Default Want to start my own mini data center?

Hi all,

I have recently purchased 10 Dell Poweredge servers to see if I could setup a mini data center.

What OS would I use? How would I go about doing this?

Thanks all!

Yeah, could you go into more specifics. Example: Are you building a virtual network? Windows environment? Linux? Do you have a rack?

Or are you just curious how loud the fans on a Dell Poweredge are?

For the record: They are loud.

Few months ago I have setup just a small dedicated server at my office with the help of PC, Router, Broadband connection with static IP. I have setup a complete dedicated server just like one at real data center. I have just build this for test purpose.

I have made my server continuously live for one month under observation with power backup and cooling equipment. I have attached one domain on my server to see how it behaves and result was really amazing. Website loads as quick as it is hosted on real profession dedicated server. I have test this with at a time 8 to 10 ping request and it loads very quickly. As I assume my server can easily handle 20 to 30 requests at a time.

I have used basic system config with all freely available software like Centos as a OS and Kloxo as a control panel. Now I also want to setup now fully functional mini data center at my home's basement with 8 to 10 systems. I will hire few people for monitoring my data center.

Since you are starting a Mini Data Center i would recommend Linux OS they are open source OS there is not much red tape for the licensing like Windows.

Dell servers are extremely loud when not in a data center setting.

I agree with ITivan that Linux is the best choice, CentOS in my opinion being the easiest to set up and work with if you are just playing around.
