30-40 users, VPN, VOIP, GbE.
I have $500 to spend on hardware for 30 LAN users / 25 phones / 5-10 VPN users. We have a 30 mbps / 10 mbps plan.
I'm brand new to building server hardware, so if there are any helpful resources please feel free to forward me to them. I am looking to switch off our horrible vendors and learn a thing or two. After using sonicwall and cyberroam, I cannot seem to find a SSL VPN solution that works for my company.
Can something reliable be built for this kind of money?
This will do it:
Add the SSD.
supermicro 4 core or 8 core atom
16gb ecc ddr3
ssd or sata dom
pick a case and psu
or order a supermicro server off newegg with those specs and add ram and a drive
a more expensive option, but it will work
