I'm looking to run windows 2K3 server on a single box to host a number of small websites. I have two dedicated servers in mind :
2.8 GHz Intel Pentium 4 processor
1 GB RAM
120 GB IDE
£79 + VAT / Month
AMD Athlon 64 3,000+
1GB DDR RAM
2x80 GB hard drive (RAID1)
£69 + VAT / month
I guess the bottom line is the processors on these two but I've seriously lost touch with the hardware market place so I have no idea which is best.
Neither of these come with a good mail setup so any other comparable services with something like mail enable and spam assassin preinstalled + webmail would be useful.
AMD is alot faster, if their raited the same speeds amd still usually has a gain
2.8 is comparable to a AMD 2800, that amd is raited to be as good or better then a P3 3.0GHZ as amd's run slower clockspeeds
Go AMD. Faster processor and 2 vs 1 drives. Having redundancy and faster speed... no brainer.
That's conclusion enough for me I think.
What about some alternatives. I just had to uninstall all the mail server that one of my dedicates shipped with and install spam assassin and an attachment filter. Is there a server that comes with this preinstalled to save me some headaches?
Ideally IMAP compatible too with webmail.
