I think, some information is still missing.. what is your present hardware, from past how many years you are using it, storage, size of database, what is your database growth every year.

how many users use the system..and what exactly they they just pull the data using some report tool or do they load bulk data or update load going to increase in future either by increase in no of users in same application or by procurement of new modules or by procurement of altogether different applications.

then you should think of which intel server cpu you will be can use rhel or ee linux from oracle (mostly this will be more stable for ebiz)..think on how kernel responds to your ebiz the os can handles disk i/o, backup loads etc

I think there are some of the points you should consider..thanks..subodh
