Is my hardware good enough for SBS2003
Posted on 2003-10-23
We have about 20 users.
We are gonna run MS SmallBusinessServer 2003.
We are gonna use Exchange Server, SQLServer and ISA Server included with SBS 2003
We are gonna purchase Dell PowerEdge 2600 Server with the following specs
Dual 3.06GHz Xeon 1M cache
Raid 10, 4X36GB, 15K rpm
Dual power supply
Is the Dell server good enough to support both Exchange server and SQL server for 20 users access?
The company who makes the SQL application software suggest us a dedicated server for SQL, but that means we have to purchase
1. a second DELL server
2. Windows 2003 Server for 20 users
3. Windows SQLServer 2000 for 20 users
a lot more money to spend.
Any suggestions based on your real field experience?????
