If someone can help me with best suggested specs for following.
I want to run Asterisk as the main thing that will use CPU load.
I will then also run Database, large tables, but very quick basic queries.
e.g. Does ABC record exist in table XYZ.
Load Balance Server. This will be down track in a few months.
Do I really need a SSD drive or SATA will be fine?
Do I need Hardware RAID or software RAID is fine?
Is what I am suggesting below a good setup model (the server I have listed)?
I am looking at soyoustart.ie/offers.xml
Intel Xeon E3 1245v2 (4 c/ 8 t) 3.4 GHz+ 32 GB RAM
Will this server be best choice?
I would run Proxmox on this server with openVZ / VPS for 1 x Database Server, 1 x Web Server, and 1 x Load Balance Server.
I would then have additional servers such as Kimsufi PS-18 Core™2 Quad Q6600 / Xeon X3220 - 4GB RAM for the Asterisk servers. I may run up to 5+ of these down the track.
Please share your thoughts.
