We're getting ready to pull the trigger on a new server and we're stumped on what the optimal processor configuration is for the absolute best performance.
For the purposes of this question let's assume we already have a really fast PCIe SSD RAID for disks and 16GB RAM. Let's also assume that pricing of the processor choices isn't a factor.
70 Hosted Files
30 GB of solution data
LAN access only (GigE / 802.11 N WiFi)
WPE in play, but not on this machine. It's a 2nd machine in the deployment.
Which would you pick?
Can you prove the benefits of the choice?
|CPU GHz||# of Cores||L3 Cache|
|3.5 GHz||6 Cores||12 MB|
|3.0 GHz||8 Cores||25 MB|
|2.7 GHz||12 Cores||30 MB|
Any and all responses welcome!
