Ben, need to select PC hardware servers for Groov on this tunnel job. Have no feel for how much PC hp is needed to run a web server.
This system will have 2 Groov windows servers (one for redundancy) and will serve at minimum 6 clients each with 6 display monitors each, so I have no idea how many pages will be displayed on each but I’ll assume 6 pages each. So lets say a minimum of 36 pages of Groov being served out simultaneously.
I have been considering 2 options, one definitely more expensive than other. First and cheapest one would be a Lenovo with 16 gig ram and i7-6700 somewhere around $800. Second would be an actual file server with winserver and E3 chip and raid, etc, etc. This would probably start at $1800 and go to minimum of $2500.
I’m not a tightwad but if the i7 is more than enough, then no sense in going through the expense and hassle of windows server sw and the additional complexity of a raid server.
I want it to be fast, any thoughts?
