    Re: Pricing an Intranet server

    I have one of those Dell PowerEdge 850 for my mail server there not bad. Was the only thing we could afford at the time but it performs fine as web/mail server.

    We've got an IBM e-series 2.8/1gig/120 gb in raid, less than a grand and performs really well.

    We use PHP/unix so diff setup to you, if you were talking about php i would recommend a NetManger by Precedence, brilliant support/pricing and it does all our filtering/email/public website aswell

    Re: Pricing an Intranet server

    Dell PowerEdge 850
    P4 / 2.8
    1GB Ram
    80GB Disk
    3yr NBD on site warranty.
    So my
    Dual Core 3.0ghz
    4GB ram
    700gb (raid 5 of 4 sata disks)

    Is a bit overkill?

    Depends how efficient your intranet site is :-)

    suprised no ones mentioned Linux, with Apache, it's free, and even I can get it to work, so it must be easy!
