Hi all,
I am this " " close to ordering a Dell Poweredge SC1425 rack server. My HW config will be:
- 2 x 64-bit Intel® Xeon processor 2.8GHz with 1MB L2 cache
- 4GB DDR2 SDRAM (4x1GB 400MHz DIMMs)
- 1 x 80GB SATA Hd
- 1 x 160GB SATA Hd

The server will only run an IBM Lotus Domino 6.5.x server for:
- email (10 users)
- web (9000 individual visitors/month) and
- newsletter distribution (28.000 subscribers (2 bursts/month)
- some semi-simple web-applications

I'm running all this on a 1x933MHz Celeron with 1Gb RAM today.

Can you Gurus (said in the nicest tone ;-)) tell me if I'm on the right track with this config?
Will I run into any snafus with the 64 bit arch? Am I braindead when I choose SATA instead of SCSI?

What do you think? Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Thanks

/Hsnm.

If this was to be used as a my desktop I would use SATA due to lower cost. For a server,
the SCSI protocol has features that might achieve better overall performance under
certain high load situations.

To achieve the highest performance, look into the read/write profile of Domino. IBM may
provide information that indicates which file system parameters will provide the best overall
performance.

Thanks, will look into the Domino filesystem preference stuff. No other suggestions/ideas? Anyone?
