Server Specs

Hi,

I was wondering if EEs could help me with specs for a server that we are trying to get.

We will put over at least 20000 of pdf on this server, 50 users will access this server locally.  Each pdf in average is about 15MB.  We might use indexing on this server as well.  thx

Hello!

Given that you have to do a lot of storage you should get at least 1TB or 2TB of disk space and because people will stress the server downloading something in the range of 3-4GB of RAM, a dual core proccesor is a must.

Good luck!

We have a web app hosted in our data center, end users will login and select pdf and view, then key in to web app of whatever displayed on pdf , this is not an issue since data center has nothing but the bandwidth.  We want to setup a fullfillment center.  Bandwidth will become an issue with 50 people and pdf sized in 15-20mb.

Since we have local copy of what data center has, I am thinking to have web traffic goes to data center but serves up pdf locally.

I am thinking to have a
1. RAID 5 (1T X 4 = 3T)
2. MIRROR OS (500G X 2)
3. RAM (8 - 16G)

I am thinking to have a special network card that can combine 4 cables into one that will boost up the speed.  Do you think this is fine?  thanks

Here is my challenges, if I go to dell, there are so many different servers, which one should I start and customize it?  thx
I don't normally buy dell, but I think the  PowerEdge T410 Tower Server is the starting point for dual processors. That should be listed under servers/tower servers
