BTW: I was recently impressed by our sales rep. I wanted two servers as
replacements for our really old firewalls. I required hardware
redundancy (hotswap drives and power supplies), but they actually
need barely any processing power nor memory (one of the old machines was
a Pentium III 800 with 512 Megs or so, basically idle most of the time).
He managed to build us a system configuration based on the R300 with
el-cheapo Celerons and small disks in them for less than 1.000 Euros per
system (including advanced support).
Always talk to your sales rep before ordering - there's a lot more than
you can see on the web site and in the online shop! And it's cheaper
that way, too.
