Need help with new Server
I have some money left in the budget and I really want to buy a new server so I can upgrade to 2008R2. However, there is no way that I have the expertise to sort it out alone, especially being part-time and I wondered - a long shot I know - whether anyone knew someone down this way, or a small company, who would come and help me with it.
My normal company is charging an astronomical amount as they insist on upgrading and imaging all my machines (most of which are W7, but some are XP and I really cant see why they cant just be joined to the new domain?) and I am not sure this is really necessary (unless someone can tell me different?)
I have about £5500 for the server and install combined and it isnt enough. The worry is that I will NEVER have this amount of cash left in the future so I really need to do it now.
I currently have an HP Proliant ML150 G5 with 4GB RAM running 2003R2 and I am looking to go up to the best HP I can afford.
Any advice - except the stuff saying "oh yeah, you can do it alone", gratefully received.:)
