Exchange Server 2013 Hardware Requirements

Exchange Server 2013 Hardware Requirements

Are you sabotaging your Exchange Server s performance? You might be if you haven t implemented the right storage for your setup. Calculate megacycle requirements Exchange processors are expressed in terms of megacycles of work, so results may be convoluted. One megacycle is approximately a single 1 megahertz (MHz) processor working for one second. But today s processors run at 2, MHz to 3, MHz or more. Advanced processor instruction sets and features make handling Exchange workloads …

SQL Server Hardware

SQL Server Hardware

Going the DIY route. Don’t build your own SQL Server computer from off-the-shelf parts, unless it’s just meant to be a nonproduction development machine. Servers in general, and SQL Server computers specifically, need tightly matched parts: processors, chipsets, memory, controller cards and the like. You need components that will hold up to high heat, for example, and that have been designed to work together. That isn’t saying it’s impossible to build your own server - but it’s …

To some degree, all artists are digital artists these days. It’s not so much whether or not you actually create the art on the computer — eventually, it needs to get there. While this series is entitled “How I Work”, I am going to be a bit less specific here because the specifics aren’t as important. That said, my current rig is a 2014 MacBook Pro 15”. I just upgraded from my trusty 2008 Mac Pro tower. The MacBook Pro ships with 16GB of RAM which is plenty for my needs (and most …

Good Hardware

Good Hardware

What is “Hardware for Good?” In the past, the output and scalability of game-changing hardware innovations has been restricted by the high level of capital and resources required to develop physical goods. With the recent rise of developments such as 3D printing, computer aided design (CAD) software, and makerspaces, the cost of prototyping and manufacturing hardware products at low volume has plummeted, allowing at-home innovators to develop solutions faster, cheaper, and more …

Minecraft Server Hardware

Minecraft Server Hardware

When my three sons, ages 13, 11, and 9 decided to do a summer business together I thought it could be almost anything. After all, they’ve visited three dozen tech startups with me in our RV and they’ve been surrounded by technology entrepreneurs their entire lives. What business would it be? I just never expected a $99 Minecraft server. It’s brilliant, really. Minecraft is hugely popular but the Minecraft hardware market is almost nonexistent. It’s not that nobody thought to do …

Asterisk Server Hardware

Asterisk Server Hardware

In our training classes, we’re frequently asked to recommend hardware specs for an Asterisk server in a given setting. We welcome the “mini consulting” opportunities we get by interacting with students in live training classes, but this particular question continually challenges us. Unfortunately, there’s no “magic formula” we can use or recommend to answer the question easily. But the fact that there is no simple answer doesn’t mean there’s no answer at all. Keep reading for …

Server Rack Mounting Hardware

Server Rack Mounting Hardware

What mounting hardware do I need? It depends on the mounting rails of the rack enclosure or relay rack you will be ordering. Most 4-Post server racks, cabinets, LAN enclosures either use Cage Nuts and Screws for square hole type Universal Mounting Rails or 1032 tapped screws for round hole style EIA Standard Mounting Rails. Please be aware that almost all 2-post open relay racks use 1032 Tapped Screws (round hole mounting rails). 10-32 Tapped Cage Nuts and Screws - American Version …
