Been thinking about this for a while, but now need to make a decision quickly. Unsure of
which way to go between the SuperMicro system below or a Dell PowerEdge T320. Both
of the specs are fairly similar. The SuperMicro is what my hardware supplier has
recommended as they are a SuperMicro System Integrator / Reseller. I have never ordered from Dell before so do not have any experience with their server products in regards of creating raid and preinstalled operating systems etc. The one I picked has SBS 2011 factory installed.The SM would probably be easier to configure , but that would not put
me off the Dell if it is better. I would upgrade the RTB warranty to a 3 year on site so
if any problems do arise I should be covered at least as well as the Dell.
Would appreciate any thought/comments.
