One of the most common questions that our customers have is “How to choose and buy a server?”
You can immediately say that there is no such server that would be ideally suited for all possible tasks. Therefore, before buying a server, you should decide which tasks a server in your enterprise should perform.
It is important to remember that a poor choice of server hardware can lead to unnecessary material costs, as well as an unforeseen threat to the integrity and accessibility of services and information.
Parameters that affect server performance:
- Type, process performance
- Disk performance
- Volume, type, frequency of RAM
The priority task of the server in each organization is the uninterrupted provision of services to users. Of course, there is no perfect technique and sooner or later the components may fail. Unfortunately, it is impossible to avoid this completely, but it is quite possible to avoid the fatal consequences and correct the situation in the shortest possible time and at low cost.
To ensure uninterrupted operation, we recommend using a server where it is possible to install a backup power supply, it is desirable that the server supports hot-swapping drives. All of the above will allow the replacement of failed components without stopping the system.
The technical specialists of our company, having extensive experience working with various enterprises, will be able to help you and approach the choice of a server more professionally, namely:
- Define the tasks that the server will solve
- They will evaluate the server’s usage conditions (number of employees, server installation location and intended applications)
- Determine what characteristics the server should have
- Compare the prices of new equipment and used
- Choose your ideal server
