Static content is good, and allows the the web servers to perform at
fairly high capacity.

A Dell/EMC Clariion AX100 and some sort of I/O fencing for the database
servers would be nice.  I like WTI switches, but other people like the
APC 7900/7920/7921.

If you're not doing RR DNS or you don't have a load balancer out front,
you might want to grab something to act as an IPVS director.
