I have 5 Windows (XP and VISTA) workplaces that need to connect to the server.
3 Databases will be running.
1 x MySql Database (inventory management system)
2 x Sybase iAnywhere Databases (DHL shipment database and Accounting Software)
Does anybody have an idea what would be a good solution? Should I get a "real" server or simply get a normal Desktop PC with Windows and use this as server.
On the one hand I want a fast solution, but on the other hand I do not want to pay a lot of money for a server solution where I could connect a thousand clients when I only have five. For example: I don't want to get a Quad Core server when three of the processors never even kick in since there are only one or two connections at a time.
What do you use in your small business office? Any suggestions?
