comment Cheap server platform with support for >12 GB RAM
After buying both DL120, DL160 and DL360 systems, I strongly advise against buying a 100-series machine again. They're cheap in every dimension.

comment Recommend server hardware
You should plan on around $1,500 or so to get anything labeled a "server." Dell sells some cheap models, there's also the Mac mini server. Generally most all "servers" are on the louder side. Your app might be perfectly happy running on a castoff desktop if you're really strapped, or need something between now and the next FY, just make sure you're well backed up. Or ask around other departments for machines coming off warranty - at UM it's not uncommon for machines being replaced to get handed down.

Mac mini "server edition" has two disks which can be RAID 1'd.
