There exist

rack mounted ( DL320, DL 360 ...etc )
tower versions ( ML330, ML 350 ...etc)

but exist DL/ML 370 :) bot rack and tower

Blades are other option, you need enclosoures to run them ( either c3000 or c7000 ) but it depends all on your plans for deployment.

Question is very wide, so the best is

and prepare list of all options you want to use for your systems ( Platform, Operating system, number of hosts, newtork switches used ( procurve for example ) , etc, etc, )
