I am planning to buy a Fujitsu RX200S6 (1U) Server with:
CPU: Intel Xeon L5630 4C/8T 2.13 GHz 12 MB
RAM: 2 x 8 GB DDR3 1333 MHz PC3-10600
HDD: 2 x HD SATA 3G 500GB 7.2K HOT PLUG 2.5"
I will install on the above server the following software:
-Windows Server 2008
-Exchange 2010 Std
-SQL Server 2008 Std
-Norton Backup Exec
The File Storage will lie on an External Storage from same manufacture know as Eternus with 5x600GB HDD (15.000rpm).
The Server will be connected to External Storage through SAS Cable.
In the near future I am planning to buy a second RX200S6 Server and add it to External storage in order to use the Virtualization option (VMware, Hyper-V etc).
Q1: Will External Storage Solution affect the read/write speed of data?
Q2: Has the above server the right qualifications for the software to be installed on him?
Q3: Do you suggest the above scenario ?
Thanks in advance!
