Sun's X4500: Cheapest data server for Oracle RAC?

Well this is much in line with the SAN vs SATA battle that we once spoke about and also built a server.

Sure Sun went ahead and delivered it to you on a silver platter! Really cool product! I'm beginning to feel that Sun's back! Good going, Jonathan!

Or the stuff recommended by Sun :

Designed For You

* HPC/Grid
* Business Intelligence/Data Analytics
* Digital Media Streaming
* Digital Video Surveillance
* Nearline Storage

That sure is a purty little thang!

This is an amazing way for SMB market and I am thinking of Universities and
Schools across Africa, India, Argentina, Brazil to name a few. I already know what I'm gonna be proposing to the Uganda team coming this September.

Imagine this 64bit AMD dual core server, 16G RAM and the whole stack from db, web apps, ldap,crm/erp, mail etc built on the virtualization layer like VI3 OR free VMware Servers! w00t :-)
