Hardware recommendation

I don't think this is a matter between the hardware and erlang.  Its the 
OS that matters in this case.  If Solaris 10 is certified for the DL585 
and erlang works well on Solaris 10 then you shouldn't have any trouble ;-).
The DL585 is a solid opteron server. From most perspectives its no 
different from other xeon or opteron servers.  Its nothing uniquely 
"HP".  I have used erlang on many intel based PCs, servers and laptops 
with various Linux, BSD and Windows.  Can't say anything for Solaris 
expect that if Sun and HP certify Solaris 10 for this hardware you 
should be fine.
