I am so excited to announce that I was allowed to purchase a new server...budget: $3500. So I went shopping...here are the specs:
*Dual Xeon (Quad-Core) 2.13Ghz
*16 Gb of DDR3
*4 Tb of Hard Drive Space
Nothing pre-loaded on it...
So the first thing I did was get a space set aside for it on the rack and get it placed inside. I might want to get a second power supply, it only came with one, but I don't think those are too expensive and redundant power supplies aren't that mission critical for this server. I plan to use it for mostly a file server, to increase storage space. More on what I did with the server in another post.
