We are looking at Dual Processor, Intel only, 800Mhz or better, Dual NICs (preferably eepro100's), 9GB of SCSI storage space, and 1GB of memory all in a 1U case. Must be Linux and FreeBSD compatible hardware.
I am currently looking at the offerings of penguincomputing.com, valinux.com, dell.com and, just for fun, indybox.com. Support for the machine is required and all of the hardware should be included without us having to crack the case. Obviously, we want to keep our costs low, without buying cheap hardware. Using the bang/buck algorithm here.
Any suggestions? Currently, our price point looks to be from $2000-$3000, and we intend on buying two machines.
