Suggestions for small business server
Posted on 2013-05-23
We are replacing our old server tower after 10 years. We are a small business that uses the server for two applications and web/sql server. It also performs other misc tasks.
Please post recommendation for a rack server. We have briefly looked at Dell, Lenovo and Supermicro servers. This server will likely be setup for Virtualization as we can eventually upgrade to a modern server OS like 2012 Microsoft Server... Currently we will image our existing server array.
Please make suggestion on Virtualization software. I am not fimilar with the different options and capibilities of different Vm's. I heard there are free versions and I believe all we need is the basic.
Lastly, please recommend a vendor for purchasing economy or basic racks setup and components.
