The cheapest they sell reportedly is .25 mill, and able to run a lot
more than 25-40 instances, though of course, that depends on how heavily

Sridhar was once saing that older gen S/390s were quite affordable, and
they are also quite linux capable, but I'd imagine that older ones would
do quite a number on your electric bill.
