Small server for around 5-10 users?
We have a building a few streets away from our main school which currently has a few standalone computers, which staff use to RDP to computers in a cupboard at the main school - not very elegant.
We're getting a 10mb link to the main school, so computers can be directly connected to the main network, but I would like a server over there too, to act as file storage for those users (to stop it all being pulled across the 10Mb line), a RODC and DNS/DHCP.
I want to avoid a full size rack server, as the comms cab has to go in an office and I don't think they'd be happy with an 800mm deep cab ;).
I'll probably go for a 600mm cab at the most, so was thinking about what could fit. Initial thought was a HP Microserver sitting outside the cab, but would this be up to the job?
Also I've found that Broadberry do some short depth 1U servers, although the cheaper ones have Atom CPU's, which I imagine could struggle as much as the Athlon II Neo in the Microserver.
Any other companies do shallow depth servers?
