comment How would the outside world access my machine?
The key point is open a port on the Internet side of your router in the NAT settings area and redirect that to the 8125 port on your PC on the LAN side of the router. Your PC on the LAN side will have been assigned an IP other than the local host IP i.e. not 127.0.0.1 something like 10.*.*.* or 192.168.*.*. If you are using a LAN IP address assigned by the router, you might want to consider using a static IP address in case your PC's IP address changes.

comment Server performance and disk usage portal?
I had thought of Nagios, but I am looking for something self contained to the server. I'm not sure if that makes sense but it removes the need for a centralized monitoring server. Monitoring agents are installed on the servers but handled by another division. I'd like to be able to check the situation by myself.

comment Should you still spread a hard drive order over several vendors?
It's worth taking a look at Google's research on disk failures. They have a lot of disks and have collected the data and analysed it: labs.google.com/papers/disk_failures.pdf

comment 100% uptime for a web application
Some services which advertise 100% uptime offer a penalty clause in the small print like "2 days free for every day the service is down". So the 100% is for marketing with some money reserved for paybacks. No engineer would offer 100% uptime and some would find another job if they found their services had been advertised as such with the expectation of 100% uptime. Also, maintenance windows should be arranged beforehand as part of the SLA and when planned these don't count against the 100%.
