Still a bit shakey as I caused an accident on the highway this morning. Car
crashed, ego crashed but body ok. Nobody injured.
The funny thing was I was just on my way to the customer to see what they
were and how they were doing with the new setup,

Q1) I will get you the precise spec, but the Vendor is SUN. Not sure if they
decided on Redhat or solaris x86. I hope Redhat.

Q3) They were using IAS, so they could just move to the new platform by
reinstalling the application server.
     Moving from Sparc/Solaris to Intel/Redhat requires a change to the
code (recompile/relink) however with java you could be safe.

Q4) I will follow up with you.

Anjo, List

Qs 1 If you could share some more *config info* on the 30K $ Box please? *
O.S., Vendor etc  *
Qs 2 Did the O.S. continue to be Solaris OR did it change to something?
Sun does offer Boxes with with Opteron CPUs:-

Qs 3 Will moving to Opteron CPUs require RE-Compilation & porting of
existing Application Code?

NOTE - Our Banking Products are Coded is in Pro C, .Net, Java currently
Runs on Solaris, Windows , HP-UX (on Itanium Chips), AIX (P5 Servers) with
Oracle / SQL*Server Databases

Am looking to check the possibility of our Banking Product's possible port
to AMD Opteron & possibly build a case for management.
Qs 4 Any Site, Links, Presentations which can be used suitably, Other than
the following?,,30_118_8796_14287,00.html

 Thanks indeed.

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 :-)
