I am looking for your thoughts on ideal server specifications for a moderately sized habitat mapping project. My current server is about to reach its storage capacity, so I am researching buying a new one that I can dedicate to the project. The following is a list of my basic server requirements:
- 10-12 TB Storage Capacity
- RAID 5
- $5k limit
- Primarily used to support ArcGIS, Erdas, and ENVI applications
I would like to get your thoughts on system configurations that work well for you, given the previously stated constraints. Any advice on specific hardware and server software would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your input.
