I hope everyone is doing well?
I have an opportunity to purchase an HP Proliant DL360 G3 for $150.
The specifications are:
2x2.8GHz Pentium 4 Hyperthreading Xeon processors
2GB ECC RAM
Battery-backed hardware RAID
2x76GB 10k SCSI HDDs
The full technical specs are here:
Our current setup is 15 clients but going to grow to 20 within a few
weeks. Our current server is running K12Linux (based on Fedora 10) on
a Pentium 4 (2.4 Ghz) with 3 GB RAM and 2x37 GB SCSI drives.
What do you think? Would it provide a serious performance boost? Our
server now is OK but you can feel at times it's slow with the 15
clients when they're all going.
