Perhaps an exercise in 3 categories: Moderate Enterprise, say small data center with some DR capacity for compute: 2 x 4 TB relational database backends, DC, file and print server 10 GB with backup of any kind., 10 GB center switches, dual Gb external gateways.
SMB: 1 TB database server, 5 TB storage GB network and a backup strategy
Single business person: 2 TB file store, excellent compute, say minimum 4 core, and print server, backup.
I know just being in right place and right time some real bargains and good free stuff can be had if one has storage until hardware required. Bring on the war stories. What could Trev come up with ?
