I'm looking to purchase a new server. My use cases are as follows:
1.) Primary OS will be Win '08 running SQL '08 as a development server. 2.) On my current server I also run WAMP for LAMP stack development. I'd like to run Ubuntu VM's instead on this new server as WAMP doesn't always give a fair reflection of our production environment for LAMP sites (Ubuntu 10.10).
3.) I also intend to run a number of file servers on this machine so need plenty of disk space.
Does anyone have any good server spec recommendations for this kind of use case?
