That's too bad.  With such a serious server, it would be nice to have
some serious disk too, so that community members could experiment with
enterprise-level performance scenarios.

Is there any chance of scaring up some real disk storage from another
interested company?  I understand the point that Sun isn't in a position
to contribute major disk hardware, but maybe someone else is?
