monthly cost in case that wasn't clear :-)

https://www.manitu.de/root-server/pro/root-server-pro-qs/ (set memory
to 256GB and add some of the storage disks)

and to add on the EC2 costs for sake of completeness: If using
spot-pricing (i.e. where you set a limit how much you want to spend
per hour, and if the actual price exceeds that limit the box is shut
down) currently is around 0.3$/hour (without yearly fee) for the
c3.8xlarge (32core, 60GB RAM) one.
ec2's processors are higher-speced, but of course with the "can be
shutdown any time if there are load-spikes in EC2 and thus the
price/hour increases" not for stuff that should reliably run 24/7 -
and of course you're kind of limited what you want to install onto
those - creating additional VMs within is not supported, while on a
dedicated server you can fire up additional VMs for whatever purpose
you need...
