I took delivery of 40 GB of ECC memory for my cloud. Excluding tax, the
total cost was $420 plus tax, or $10.50 per GB (shipping was free).
This is a question that everyone should ask himself or herself
regularly: Would our users be willing to spend an extra $50 per server
for a faster database? How can we use memory better to improve
performance. And, does it make sense to sacrifice adequate memory
performance to work in low memory situations?
