Hi, I'd like to get the community's thoughts on the hardware level needed for this deployment. It is for a local govt office/ law enforcement.

Network install, Pro version

50 users, outlook integration, all users also have a blackberry, iphone or droid

Planning on Ubuntu install, not VM, a dedicated server, need email archiving

I'm considering a server with a decent quad code xeon w/ 12meg cache, 12 GB ram, 1TB x3 in raid 5, redundant nic and PSU.

Don't want any slowdowns, would rather oversize somewhat than undersize and ever have hardware be the bottleneck.


Thanks in advance!
