Hello all,

Just to let you know in advance. I'm not your typical home network. My networks include servers, switches, and storage devices for the record. I'm thinking about buying an additional server to compliment the one I currently have (16 gigabytes of ram, but with a motherboard deficiency causing it to only see half that) and am looking as possible options. I like Dell, so am thinking of either the R320 or the R330 single-socket options (I don't think for what I'm doing (active directory, file server, secondary web server, TFS server for internal projects) requires dual. The R320 has around 192 gigabytes of memory maximum, whereas the R330 has only 64. Do any of you have anything to say about either unit in particular? Also of note, these servers would be connected to some resources a couple of towns over. Thanks for any input. I asked Dell for advice, and I didn't realize my potential once I bought my first unit, and I'm now needing a second one since I didn't realize how much of a project potential I had. in other words, never thought I'd be using virtualization until my friends came along and showed me what I was capable of ...

The r320 uses an older platform with E5 v2 processors. I would recommend the newer r330.

I think that's going to be what I end up going for ... plus I've heard that the R330's are a bit quieter as well; not that server noise bothers me any ... but if I'm working from home, I can't have a server revving above my head where callers might hear it. LOL
