Mac Pro as LAMP Server

Hello,

We currently use a old HP PC (P4, 1 GB Ram) as a LAMP server (running Mandriva 2010).  It runs one website, and has a few tables.  One table has millions of entries (hourly data for approximately 120 devices for the last 4 years).  It works great, web queries are returned within seconds, but we are concerned about the hardware age and are looking to replace the hardware.

We are thinking of using a Mac Pro tower.  Does anyone recommend this?  Are there any downsides?   When running OS X Server it seems that all components would be installed and ready to go.

Thanks

Thanks for the info.  I should have been a bit clearer, I planned a Mac Pro running OS X Server, which should already have the pieces in place.

In that scenario, does anyone foresee any problems.
