Intel SSD 910 Series 800GB SSDPEDPX800G301 -> $4,000
Hmm... we need this device for 3 for 2TB, then $12,000.
Does it make sense that separate it to some hosts?
e.g. one is amd64, i386, kfreebsd-*, another is the rest.
Since most users' needs is limited to those x86, I guess. If we'd use
new device to create x86 images at least, it's better than now.
(probably we can create *hourly* CD/DVD images)
It's not perfect choice (of course) but better cost performance for
investment for new equipment, IMO.
Or do we have any restrictions to put all into one server?
