Hello everyone,

My supervisor is looking into getting some hardware and I thought that I'd 
asked some experts so he doesn't cock up the specs!

Right we've got about $17,500 dollars to spend and we need to get some 
hardware to act as a webserver to process jobs and be used also as a 
repository for the database that is being accessed during processing. The 
database is going to be mirrored. At present the database is only 80 Gig 
however it is growing with the size of the PDB (exponentially). So really I'm 
asking for a well balanced stable system that has a good price to performance 

Right I'll stop there as I don't know what the hell I'm really talking about. 
Ohh one final concern is that we're in the UK so will there be a price 
difference in comparison to the US?

Anyway cheers for any suggestions and help.
