I have to apolgise here Dear Mark.

Your country has placed so may restrictions on "exports" that even
India (a de-facto nuclear power) does not have the privilege of having
such hardware. Even "Redhat" is afraid.

That said, I have had situation in IDC's where I have managed about 45
Rack servers and 10 Blades -- all (then) Sun X and V servers from
ground (tile floor up) for an App that is designed to tun on "only"
those servers. I know the enormous difficulties the customer faced,
and I had to help them justify.

So let us just chill.
