I don't particularly care about all the technical specs of the boxes -- I
just need to know what we need in general, what we plan to use it for, and
how much it's going to cost.
There shouldn't be any budget issues for a couple of thousand dollars
worth of boxes, but that's only if I can give a useful accounting of what
the money is buying us.
As far as generals any sort of remote management would be fine by me,
serial bios support, DRAC, or IP based KVM would be fine. One thing
I'm not sure on, and Stace would know more, is how much space is left
on our PDU's. Though in the near future we could really use a Xen
box. Which, in general needs drive space and plenty of RAM.
