This is my first question after i joined the premium services. I am working as IT Systems Administrator. I would like to buy two new servers for our company to replace the existing servers. Although i have got quite good skills i need expert advice from you guys. Firstly we would like to buy servers with quite good specs and also fault tolerant. Please find the details below. I will be glad if you could advice me to go for rite hardware specs.
Server 1 (Purpose: Web and sql server) Platform: OS windows server 2003 Standard)Is it wise to install both on two servers?? we have got databases running from our website
Current Database size : 15 Gb with future exp of add 20 gband we are running lot of reports, data from the server
Web server (IIS 6.0)

We also want to implement RAID solution on OS and sql database and web servers
Server 2 (Purpose Email server platform : Wind 2003 std OS and Ex 2003 Enterprise Edition)
