Why don’t you add SuperMicro blades to this comparison?
Thanks for the question. I don’t include SuperMicro in any of my blog posts since I created this site in 2009 because:
1) they have a very small market share
2) they are the farthest, lowest spot on Gartner’s latest Magic Quadrant
3) if I include SuperMicro then I’d have to include all of the other minor vendors
4) I have never seen information available in a single format like Lenovo’s Redbooks or HPs QuickSpecs that would assist me in putting details together
