Help choose server

  Asked By: Lavanya    Date: Dec 05    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1418

I'm looking at a refurb Dell PowerEdge 2600 rackmount server with dual
2.4Ghz Xeon processors, 1gb RAM, and a single 36gb SCSI drive (no RAID).
Cost is about $1,700. This is at the max of our budget.

We can save $300-$400 by going for a tower system with a single
processor. Or, for about the same cost, we can get a single processor
tower system with RAID.

This is for a local not-for-profit, so cost is a major concern.

At this point, we're expecting about 50 users as the max that would be
accessing the system at any given time. So, save a few hundred bucks,
dual Xeon processors, or RAID?

BTW, the SQL database will probably be on a dual 1.0 Ghz processor RAID
5 system.

Determine whether it is critical to stay up and running....if your HD
crashes and you cant get back up....the RAID would look pretty good to me...
