HP DL380 G7 vs HP DL385 G7 (basically Intel vs AMD)
ok, Im still trying to spec up this server but its come to my attention that HP are doing a free 2nd processor promotion. So i'm specing up these 2 servers.
2 processors - 8 CORES
5 x 500GB SATA
HP DL385 G7
2 processors - 24 cores
5x 500GB SATA
both prices after cashback from HP.
So considering were a primary school with 500 users, and 150 client machines is the 24 core 16GB ram beast worth the extra £850?
I would probably buy 2 and have two virtual servers running on each.
