Re: When will 128M not be enough?

You're doing the wrong thing. The 2650 can hold 8-10 full views currently, and it's my guess that it will continue to be adequate for at least 24 months. It costs about $3K. The alternative is a 7206VXR. Let's posit that that would cost $30K and last for four years. The cost of the 7206 is thus five times higher than simply buying appropriate technology and upgrading as necessary. Plus if you upgrade over time, you get to have new technology in the future, rather than being stuck with what will seem like an old clunker for several years. -Bill
