    Eclipse.net

    I'm looking to find out what hardware those of you running Eclipse.net have it running on and what performance is like. We're looking to move to this and I need to price up some kit to run it on.

    We run it inside a vm with a couple of CPU and 2gb ram - works nicely and is also open facing to the internet for the web parts.

    I was thinking perhaps one of these little HP servers?

    Yeah im sure it would run it fine - it's pretty much just sql (2005) with an IIS front end

    Those are the ones.

    I'm thinking of something like this with more RAM? That way I could also run some other stuff on it, internal sites and such.

    I don't see why not - ours is used by two pc's in the library with the Web - parts accessible by everyone from outside school aswell as inside on a machine with less processor capacity then that.

    We run Eclipse.net on a VM with 2 cpu's, 4gb of ram and it flies well.

    So I'm thinking that HP ProLiant ML330 with an extra 2GB of RAM should serve well, even if if it's not running in a VM?

    As a side note, can you convert from Eclipse2 to Eclipse.net easily?

    Yeah if I remember rightly, you can. I am sure I did it for 1 of the schools I used to work for. Think there is an upgrade section after the installation of Eclipse.net

    Great, thanks! I've asked MLS to be sure before I begin planning.
