I guess the interesting question is how much iron are they using to
handle the workload now on Progress?  Really there's no doubt that PG
can handle the load, the question is what size box would you have to
run it on, and whether that's cost-effective compared to Progress'
requirements.

I vaguely recall some past statements by Progress-to-PG migrators to
the effect that they found PG's performance just fine by comparison.
Try digging in the mail list archives (although "progress" is likely
to be a horrible search term :-()
