Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: cheap Dell servers for next 4 days
Now - I was checking out the rack servers since I'll be needing a production grade server soon and I can get:
PowerEdge 2650 Xeon 2.4GHz. w/512k Cache. 2U Rack Memory - 256 MB DDR. 2X128 DIMMS (this is the minimum) Hard Drives - 3 36GB 10K RPM Ultra 320 SCSI Drives Primary Controller - PERC3-DI, Embedded RAID NIC - Intel Pro 100 + Dual Port On board SCSIThey take $400 of the price + $100 rebate. Grand total is $3,213. I want to have 1 Gb of memory so I need to check memory prices outside of Dell. They charge like $500 range for the 1 Gb of memory. I also need to check hard drive prices. Additional drives are a bit pricey @ $249/each. So taking the two out will knock $500 more off the price. Not too shabby no? Any recommendations? This server will be running an Oacs site - or two. TIA.
