I'm bigoted, so my first choice would be an SGI Origin 350 with 4 700MHz
CPUs with an PCI-X module. If I could get faster CPUs, I would. If I expect
that I never will go beyond 4 CPUs, then a tezro in a rack mount will do.

If you are a sun shop you should probably be thinking of a SunFire V480 and
up. Which one depends on CPU speed and number of expansion slots. You should
perhaps go for a system which backs up to disk and then clones to tape (that
is what we are planning for the time being).
