Upgrading from Windows Server 2003 to Server 2008
Currently using Windows Server 2003 SP2, FM Server Advanced 10. Connecting to 4-5 large SQL databases from the server, and using Filemaker to show the data in a more user friendly format.
Has anyone had any experience with upgrading from Windows Server 2003 to Server 2008? I am really just asking if it is worth doing for any speed or stability improvements.
Or would I be better to move the server to a Mac XServe? Do you know of any sites that have done speed comparisons? If not, I may end up doing my own if the upgrade seems worthwhile and let you know the results.
We use mainly clients to connect to Filemaker, although I have written a PHP interface. This is annoyingly slow but usable.
Thanks for any advice.
