Servers

needing to find a server for work to install new software that we are currently having made

company has already supplied specifications of a server they can supply, just looking to see if there is more about!

no doubt he will be adding cpl hundred onto cost so i told him i would look direct first

Server

The server that we will supply if you order it from us, has the following specifications: -

* Dual core Intel Xeon 3050 processor 2.13 GHz, 2MB Cache, 1066 MHz FSB
* 2 GB RAM memory
* 250 GByte SATA hard disk
* CD/DVD drive
* Integral Fax Modem (for direct faxing from clients if required)
* Microsoft Windows Server 2003 SP2 or Microsoft Small Business Server 2003 R2 operating system. (this choice depends on a number of factors that we should probably discuss)

    Is that a single hard disk in a server?
    What's the brief description of what the server needs to do?
    Any indication of load?
    Do you need redundency (power, LAN, hard drives)?

    yes single hdd

    will be running a custom software using Oracle databases, needs outlook express, Sage 50 Accounts for integration purposes

    tbh, he said it needs 10gb for installation of which 85% always has to be free, so 250gb seems excessive personally

    all other desktop computers ( 6 ) + 3 laptops will connect to the software simultaneously accessing data thats updated every 5 seconds via wireless connections.

    Is Oracle going to be running on that server or do you already have a DB server?

    With a number of connections and running an Oracle database I would think that more memory would be your most likely requirement

    Throw decent shared pool and pga_aggregate targets at Oracle and it should run well

    ORIGINAL: MrMauy

    Is Oracle going to be running on that server or do you already have a DB server?


    i am led to believe Oracle will be installed onto this server and store all the information needed to run the software,

    As johnny has said if you're going to install Oracle I would look at getting more RAM, DB's tend to be fairly memory hungry depending on the size and frequency of the queries.

    Is this business critical data? If so you're going to want a mirror at a minimum, RAID 5 would be better with hot swap disks if down time is going to be an issue. You've also got the possibility of dual PSU to ensure maximum availability.
