This is a bit of a vague question, but I want to know what you - or filemaker recommends.

Currently I'm hosting a very critical database on Win server 2003. Time to upgrade and my boss wants me to investigate using a Mac server.

 

Mac servers (mac mini and mac pro) don't have dual redundant power supplies, hot swappable raid drives etc. so I am biassed toward a Win Server...

I also thought I read somewhere that filemaker recommends installing FMServer on a windows server also.

 

Please any thoughts? Thanks for your input.
