I already ran the two-server idea past the decision makers.  It was 
rejected, even though this server I just built is going to replace an 
existing one purely to add the extra storage, and so it could have just 
acted as a storage side-car to the existing server instead.  I don't 
know whether it was rejected on rack space limits or "cleanliness" or 
whatever.  All I got was, "no".
