Today is a great day.
I can finally announce the death of my personal enemy - no, not the one everybody's talking about today - I'm talking about the HP Blade C7000 Enclosure/Chassis and therefore all HP Blade Servers.
It is now officially decommissionned, taken out of production, down. Finally a big relief for me! No more this doubtful question "May I reboot the server? Will it come back online again?" or frequent motherboard crashes. No more "BIOS upgrades which then result in DIMM errors and server death". No more backpain! :-))
Over several years I've tried to documentate my pain this terrorist has caused me:
November 30th, 2008: Why I hate Blade Servers
March 3rd, 2010: The HP Blade Nightmare continues
May 5th, 2010: What might be the best Blade System?
October 25th, 2010: And I still hate Blade Servers
And here are the last pictures of the wanted dead:
