server blade.
Designed from the ground up for virtualization, the M905 is also
well-suited for memory- and performance-intensive applications and
for applications that need highly available fully redundant
connectivity. The M905 placed the number on the VMmark benchmark
for 16-core blades."
