We need at least 7x and can easily, effectively, and responsibly spend
60x more $ than we currently have.  A handful of solid volunteers
(another developer or two, at least 2 sysadmins, some documentation

resources we need, but to use any new hardware it would need to be
hosted and we'd also need people to deploy the gear.
