I'm looking into purchasing a new windows 2003 file server and the following spec:
S1 Dell PowerEdge 2800 Floor Standing unit.
Dual Xeon 3.0GHz
4Gig RAM (4 x 1Gig).
6 x 146Gig Ultra 320 Hot-Swap SCSI 10k Drive.
Perc4 d/i 128MB RAID Controller.
Dual 1Gig Ethernet controller.
3-year 24 x 7 x 4 same day on-site support.
Shipping to site
Is what I've been quoted on so far at £2939.00
Plus a UPS for it.
I'm also thinking about going for a 2TB Buffalo Terrastation located in another comms cabinet across site and doing disk to disk backups to it.
Any comments good or bad?
