A replacement for alderaan would be great as we could easily use more RAM for our DB. I'd even say the EX40 with SSDs might be worth a look. That would probably solve our forum search issues by brute force. I'd prefer this over ECC, but I wouldn't argue if we can pay for both.
As for the current alderaan server: I'd say we cancel this as well and get at least an EX40 as build system. It's faster, has better disks and four times the RAM. The monthly fee is the same.
