New Webserver

I think I've gone a little OTT on the spec

How's this for a spec.

14Ghz processing power (4 x 3.66Ghz Xeon MP's)
8Gb RAM
1.5 TB hard disk (5 x 300Gb)
Gigabit fibre internet connection

The server runs 200 websites (of which 3 have sql databases the rest are static) and the total unique daily visitors to the server won't exceed 2,000.

LOL :)

Lots of potential I guess

Yeah! Still no happy there. Might go from the 32Gb option. Only an extra 2k.

Mmmm that does look nice. How about 2 servers which add up to that spec? Or two of the ones above?! Lets have a bit of load balencing/failover as well... then it really would rock :D yummm

Speaking of dream machines, I just found my dream network.

I put up a Dell PowerEdge at a colo yesterday. The network is balanced between about 4 different providers, all of which are in the same building as the colo. When I got home and logged in, it was so fast I thought it was local.

only 2000 uniques from 200 websites?

anyways, if you find you've got space to spare (unlikely with that puny little setup but who knows), i've got a forum you could host!

Nice rig, but with that much riding on that one box, I'd have opted for 2 halfs of that server load balanced :).

For $2k more, I'd probably opt for that extra RAM that's a steal. Just make sure your OS supports it as does teh MOBO.

Who makes the server?

<small>you can't add up processor speed</small> :)

2,000 visitors from 200 sites

Would it not be cheaper to just fax your content to visitors instead of running a server.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the comments (and giving my ego a boost).

Load balancing and redundancy is being taken care of in other ways.

only 2000 uniques from 200 websites?
anyways, if you find you've got space to spare (unlikely with that puny little setup but who knows), i've got a forum you could host!

Sadly, not. The sensitive data will mean I can't host out, otherwise my sites would be on there.

Who makes the server?

It's a HP server that is being customised.

What's a fax? lol.
