i have been give the task to purchase a new server.
this server will need to count frequently 15 million records on a database that is about 40gb and give back answers in no more that 5 secords
i have been told that i should be looking at at least a 4cpu system, but i am struggling to find one under £10,000
i am also sturggling to find anybody that sells server parts as i thought this might be a cheaper option.
any suggestions or starting points would be very helpful
