Appliance vendors claim that reduce maintenance workload is a big benefit, but how can they say that when the IT group is saddled with maintaining an increasing number of boxes by going the appliance route. Blades are a different animal altogether.”

Basically, there are three ways to deliver software: packaged software, as an appliance or as a service. Of late, the appliance route is getting quite some traction.
