Our server solutions are based on server platforms from such reputable manufacturers as SuperMicro and DELL.
We’re also employing APC PDU for remote power management and Aten IPKVM or embedded IPMI-cards for remote server.
For SATA-systems we recommend WD RE3 drives (500GB or 1TB, 7200 rpm). If over 1TB of storage required, you can use 1.5TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 or 2TB WD RE4-GP. But take into account that this drives have a much lower performance comparing to WD RE3.
If your project requires high performance, you should use the WD VelociRaptor (150GB or 300GBor 300GB, 10000 rpm). We generally don’t use SAS drives because of their low capacity and high price, but we can install them if your project requires it.
For SAS systems we recommend that you use Seagate Savvio 10K.3 (146GB or 300GB, 10000 rpm).
We strongly recommend that you use disk mirroring (RAID1) for reliability. In most cases, we recommend that you use SW RAID. We’ve been working with gmirror for over 5 years we can assure you that it is as reliable as any hardware solutions up to $500. If you require a hardware solutions, we can recommend 3Ware 95xx or 96xx depending on the selected server.
