This question already has an answer here:
I'm about to setup a server hosting MySQL, Apache/PHP, File Uploads, and probably CCTV Storage.
Planned Personal Server Specifications:
- ASUS H97M-E
- INTEL i7-4790
- 2 x 4GB 1600MHz RAM
- KINGSTON V300 120GB SSD
- 2 x 3TB SEAGATE 7200RPM HDD
This will be my first time setting up a server, and I haven't decided a good Operating System for this. I'll also be setting up RAID 1 for backup.
Well, as projected, the server will host a simple EHR System, DTR System, Inventory System, Accounting System, Billing System and Cashiering System in one Web Program, with only 13 Users.
I am kinda worried about the traffic since the System will serve at least 100 clients per hour.
- Are the specs listed too overkill for its task?
- Is RAID 1 good for the setup? If no, what are your suggested RAID setups and how can we expand its storage later?
- What's the best Operating System for this?
Your suggestions and answers are highly appreciated.
