The CERN server is larger than NCSA (at least, larger than NCSA without
the HUGE_ patch :-) and considerably slower.

I have a ten processor SC2000 system with 1.5GB of RAM.

It doesn't have a web server running on it right now but I could
certainly install one. 

Our web server ( is a dual processor SS20 with 256MB
of memory (temporarily).  It has the advantage of being an active
server (US mirror for the internet movie database).  So when we have
a stable enough server to put into a production environment that
will be an active test case.

Between the two I think we have Sun MP well covered.
