Default Re: Forum speed: Discousions

Current server:

Dell 500SC
P3 1.13GHz
768RAM
Hard disk etc.

It is the conection speed that is the problem. The server should be fine, if not I have a HP Netserver if the dell can't handle it. Specs:

512 KBs connection speed (Will go to 1MB if we need it) Cost 400GBP/month
Quad Xeons
1GB ran
3*18 GB SCSI RAID 5 hotswapable hard disks
2 Power supplies!

the connection alone is goning to cost us 400GBP/month! (600 if we go for the Meg!)

Well! I can't believe it would cost 400 for a connection no faster than mine! Which I pay 27 for!

Why is it so much more expensive!

Umm, we couldn't use a residential line! Bandwidth? Conection?

Touchet! I suppose you couldn't - they may notice something!

Would a leased line be better?

We have looked into leased lines and would look at 2000GBP setup and 1000GBP bandwidth. That is assuming we already have a fiber network/connection.

Lol; we'd need a lot more movement on here for that piece of kit!
