[nycbug-talk] 1U Server Recommendations
Tue Jan 11 19:45:23 EST 2005
In the past one of the guys I've worked with has been pretty happy with
the boxed supermicro servers. They're basically a SM server board in a
pretty decent chassis, so we order that, processors, memory, ZCR card and
However I'm a bit intrigued by all the new AMD 64-bit stuff. Since the
next box will be doing a fair amount of Postgres work, that might be
helpful if only by allowing more RAM. Also looking at the prices on Xeon
chips, AMD looks like a steal.
Supermicro doesn't offer any AMD stuff, so I'm looking for some general
recommendations. We don't want any homemade beige-box stuff nor do we
want to pay a premium for someone else to put together some "it may work
with FreeBSD" beige-box stuff. :)
Suggestions? Our budget is OK, but not huge. We're frugal but not dumb.
