Never extend warranties. Always upgrade or replace the servers completely. A server has a life span of 2 - 4 years before becoming obsolete. You want to stay ahead of your game, so just make sure...

Lots of things to take into consideration. But still, if you can test it with your own apps and it works fine, then I think it's worth investigating, at least, set up a test server and see how it...

It depends on what your friend's needs are. For instance, if the server load will be light, then all types of low-end servers will do. But if she needs something with more of a punch, then she should...

It depends on what the application needs. Hardware and brands are interchangeable at this point, if they all can run it. Am I right?

In my opinion, 4 servers should suffice. You'll have one for 25 computers, and if you get good storage and RAM, you should have no trouble at all.

I think it depends on what you need. Sometimes you can build a scrapheap server and never need another one. Other times, only the top end ones will do. So figure out what you need first.

Thanks for the replies. My primary concern would also be this: support and warranty. But I'm sure that I can find dealers of second hand parts that are willing to throw in some sort of warranty.

I think that the first time you get an error like this you should think about getting new RAM. RAM is cheap, and you don't want to risk crippling errors at the wrong time.

PS3 clusters

Has any of you tried to setup a cluster of Linux running PS3's? I'm reading and thinking that, with about 16 of them you could build a super server, something that's cheaper than any other server...

External backup

Wouldn't it be safer to have a contract with an external backup company, just in case all your backup systems fail in the data center?

Safest solution?

What's the safest storage solution, the one prone to less crashes than any other? I'm trying to figure out what kind of investment should be done when it comes to storage and safety.

Raid?

Do you think the RAID technology is getting closer to becoming obsolete? What with the rise of molecular storage solutions and other types of hybrid storage solutions, how much before RAID is history?

Server for thin client solution

What will be a decent server for a network of 30 thin clients in a corporation? I was thinking IBM but people said Dell was a better solution. What do you guys think? The thin clients are HP.

I think remote control says it all. Especially when you're talking about 3000+ servers. Imagine having to get a terminal for each and every one of them, it would cost you way, way too much.
