I am looking to use Microsoft Server 2012 Essentials for a client. Will be my first time using it. Since I am really just using it for file sharing, does anyone see an issue with using a souped up computer setup?
With this configuration, if a hardware component was to fail, I figure I could swap it out quickly with a spare system.
Wasn't sure of the need to use Raid, etc.
Would a good built system, Quad Core Intel, etc, give me better performance than the HP Microserver's with the AMD Turion II Neo N40L 1.5GHz 2-Core?
