    Hello,

    Myself and a group of fellow programmers have developed an online piece of software that will be served over the web (Web Application). Due to it's intended audience and backing we expect the server to be hammer a bit (1/2 a million or better visits a month. If Not More).

    The application is developed in ColdFusion 9 and we love the affordability of the mini server. We could technically run our web and mail server.

    Is there anyone here that use their mini server as a full web and mail server, and how does it handle the stress?

    Thanks

    If you have programmed the software then you should know best how much resources it requires. This is a bit of an odd question. :confused:

    Sorry I guess I didn't phrase my question right,

    I know it will run on a Mac server, I guess what I'm asking is does anyone have a busy site running on a mini server? And how well does it hold up?

    Unless you don't care about downtime, you'll be running a busy website off servers in a data center.

    Of course,

    We will be colocating the server to a dc.
