We should be using fiber, which also costs less power and is orders of
magnitude faster.

If the words "enterprise-class" actually mean something more than
"much larger markup than purchasing components" then go with something
like http://www.marvell.com/company/news/pressDetail.do?releaseID=3576

For example, maybe the http://www.mitac.com/business/gfx_servers.html
people have benchmarks representative of our DB/cache usage patterns.
It's not like we have anything special (or x86-specific, Jasper!)
other than very high bandwidth.

At least put out an RFP, please.
