Installing HP blades into a 3rd party rack

Hi there --

Is it possible to install HP blades into a 3rd party, Angstrom Microsystems, rack?

If it fulfills the requirements, I cannot see why not.

See the BladeSystem Site Planning Guide:
http://bizsupport.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01038153/c01038153.pdf

The requirements for rack are listed on page 48.

Pay particular attention to the depth of the rack: the c7000 enclosure has a depth of 32 inches. You'll want to have a bit of extra depth at the back of the rack, so the cable connections will be protected and you'll have some space for e.g. cable organizers.
