Check my Sims server spec and quotes if you can provide them!
Just looking at specing a new server to run Sims on.
I am planning on running Windows 2008 64 Bit + Full SQL 2008 on it. It will only be running sims and wont need to do any other work.
I am looking at the spec below from Dell.
Base:PowerEdge T310 Tower Chassis for Up to 4x 3.5" Hot Plug HDDs with LCD Diagnostics
Processor:Intel&® Xeon&® X3460, 2.8Ghz, 8MB Cache, Turbo, HT
Memory:12GB Memory, DDR3, 1333MHz (6x2GB Dual Ranked RDIMMs)
Raid Connectivity:C23 Hot-Swap - RAID 1/RAID 1 for SAS6/iR/PERC6i/H200/H700, 2 Primary + 2 Add. SAS/SATA Hot Plug HDDs
1st RAID or SCSI Controller Card:SAS 6/iR Internal Controller for Hot Plug HD Configuration
1st Hard Drive [MQ]:146GB, SAS, 3.5-inch, 15K RPM Hard Drive (Hot Plug) x 2
2nd Hard Drive [MQ]:146GB, SAS, 3.5-inch, 15K RPM Additional Hard Drive (Hot Plug) x 2
Power Supply:Redundant Power Supply (2 PSU) 400W
Optical Devices:16X DVD+/-RW Drive with SATA Cable for Win2K8 R2
Do people think this will be sufficient?
(The school has 1200 students and about 80-90 simultaneous sims users)
Any obvious changes people would make?
Also if any suppliers are about can any quote me for such a spec?
