    Just out of curiousity, why did you choose to get one extremely powerful server versus a few powerful balanced servers?

    All linked togeather via Gigabit ethernet.

    This server will become the main node in the setup, and increase the sites ability to grow by 7-11% in our studies.

    What is the web site that is supported by all of this?

    Good job. I am not sure why people need to start throwing around benchmarks particularly when they don't know

    a) what homework you have done

    b) that different APPLICATIONS benefit from different setups.

    From the looks of yours, you have an app that loves memory, chances are will benefit from a dual channel scsi setup and is probably the DB server base. I could be way off but thats my guess based on almost no information. In that case, for a busy chatty db instance multiple processors and even HT will benefit.

    Doing large running complex queries the Opterons are better. So good job SeeServers and to answer your question, yes you can tell someone to shut up if warranted. wm2100 is a smart guy but is clearly not thinking of the big picture. Maybe AMD is giving him a cut

    Thanks for understanding Sigmaservers,

    Yes our app does like to use all the memory it can, and loves to be mean to the HDD's.

    congratulations on the decision and the purchase.

    if you have an old machine that you are tossing out (half as powerful). ..............


    for something like this, does dell send someone to help you get it running?

    They arent sending somone to help, but they are installing all of our software, and configuring the server for us, so all we have to do is get it to the Datacenter and plug it in.

    but we do get a dell Tech Manager.

    Talking of Dell, I've got a Dell machine here that's just gone down with a dead CPU, let's see how long it takes to get a Dell engineer here to fix it (this machine has the best support Dell sell with it).

    It's now 3:44 AM here, and I'm told I should have someone here within 6 hours, i'll keep you posted.

    As far as I remember, Gaia uses ~20 servers, and has less than 2.5million users, so probably not. I think Gaia goes for the clustered approach, it seems to work better that way for all the different things they run.

    The thread starter has made a decision.

    If you wish to discuss server benchmarks, please continue that discussion here.
    There is no best host. There is only the host that's best for you.

    He said "I bought", so he's made a decision.

    I think you missed the activity earlier...a certain member was being a right arse, hence why SoftWareRevue stepped in
