I self administer a small office with one Server Essentials and five Pcs with Windows 10.

My local data storage level is about 190 gb at moment with a server capacity of 500gb.

The server is Fujitsu five years old but working OK.

I want to upgrade the server to a more modern one and I have in mind a raid 1 two disk set up of about 1000gb per disk.

I have looked at the usual suspects, Dell and HP but not fujitsu again, although their build quality seems good.
For Pcs I have used PC Specialists, a UK form that I have used and been impressed with, for PCs.

They also offer to construct servers and I wondered at the wisdom of this, to steer away from the crowd.

They are offering to fit SSDs amongst the options.

I wondered specifically whether you have any views on SSDs for servers and generally on my proposition to go away from Dell/HP/ Fujitsu.
