Yes, this is helpful. So if I'd ask for, say, one HP DL580 (4-way Xeon) and
one DL585 (4-way Opteron) loaded with 16G RAM and four 146G disks each, we'd
be happy? Or do you mean two of both architectures? At least one of both
should be reasonably easy for them to provide I think.
They do of course have external enclosures for a larger number of disks too,
the main box takes only four.
