(Severely altered from original post)
I'm starting to look at startup expenses for a game I hope to have finished soon. I have one server online, that isn't particularly powerful right now. But as the game begins to expand, I know I'll need a couple real servers soon. So my questions relate to what physical hardware to get.
Database, Windows 2008 R2 Data Center, SQL 2012 Enterprise.
What System specs should I be looking at.
I'm planning on High Speed SSD Drives, Raid 10 (striped+Mirrored) as the focal point of its performance.
Atleast 2T final space.
Ram, should be fast, but not spending a lot here.
Processor, atleast 4 cores, 2.8Ghz or better.
Any thoughts, on areas that might see bottle necks? or specific recommendations?
