I just got a Sun (I refuse to say "Oracle") T5240 server. No disks, but otherwise a nice configuration with dual 8-core CPUs, 64GB (16x4GB) RAM, a pair of single port 8GB/sec fibre channel PCIe cards, and a quad gigabit PCIe network card (in addition to the quad on-board ports). If I'm interpreting the motherboard FRU number correctly, it's the (fatest) 1.6GHz version. All in all none too shabby for $260 Canadian funds (roughly $195 USD, or $180 EUR). And that included shipping and taxes. I think I got a great deal. (And if I didn't, don't tell me!
And before anyone asks: no I don't really have a practical use for all those cores/threads. I was considering a (single-CPU) T5220 even though that was overkill for my needs. I saw several of them around the $200 USD price point before shipping and taxes. Then I stumbled upon this T5240 from a seller who was having a "half off" sale. I couldn't resist the temptation, and before I knew what had happened, I had clicked "Buy It Now".
I'm looking forward to learning about LDoms, zones, Solaris 11, and lots more about ZFS. I've used everything from SunOS 4.1.4 to Solaris 10 (with a little ZFS knowledge) on other machines, so Solaris 11 will be an interesting and much more up-to-date addition to the collection.
