Considering an iSeries DSD box

Notes/Domino on the iSeries has been our company's platform of choice. We have only recently leased our first DDS for an off-site customer support application and are having good success with it. Our company is commencing plans to bring our entire outsourced websites into a Domino environment located at our HQ office. Our current Domino Web server is a Windows-based OS with minimal activity so we have nothing to benchmark for sizing this server. There are several sizing challenges here: The majority of the existing Web sites are static HTML. By moving to Domino applications on an OS400 server, we require the response time to be comparable (or improved) under Domino as it is today with static HTML -- adequate ports, processor, memory, etc. We have site traffic reports available to us. The platform needs to be stable and easily expandable because there are discussions of additional applications that do not exist today. Should a DDS still be considered for this mission critical environment? What sizing resources should be referenced on such a venture?
Yes, I would definitely consider an iSeries DSD box for a "mission critical environment". The Domino/iSeries platform combination is highly regarded as the most stable solution available.
