Suggestions for server apprasial - Page 2

post #11 of 16
How about this:

File/Print/App Server: Dell R510, 8GB RAM, 2x 500GB SATA RAID 1 (O.S.), 5x 1TB SATA RAID 5 (4TB usable), RedHat Enterprise Linux 6

Back Up Server: Dell R510, 4GB RAM, 2x 500GB SATA RAID 1 (O.S.), 5x 2TB SATA RAID 5 (8TB usable), RedHat Enterprise Linux 6, Zmanda Back Up software, FalconStor VTL.

I chose the R510 because storage-wise, it's nicely expandable (get the 12-drive chassis). You'll need good quality 1Gb switch between the main server and the backup server. It might also be an idea to consider VMware ESXi as a baremetal hypervisor, and run RHEL 6 on top of that.

As far as off-site backups are concerned, tape is a good choice, but you'll need to do some research into it; I'm not sure how much data a single tape can hold these days. Amazon S3 is also a good choice, but you'll need a fast network connection if you're going to back up terabytes over the Internet.

The HP ProLiant DL385 G7 is nice, but the R510 has the 12-drive chassis option, which I would advise, since I suspect your data bulk is going to be measured in 10s of terabytes.

As for the PERC, you can specify either the PERC 6/i (SAS, 3Gb) or the H700 (SAS2, 6Gb) when ordering the R510. However, if you think you're going to go to 12 or more drives, I'd get the PERC 6/e or H800 instead of the PERC 6/i or H700, and an internal SAS expander.

I'd get the hardware RAID cards, rather than the on-board stuff.
