What is the size of the dataset?  What is the size of the daily
change?  What is the size and throughput restrictions of respective
internet connectivity?  Is there (and how big is the) budget?  Are
the machines under the control of local administrators, or are they
hands-off remote hosted?  Are there any restrictions (say, inability
to hire or use Canadian based services) that might be relevant?
