Can someone explain to me what a double density blade actually is in real world terms (not typical HP doc-speak) - ?
Is it a full height blade? Taking the bottom AND the top bays? or is it something else entirely - HP docs are clear as mud....

Thanks for the response - so it's not a server (blade in this case) "partitioned" out as two entirely different servers w/ separate resoures and OS's ?

Never seen such thing before, but according to the documentation there are 2 "small" independent servers in a half hight blade chassis.
Hope this helps!

These are effectively 2 independent servers in 1 half height blade case.
Some specs - per server (so 2 times all this in 1 half height case):
- up to 2 Xeon 55xx processors
- 6 DIMM sockets DDR3 so max 96GB
- 1 non hotplug SFF SATA or SSD drive
- 1 dual port NIC NC362i
- 1 I/O expansion mezzanine slot
Is indeed used in environments where alot of CPU's and memory is necessary... For instance HPC and Linux clusters...
If you send me a mail I can send some pictures from the inside and the front...
