Re: [K12OSN] Would you purchase this server for $150?


we are operating a LAN with a similar server (DL 380 G3 2x2800) and we have 10 clients running OpenOffice, e-mail, desktop publishing, one PHP developer and one CAD system. Performance is excellent, provided that Firefox runs locally on clients. CPU workload never goes beyond 15~20%. We saw much difference from the previous Personal Computer we used as a server, although it ran on an Intel CoreDuo 5200 2.5 GHz. Our opinion is that a server, born to be a server, appears to be much more suited for that role than a fat PC. Please, note that these server are very bulky and noisy and can't be kept in the same room where people work.

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
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.
