Here is my original message:

 I don´t know if this is the correct place to ask, but we´re considering

 purchasing two Enterprise 5000 servers, and I would like to know

 Thanx in advance.

-Jerry Litteer (

 So far a great machine....

-Andrew Ho (
 Technical spec: see
 Personal experience: I prefer E4000, more flexable, and I don't pay
 things I don't need. The down side is that I need a rack to mount all
 devices I add.

 Proper name is A5000. Very fast disk throughput.
 Uses FCAL fibre loop all the way to the disk, so if you have a decent
 ( >5 disks ) then you can expect very fast I/O.
