      I have been doing R & D to finalize best possible stable and high performing combination of hardware components since last 20-25 days and are almost done with all combinations. But am stuck with above points. It would be really great if somebody from intel or any community member can help me in finding a solution to our problem by suggesting appropriate hardware with exact model number and configuration and a reference link from where we can get more information on product.
