Our servers are not racked, so a new one does not have to be. *If* it is
possible, I'd like to replace the main server with a new one. I could
tweak the new one the way I need it and work with the vendor to make
sure everything works well. In either case, I'll still need to test how
positioning of the tables/indexes across a raid10 will perform.  I am
also waiting onProIV developers feedback.  If their ProvIV modules will
not run under AMD64, or take advantage of the processor, then I'll stick
with the server we have.
