by 'wolfpack' are you referring to a beowulf cluster?  No need.  'Wulfs 
are generally computational rather than availability, clusters.  Unless 
the hit rate gets a LOT higher, we don't need more'n 2-3 servers, IMNSHO.

Current corporate changeout plans that I'm aware of for servers are 2-3 
years.  I expect that to start flattening some, as I don't expect 5 GHz 
Pentiums or Opterons any time soon... too hot to deal with.
