If the words "enterprise-class" actually mean something more than "much larger markup than purchasing components" then go with something like http://www.marvell.com/company/news/pressDetail.do?releaseID=3576 For example, maybe the http://www.mitac.com/business/gfx_servers.html people have benchmarks representative of our DB/cache usage patterns. It's not like we have anything special (or x86-specific, Jasper!) other than very high bandwidth. At least put out an RFP, please. _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
