RE: What should I do with a 48-node cluster

Who cares! 48 nodes = 1 node per hour the world has left. Take delivery
now and write a personal check. : )

 I am toying with exactly that idea. My startup does Hadoop eDiscovery,
only we usually do it on EC2. Getting down to earth is exciting but

 Sure, I love hardware, but aren't the hosting costs prohibitively high?

 Hello sir,

     If you think the deal fits in your budget, better go for it. It's
just a 1 time investment and provides you more control on your cluster
than AWS. You can get your hands dirty with some config & admin stuff as
well, in case you haven't touched that part yet. But, go for it iff you
are totally confident about the machines and the person you are dealing

Someone wants to give me (OK, sell, but for the cheap) a 48-node cluster
of decent blades, a few years old. Should I even thy to think of what to
do with them, given that one can use dedicated servers and Amazon's EC2?
Thank you. Sincerely,
