Windows Server 2k8 32 or 64 bits
Posted on 2011-05-10
People use to say that if you are going to use less than 4gb, you would go a Win7 32 bits. If more than this, 64 bits, obviously because of the memory limits.
My question is about the server. I am about to install a new server to test Backup Exec (believe me or not, we were using a Pentium 3 with 1GB ram).
I am not planning to use more than 4GB for RAM becase as you could see, 1GB was supporting the backup. I have both licenses (32 and 64 bits), so I was wondering if a 32 bits would be enough or even improve perfomance because of the RAM assigned.
It´s virtualized server, so assigning more vCPUs or RAM will improve Data Transfer?
