Wel, it is trivial to get redundant PSUs, LOTS of ECC RAM and CPU power, and
two 10GBE interfaces in 1U rack space, if you go Intel.  Supermicro has them
cheap, Dell and IBM have them less cheap.

And it will run FreeBSD a lot easier than a Sun Fire, I think (but I never
tried to get FreeBSD running on Sun hardware).
