DDR2? Isn't that kind of old ram to be using? What kind of cpu's are 
going to be used? I would hope for a dual quad core system for both 1U 
servers you are getting and hopefully any parts that fail are easily and 
very quickly replaceable and not proprietary as so have very minimum 
down time if at all.
