One of my client has a helm cluster and they're hosting their emails, sqls and webs on different servers. At present they have P4 2.8 GHZ (almost 3 years OLD Config) server and hosting about 300 domains on them (HOSTING WEBSITES ONLY - NO EMAIL - NO SQL).
If they upgrade them to the following one... What do you think will be the capacity of the following server?
- 2x Intel Xeon 5420 Quad Core Processors
- Windows 2003 R2 Standard or CentOS Linux
- 4GIG ECC DDR2 RAM (16GIG max)
- 2x 250GIG SATAII HDD
aggreed if you bump up to scsi you will be able to double the accounts on the site. You will want to watch out though because its never good to keep all your eggs in one basket. Even on high performance servers its always better business to keep your accounts lower.
