HI i have organisation with about 20 people who access server all the time heavily, they downloaduplfiles upload files, word, excel using windows shared folders to let several people work with same file in real time. And most of the files are ~500kb like 100 000+ files so far. total size 200GB.
The thing is it works really slow what they have now is HP MediaSmart Server - EX490 (2 GB RAM - 2.2 GHz - 1 TB HDD). I was thinking maybee the hard drive is not fast enough so i ordered solid state drive 250gb.
But eventually we going to upgrade server pc, what hardware you think we should use?
