THanks Steve,

What specific processor's are you using for your server, also, is it a
brand-name? I would be interested in hearing about the HW involved and
what you are using them for (generally eg how many domUs and what they
do). As i am sorting initial thoughts on our HW choices at the moment.

We are currently looking at IBM sSeries dual-processor servers with
dual core processors. These have been released in the US and are
schduled for release here (in New Zealand) Jan 2006.
