i7-2600 vs E3-1275 vs i7-3930K


Hello,

I have a question for a web server, Which ones is better for shared hosting services?

Server 1

Intel i7-2600 Quad-Core
32 GB DDR 3 RAM
2 x 3 TB SATA 6 Gb/s HDD; 7200 rpm (Software-RAID 1)

Server 2

Xeon E3-1275 Quad-Core
16 GB DDR 3 RAM ECC
2 x 120 GB SSD OCZ Agility 3 (Software-RAID 1)

Server 3

Intel i7-3930K Hexa-Core
64 GB DDR 3 RAM
2 x 3 TB SATA 6 Gb/s HDD; 7200 rpm (Software-RAID 1)

I want it for speed and reliability not for "Unmetered" Services

Thanks

Personally I would choose E3 series because you are guaranteed to have ECC memory, which is critical for data integrity in busy servers.

I would rather server #2, as long as my combined data was under the 120GB amount. Otherwise I would increase the SSD size, but still stay with the rest of those specifications.

Server #2, although I would be wary of only having 120 gigs of total storage space.. Still, if you're not concerned about that fact #2 should work out for you.

Your stated criteria is speed and reliability, so it has to be the Xeon with SSDs. You probably won't squeeze as many accounts into it as the others (depending on i/o load) but they are more likely to still be up in 12 months.

Have a look at hardware RAID options also, if your budget stretches, and also do some background digging on the OCZ drives - some SSDs have less than stellar reputations and I can't remember where the OCZ drives sit.

Server 2 gets my vote but the storage is not enough for shared hosting unless your doing 100mb packages

Server #2 except for the fact that you would probably want to save a few dollars and get the E3-1270 which does not have a GPU and instead use a server board with IPMI 2.0/ KVM-over-IP.

On the SSD side, they are pretty decent, but you need to be on stable firmware. Bad OCZ firmware is no good.

On the i7-3930K, you also want to look at which revision it is. The early versions did no support VT-d (if that is important for you.)

If speed an reliability is the main factor, go with the E3 (#2) hands down. ECC ram will be used which from many years of first hand experienced, makes a world of a difference when running servers coupled with SSD drives, you cant go wrong. 16GB ram for the most part is plenty too.

Thank you all!

So the final setup is :

1x Xeon E3-1275 for web server
1x Xeon E3-1275 for mysql server
1x Xeon E3-1275 for dns server
1x Intel i7-2600 for data backup

i will buy the r1soft for data backup, is there any better option?
