Amateur to HP Blade Server need help.

I'm new to the HP proliant Blade Server, and I am about to order one for my small business, I really want this server, and I want to know what I should expect as the full package before I order, I don't have any infrasructure on groundn except for a very good internet connection and Server Operating System, apart from the Server board, and the rack, what else should I order, e.g Displa Unit, mouse, keyboard, HDD, please advise

A blade system requires you to put them in a special blade chassis, not a rack.  It is assumed you have lots of blade servers in them, not just one.

Eight steps to building a bladesystem:

In general, I would advise against going the blade way, unless you plan to deploy at least half of what a C3000 BladeSystem can hold (it holds 8 servers in total, so 4 servers at least).

Same goes for the C7000 enclosure (which holds 16 blades in total).

 

If you're in doubt, I recommend that you contact your local HP sales rep :)
