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.

You're just showing off now ;)

That is a dream system for sure!

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?

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.
