My experience is that equipment that costs 10x as much has only a tiny
improvement in reliability, especially if you are putting everything on
a stable power feed. In any case you can run your inbound scanners on
MX relays that don't store anything important. If one breaks the next
retry will go through the backup MX and you can replace it for less than
a few months support changes on enterprise equipment.
