James I agree. I have witnessed the benefit of what you say. Putting 
your faith in one big server can be a problem if the box fails, 
especially hardware failure.

Keeping a spare server in a rack that can be switched in to service 
quickly can save you if one dies. Time (waiting for parts), most 
failures are hardware if your running FreeBSD. Even most Linux boxes.
