Hi I've looked at the comparison charts between editions of Windows Server 2008 R2 but I don't see a definitive answer to my question. We have licenses for Windows Server R2 Web as well as R2 Enterprise. Our asp.net MVC3 server will run on a dedicated server with the following specs:
Dual Quad Core Xeon e5620 2.4GHz (w H/T)
- 12 gb ram
- 3Ware 9650-4LPML raid card
- 4 - 500 GB SATA drives
The server will run:
- MS SQL SERVER 2008 Enterprise
- Red5 stream server
If this service takes off, I will move the database to it's own server as well as Red5 to it's own server.
My concern is that we won't use all of the features of Enterprise and it would be more bloated than Web edition (or Standard?)
What would you recommend?
