I think it is great that nowadays that effective HW exists. I tend to recommend x86 platform to my customers as well.
But I can't understood why customers still buying HW based on RISC CPU-s. There have to be something good about RISCs beside politics and good mng relationship with vendors' representatives. Can anybody advice ? (Anjo?)
Please don't tell me that is is about skills that particular customer have on board. There is no that significant difference between Linux and Unix. The savings are dramatic. 1M-30k ~ = 1M Even if a customer would invest 10% of savings in people (education) i believe the difference will be covered.
Can you advice any field where RISCs will bit x86 ?
Thank you in advance, Yury
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 :-)
