Dl 585 is the one to go for. Buy the fastest and most memory that you can
and you will be smiling the whole day. I just advised a customer to replace
their 16 cpu SUN sparc box with a 4 CPU dual core Opteron. The sun box was 1
million dollar, the opteron costed around 30K dollar. They went live over
the weekend and and they are very happy :-)

We will buy an new server.

SO will be RHEL 4 AS/ES


1)       HP 585 4x AMD Opteron

2)       HP 580 4x Xeon

Any reference, idea, experience about these 2 alternatives ???

What about SGA limit ?

I think I can make a huge SGA with AMD64 (no 3 GB limit),

Do I have this limit in Xeon 64 bit ?
