this is kind of directory assistance application. actually the select statements are not
very complex. the database contain 25 million subscriber records and the operators searches 
for the subscriber numbers or addresses. there are not much update operations actually the 
update ratio is approximately %0.1 . 

i will use at least 4 machines each having 4 cpu with the speed of 2.8 ghz xeon processors.
and suitable memory capacity with it. 

i hope it will overcome with this problem. any similar implementation?
