I need to buy a server that will run an e-learning intranet. And your advice on what to buy would be greatly appreciated.
Or even at least if you can direct me to the correct source of information online this would be greatly appreciated.
The server must be capable of running an intranet which has been built using .net technology (win 2000/2003 server) and its data source which will be on the same machine will be sql server 2000. The web sites primary function is to serve up flash movies and at the same time track & train 100's of individuals. I am in a company that has approx 7000 employees so there could potentially be thousands logged on at any one time.
My problem is I know very little about servers and dont want to buy something which will be inadequate for the job.
If you could suggest a spec that would be suitable this would be excellent. My company generally uses Dell but I will look at other options if you think they are better.
I know this is not strictly a network question but I wasn't sure where else on this site to post a question about servers, and generally network geeks have a reasonable knowledge of servers so there you go.
