New Server and New Raid Controller for Shared Hosting servers with Cpanel
We are looking for a new server model which we can use for our shared hosting servers. Because of new CPU models, we are forced to move on also with a different server type. Because rackspace and power is expensive, we try to have as many servers as possible in the rack and keep the power consumption down.
Our new servers would have two E52620 CPUs. Now we can choose between the following supermicro servers:
Above you can also see the raid card which is included in this servers. Are this real raid controllers? Before we used 3Ware or Adaptec Raid controllers, but this new servers don't have enough space for this cards anymore. Therefore we have to use the built-in raid controllers.
Can someone recommend me, which of the above servers is better? Or is there any other, better solution?
