I am specing out a high end workstation for a client and need to find a appropriate case for this unit. AMD used to have a recomended list of chassis's for workstations and servers, but this list seems to have disapeared.
What I have is a small doctors office that will have 2 workstations and a single server. In that enviro it does not make sense to spend a lot on a server, so I figured we could go with a high end workstation setup with some built in redundancy such as dual PSU's, and a good solid raid array for storage.
HP Proliant server with a Carepaq. You get redundant fans, power supply. Do RAID 1 for OS and data with a hot spare drive. 10K SCSI drives with a single channel RAID controller. I would get a tape drive for backups. Veritas backup Exec for the tape software so you can schedule nightly full backups.
