Different Server Specifications
Posted on 2006-03-27
I just want to ask a broad, general question to allow for a better understanding of different server specifications.
Basically I would like to know of how many users could access a server based on all the different Intel server processors types (coupled with a supported server motherboard)
I understand that different servers have different roles and thus have different hardware capabilities such as RAID, types of Hard Drive be it SCSI, SATA etc, motherboard technologies etc. so for the purpose of this questions lets assume that each server is going to be a 2003 Microsoft Exchange Server, running 4 SATA drives in RAID 5 and each with 2GB registered RAM.
As a rule of thumb how many users could be supported with
Single Core HT Pentium 4 Processor setup -
Dual Core Pentium 4 Processor setup -
Single Xeon Processor setup -
Dual Xeon Processor setup –
