I'm building a new server for my dad's company. But I know very little about Xserves. They're migrating from a personal webserver with 64MB of RAM. Needless to say, it crashed and burned, and here I am cleaning up the mess. They stream and store a large amount of video. I thought the Xserve could serve as: the office server (1), backup drives (2), and webserver (3). This also needs to last a long, long time. They wait until the last minute to upgrade anything. Frankly I'm tired of their ****, and they need an Xserve that will whoop ass. Here is what I have lined up: Xserve G5 Dual 2.3GHz Part Number: Z0BH Fibre Channel PCI-X card - (lower slot) 2GB DDR400 ECC SDRAM - 2x1GB Mac OS X Server, Unlimited License 1500GB ADM (3x500GB 7,200rpm ADM) Dual 2.3GHz PowerPC G5 Accessory kit SuperDrive (CD-RW/DVD-R) Estimated Ship: 1-3 business days AppleCare Premium Service and Support for Xserve Part Number: M8830LL/C Estimated Ship: Within 24 hours Cart Subtotal: $7,599.00 This leaves room for cluster nodes or Xserve RAID... and RAID 5, yes? I thought SuperDrive would be useful if bad things happen... again. Also: does it need a monitor (and VGA card)? Please reply this time.
