Hardware Question



  • I am getting 300Mbs/300Mbs fibre will my hp server i currently use have the horse power needed . Hp Proliant DL-360 G7, Xeon X5660 6-Core 2.8GHz, 12GB of ddr3 and currently using one ssd drive .The server with my 120Mbs internet has no problems .Should i continue to use the ssd or go for a couple 146GB 10,000Rpm drives over the ssd ?
    Just a few questions .
    Thanks for any info .



  • Continue with ssd only as far as I am concerned given the read/write speeds as opposed to conventional hard drives.

    It will be fine and definitely keep the SSD. Spinning drives offer pretty no advantages in a firewall at this point.
