Just stumbled upon this offer directly from IBM. There is also another offer for free memory with System-X.

Buy a BladeCenter E or a BladeCenter H and a Minimum of 4 Blades or a BladeCenter S with a minimum of 3 blades (minimum configuration applies) before June 30th 2009 and IBM will provide the chassis for £1. Not only that, but opt for a redundant pair of Bladecenter S's unique shared storage controllers, or two Nortel switches, and get one free of charge!

This is not a consumer product! These blades for for business running big IT data centres.

I think the price is probably a bit out too. Last time I priced IBM Blades they were about £1800-£2000 each and you need to buy 3 or 4 of those to get the chassis for free here

Well perhaps not necessarily big IT datacentres, but these would normally be expected to be purchased commercially. However, I do know hobbyists that run stuff like this, and people who run them for self training purposes (but usually used and surplus ones).

At that price I would buy it and run VMware ESX

It’s isn’t two blades for the price of one but two switches or SAS controllers for the price of one. Misleading title. :thinking:

“2 for price of 1 (Terms and conditions apply) on either the Nortel switch (32R1860) , or the new SAS RAID controller (43W3584)”

ESX is fine, but expensive! I would opt for XenServer, it does much of what ESX does out of the box and is completely free.
