I'm hoping to run across an E3000 (pedestal, FC-AL external, SCA
internal drives, up to 8? CPUs in 4? trays...) sometime soon. I
spec'ed and ordered one for Lucent in 1997 or 1998, so not quite
on-topic, but I do know a few have surfaced for free/cheap recently.
That's about the only Sun I'm trying to keep an eye out for that has a
CPU enclosure larger than a 3U box. I also worked with some E5000s,
but that's a lot more Sun than I need in my house.
(whose present active Sun is a SPARC5/110)
