I'm currently looking at hardware specs for a samba server, its' job
will be to hold general office files, cad / solidworks files along with
approximately 40 outlook PST files that will be opened off the server.
Here are the current specs I'm looking at..
Asus A7N8X Deluxe nVidia Serial ATA
2 x 512 MB PC2700 DDR 333 = 1024MB
ASUS S520/Generic 52X CD-ROM (OEM)
ASUS GrForce4 MX440-8X 64MB DDR
D-Link DGE-550T 32/64-Bit PCI-Bus Copper (RJ45)
3Ware Escalade 7500-8
8 x 40gb ata-100 7200.7 drives
3Ware Escalade 7500-4
4 x 40gb ata-100 7200.7 drives
The 7500-8 will be holding the office and cad / solid works files and
the 7500-4 will be holding the PST files (I thought it was best to keep
them on a separate controller cards.)
Will this do a reasonable job in keeping up with a gigabit network? And
is running PST files off the server like this a feasible option??
Any suggestions on hardware improvements would be appreciated as without
the hardware to test with I'm purchasing quite blindly here :|
