Need a server that will supply a few services to 25 user's. This server will run SBS 2003 R2 standard, it will run Exchange services. Of course be the domaine controler. I also have a need for 2Tb of storage. I think a Proliant ML350 would be ok for the job but many many options are available. I would think that I would need 2 Quad-Core Xeon E5410, 4Gb of RAM, RAID5 configuration with 4x 500Go, redundant Power and fan and a second network card.
Maybe I need a second server for file storing? Should I use 2 drives in RAID 1 for OS and 3 other drives in RAID 5 for DATA? I was thinking of Virtuel servers for redondancy, ether Microsoft virtuel server or VMWare. Budget about 6500$ for this. What do you think?
