I imagine it'll be app/db on the larger box and the 2 smaller systems being app/webservers. I need to verify this. Given the Java part of the equation their memory requirements are bound to go up. :) For all the Java cruft required I was planning on sticking with packaged installs from Jpackage so I should probably check what they have available.
