I'm going to setup a open Mapserver w/ Openlayers, Geojango, Postgis using Postgresql. And I need some suggestions from people that have been shopping for what I need longer than I have.
What would be the best configuration for such a db server and from where?
Im a big mac fan and was thinking of a Xserve w/ 42g ram and two quad cores (2.66). What does postgresql like best as far as server software/hardware? Can it fully utilize multi cores?
Im on somewhat of a tight budget so price is a big factor. But what would be the dream machine and its cheaper inequivalent?
sockets; i'd probably have 20 to 30 ppl at the lease almost 100 at most, maybe more. Serving up more than 100 layers with some common canned geoprocessing type stuff going on.
