... FWIW our JackRabbit unit supports 48 x 1TB (1000GB) drives in 5U ...

A terabyte here, a terabyte there, and soon you are talking about real
storage ... :)

Sun uses Opteron 280's, which are dual core socket 940 processors.  They
are limited to 4 cores and 16 GB ram.  Again, FWIW, our JackRabbit can
hit 16 cores and 64 GB ram.
