Is Core2Duo E8400 An Upgrade Over Dual Opteron 285

Apr 20, 2009

I've had a dual Opteron 285 (dual core 2.6ghz) server with Layered Tech for the last couple of years, and I have a nice offer for a Core2Duo e8400 machine.

Currently my sites generates an average of one thousand simultaneous connections -- will the Core2Duo 8400 be more responsive than the two Opterons 285?

Dual Opteron 252 Or Core2duo E6400

May 3, 2007

Which one do you prefer?

- dual opteron 252 / 2GB RAM DDR / 15K rpm SCSI disk

- core2duo E6400 / 2GB RAM DDR2 / raid-1 sata (raid-edition) disks

It will be used for a big vBulletin forum. Price is around $200 different, core2duo a bit more expensive.

MySQL Server: Dual XEON Or Dual Opteron 2212 Dual Core Processor

Apr 2, 2007

If you have experience with large mysql databases please share your thoughts about a new MySQL server. If all other parameters are the same, what is better for a 6-10 GB MySQL db, dedicated server?

Dual XEON or Dual Opteron 2212 Dual Core Processor?

Also, any advice on suggested RAM, partitioning, OS, etc. are welcome. Current MySQL version used is 4.1.21.

1X Opteron Dual Core 2.4GHZ OR 2X Opteron Dual Core 2.0GHZ

Nov 7, 2007

I am going to buy a new server and I am unsure of which route to take.

Basically the cost is identical for a Dell server with:

1 AMD Operton Dual Core 2.4Ghz


2 AMD Operton Dual Core 2.0Ghz

What is the felling? Does the 4 cores out weight the extra 400 mhz per processor, but only having 2 cores?

The server will be running:

Windows 2003 Standard x32
Plesk 8.2
IIS 6.0 [ Application Pools Setup ]
Microsft SQL Express 2005 [ONLY CAN USE 1 CPU/CORE]

Can my applications even handle/utilize four cores?

Dual Opteron / Dual Xeon Dedicated Pricing

May 26, 2008

if these were decent pricing for the following dedicated servers:

2x XEON 5345 (8x 2.33ghz)
THIS CONFIG - $350 / mo

2x OPTERON 285 (4x 2.66ghz)
THIS CONFIG - $250 / mo

1x Core 2 Quad (4x 2.40ghz)
2GB DDR2 1066 RAM
THIS CONFIG - $200 / mo

They are all listed as 10mbit unmetered and they show the following for their providers:

Qwest, MCI/Verizon, Savvis and BTN

Does it seem about right? I'm new to hosting and just wanted to make sure that it is decent pricing.

Dual Opteron 270's Vs Others

Jun 13, 2008

Just recently while browsing Newegg and Ebay, I realized I could build a great server consisting of Dual Opteron 270's to 280's with Dual HDD's, Great Asus 1U Barebones Setup , 4GB of Ram for about $650 if I went with used CPU's

Now I don't know about you, but that sounds like quite the bang for the buck. Also considering I have an aggregate bandwidth commitment, and only pay $50 per server I add to my rack, it really isn't a huge downside to say build three of these rather then one Harpertown setup.

Well at least this is my opinion. I was curious to see what others opinions are. I figure with the up and coming cloud technology, and the high prices of new technology, this would be a good investment, but do you think it is worth it to build outdated hardware? Would I be better off just building higher spec servers? How do these servers stack up to some of the newer technology? Are they still considered poewrful?

Anyways just thought I would get some opinions before I went and bought a bunch of outdated hardware

Which Hardware Is Better: Dual Opteron 265 Or X2 5000+

Apr 4, 2009

I'm considering two hardware options for a server.

2 x AMD Opteron 265 (1.8 GHz clock speed x 4)
2 GB ram, 2 x 160 GB RAID 1, Windows 2008

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ (2.6 GHz clock speed x 2)
2 GB ram, 2 x 160 GB RAID 1, Windows 2008

Which hardware should be better to run a Mail server, IIS, MySQL and a few other http based services?

The X2 5000+ is around $8 more than the Dual Opteron 265 per month.

Best Option? Dual Xeon 2.4 / Xeon 3075 / Core2Duo E6750 / Quad Core X3210

May 9, 2008

I'm thinking in changing my actual dedicated server, but I'm not sure if I will win with the change.

I use it for web hosting, but I am going to need a lot of Mysql use.

I also want to work with Flash Media Server or Red5, but I have the project stopped.

All are almost in the same price. What do you recommend me?
I have never touched Linux and my Server is Windows 2003, do you recommend me to change to Linux?

Intel Xeon 3075
2x 2.66 GHz L2: 4 MB, FSB: 1333 MHz

To Upgrade Server, Question About Dual-core Servers And Best Config For Mysql

Jun 2, 2008

I'm running a message board and it looks like I've outgrown the low end xeon 3040 1.86GHz dual core server, and the bulk of the CPU load is going to mysqld. I'm debating between offloading the DB to a dedicated server vs upgrading the existing server and hosting the web server and db on the same machine.

Any thoughts on the better approach? fwiw, the load from apache seems next to nothing right now, but I am also planning on adding an SMTP server for user registrations and general support email.

I'm also not super familiar with dual-core and dual processor machines. Does shifting mysql to a dual core or dual proc machine help (vs a single core/single proc machine)? since there is just one mysql daemon, does having a second core or proc. buy me anything?

The price is almost same, I would like to choose better proc, not the cheaper one. The rest is same: 2 GB RAM, 250 GB SATAII HD.

2 X Core2Duo Vs. 1 X Quad Core Xeon

Oct 5, 2008

I have a Quad Core Xeon right now that I had set up with RAID 1. I'm getting horrible Disk I/O rates for this drive, 1.57MB/sec sequential write speeds. I'm having slowdowns that seem to be database related and more specifically I/O related. I run both my webserver (IIS/ASP) and my database (SQL SERVER 2000) on this Quad Core Xeon box with 4GB RAM. The disk I/O is killing me. I see that I have plenty of CPU cycles and plenty of free memory. At this point I'd sacrifice RAID 1 for better performance.

Should I got with the Quad Core Xeon with 4GB RAM for this webserver/database server config or go with 2 Core2Duo servers with 2GB RAM each?
