Memory was cheap but now its cheaper.

Its my impression that hardware costs tend to fall in January. Possibly due to lower demand... In any case I have had a look at the cost of servers with large amounts of memory and can see they are cheaper than the system I bought a year ago.


Memory in GBCost with 2+ GHz processors
24£1,800
64£4,200
1024£53,000

Imagine running a JVM using close to 1 TB of memory of commodity hardware. :D
