We came from 3 Power 6's to 3 Power 8's.
9117-MMA -->> S824, All SSD's
8203-E4A -->> S814, All SSD's
9408-M25 -->> S814, spinning disks

We settled on spinning disks on the last one because it was a third level
of replication and sandbox machine.
We got a pretty good deal on SSD's on the first two. Not that we're even
close to needing more but when the boss recently priced SSD's he is so
glad he took the deal.

Can't remember exactly why we went 824 vs 814. Both machines have 8
lpars: 2 vios, 1 AIX, 5 IBM i. IBM i lpars are type split: 1 Domino
DMZ, 1 Infor and other "traditional", 1 Development, 1 heavy Domino, 1
hosting lpar. The development and production lpars are Mimixed over to
the 814. The other 814 is 2 vios, no AIX, 1 host of IBM i, 1 triple
replica of Domino, 1 sandbox lpar, 1 Domino DMZ, no Mimix.
