    New Server for My Company

    I don't know if you actually read the whole thread or just jumping to conclusions on your own but I'll try to dumb it down a lot and explain as clearly as possible. The data server will only be receiving data from the website and stores them and will only be accessed by employees locally. Any cheap computer from this era can handle this job. I am only looking for suggestions regarding a server build which is cost effective and power efficient. The whole team that is going to use it is 5-10 people too. Also, AGAIN, OEM services where I live are bad as hell and to buy one I'll have to pay an arm and a leg for an outdated model that doesn't even benefit me in the least.

    New Server for My Company

    So asking for suggestions means that I don't have expertise,,,, hmmmmm. I have the degrees that say otherwise and actual years of work experience in the field which is why I'm even bothering thinking about building my own for my company. I was asking specifically for suggestions for a server build and a workstation build because server grade hardware keeps changing from day to day and I don't want to do all the research work, hence, HELP. Also, having "expertise" in something does not mean I know everything about everything. Please, if you have something helpful say it otherwise please just let the rest of the experienced members contribute instead. yes I am planning on renting in a datacenter for the backup offsite server and I might even host the website offsite if it is more cost effective and just backup the data onsite to work on. So far, DDNS is the only other option to provide stable connection and I'm in contact with some providers already and we'll see how that goes if NIC does not work. yeah I'm putting the OS on a different array, no worries there but I believe I will benefit from RAID6 more than 10 for my case scenario. As for ESXI, I don't believe I will be needing that right now but like you just said it will be easier for growth later on and I'll thank you now instead of later so, thank you My thoughts exactly. And it especially these days, the hardware available is great to make a server that is good enough to handle all the tasks thrown at it at a reasonable-esh price and will do well for the next few years without the need for any upgrades.

    Cool idea, but Microsoft...

    Windows hello works only when windows has already booted up, you can't use it to boot up the PC. I have some other neat solutions for you though. 1- you can hook up a motion sensor to the power pins so when you sit it turns on. 2- you can also program a motion sensor as an input and hook it to the USB instead and triggering it will wake the PC from sleep. 3- you can use BIOS settings to turn on automatically using a timer. 4- you can change windows settings to wake up from sleep on a timer. These are all easy solutions and cost effective. I usually set up the wake up timer like 1 minute before my alarm "which is on my PC and hooked to a 7.1 sound system" so it will go off and wake me up lol

    I'm familiar with Windows Server and Unix but for my uses I believe I will be using Windows Server 2019. I thought about that too but the website takes data from the clients and saves them on the server. I will take this into consideration and maybe make a tiny server for the website that automatically sends data to a separate private data center. Also, a firewall is a must and I agree completely with your point of view, thanks. but why? in here I'm better off building a quantum super computer than buying an OEM server. They are waaaay too expensive and the support here is next to none and I'm really sick and tired of those OEM jerks in here. I'm planning on getting a decent router and still "window shopping" right now. As for split access routing, I never used that and will take a deeper look at it. Thanks

    Will do, thanks for the suggestion

    I have tried some of them in the past but never worked for me. I believe the ISPs here put some restrictions on those just to get more money *sigh* I will experiment with that anyway and see what I come up with. but if it doesn't work I'll be stuck with having to pay thousands just to get a decent connection.

    It seems I misspoke again, I'll just explain the situation more and hopefully I'll make my idea clearer I can get a 1mbps upload and download DIA connection with static IP for around 400$/month which is not ideal for traffic at all and I can get a 300mbps download and 80mbps upload normal dynamic IP connection for around 100$/month as regular work internet connection I am thinking of using NIC on the server to get the static IP and connect to the website and hoping it can use the regular connection's internet speed. Is this possible or am I shooting blanks?

    I agree, thank you for your help. I have one more pressing matter that needs to be addressed. To host a website, I will need a static IP which is really expensive to get where I am. This is a thing that I didn't try before so I'm already taking it with a bagful of salt but is it possible to make the website work as intended with 1 dedicated connection on static IP and also connected to a regular highs connection on NIC/ Teaming?

    Of course I have considered this which is why there would be both an onsite and an offsite backup servers. I didn't think I should mention this since it is a standard and common practice in this situation but thanks for bringing it up. 20TB is not really a lot these days. It will be able to provide enough for my current use at least until a future upgrade is necessary. They aren't even that expensive to be honest. I am considering a 12 bay server chassis "HDDs RAID 6" and only the boot system to be run on SSDs "not sure which RAID to put them on though" Thank you

    I did the same thing a few times too. There is a chance it may not get activated by simply logging in because the hardware changed. If that happens just call Microsoft support and they'll get you sorted and you don't have to deal with it again.

    that I understand and am prepared for so no worries there. sorry about the confusion, I'll try to make it as clear as I can. It is going to do these jobs: 1- host a website that: A- company website B- colects data for a service provided 2- NAS and data storage, not less than 20TB, it is going to be documents mostly but will also serve as 3d and CAD renders storage. 3- it will be accessed by employees only Also, I will be building the system from scratch, I know my way around servers and PCs I agree, and the budget is pretty much open but I hope to get something that can serve its purpose for at least a few years before I "feel" the need to upgrade. There isn't one now but If possible I would install a 10GB network. The company will start with 5-10 employees and hopefully grows larger soon. EDIT: sorry for the weird post, it was unintentional

    New Server for My Company

    Hi , I need to build a server for my company which is going to store data and host a website. I thought about making a workstation while that I would work on and add those functionality to it but it won't be practical at all since I need all my clients' sensitive information and will need to be accessed by others and at the same time the website has to be online 24/7 with no down time and if I'm using it there's a 100% chance it will be down for some amount of time TL;DR I need 2 things 1- a server build that is efficient and will hold a website and a good amount of data . 2- a workstation build to do heavy multitasking workload plus rendering "most likely gaming too :P" Any tips are welcome and appreciated. EDIT: I have one more pressing matter that needs to be addressed. To host a website, I will need a static IP which is really expensive to get where I am. This is a thing that I didn't try before so I'm already taking it with a bagful of salt but is it possible to make the website work as intended with 1 dedicated connection on static IP and also connected to a regular highs connection on NIC/ Teaming? Thanks

    Corsair link shows it is working and I can feel the vibrations when I touch it.
