I am building planning of using opensuse as the os for a file server i am thinking of getting.
these are my problems…
I have a budget of £ 1,500 pounds to spend on this project. this file server is to be networked to a 3 office workstations for sharing and storing files only.
what are the hardware spec required for me to get a fast file server running… please list out every parts i would need to build this file server as am not much techie on pc parts.
this server would have autentication, regular full and incremental back up plans,
below are some spec i have listed… am i missing out anything?
3.Processor (intel or AMD which is better and cheaper)
4.Ram.memory(am considering 8GB too small?)
5.RAID connectivity( i have no much idea abut them)
6.Hard- mirrored drive( solid state or which is better???)
7.Power supply unit(redundant)
8.power cords(which suld i go for to complement PSU)
9.PCI erthernet cards with 2 slot support
10. optical drives
11.network swtches( which to use ??? compatibility issues?)
