This is good to know - I've got a new Dell PowerEdge 2900 quad-core, 4GB
RAM, 6*146Gb SAN disks on RAID-5 controller arriving in the next week or
two as a new database server. Well, more like a database development
machine - but it will host some non-production databases as well. Good
to know Dell can be relied on these days, I was a bit concerned about
that when purchasing sent me a copy invoice from Dell - particularly
since I was originally told an IBM was on the way.
Good ol' purchasing, can always rely on them to change their minds last
minute when they find a cheaper system.
