Really thanks for your quick answer. If you could just tell me a little more
about the number of processors of the server if I consider ther would be 40
active users ( the others working in batch): I think  4 would be good but I
m not sure. and about the E-cache, 6 GB (or less)?? I think that it would
have a need of about 0.5TB of internal/external storage for
I d like to know if you would choose an entry server or a midframe
server(SGI300, Sun enterprise4800)....

Thanks for your answer.
