We're all about options here at EZ Trade Live. We want to find the best server option for you, whatever it is you're looking to do, and we've got lots of possibilities. Let's look at some options in just the 900 series, just as an example.


Suppose you need a lot of CPU power. Maybe you're crunching numbers for the astrophysics department, and you need the maximum amount of computing power per rack that you can get. In that case, I'd suggest the PowerEdge 1950. It's a 1U unit with two CPUs that can be single, dual, or quad core depending on the model. It's got two hard drive bays that you could use up to a 2TB drive in each.


Are you concerned about hard drive stability and uptime, but still need that maximum CPU count? You can have a 1950 with up to four 2.5” drives, giving you greater redundancy.


Say you need a little more storage space, greater hard drive redundancy or both, in that case look at the 2950s. 2U unit, again with two CPUs, single dual or quad core. Now you can have up to six 3.5” drives or eight 2.5” drives.


Now let's move along the spectrum again. You need storage space, lots of it. Maybe you're scanning in an illuminated manuscript or have lots of uncompressed audio files for a recording studio. You might look at the PowerEdge 2900 with two CPU slots, again with single dual or quad core options (options everywhere!). This thing comes standard with eight drive bays, and there's an (optional, yep) expansion bay available that gives you two more hard drive slots, so that's up to ten 2TB hard drives. That's a lot of manuscripts!


I use the 900 generation as an example, but this goes forward and backward. For example, there's the 1850, 2850, 2800s you can use, and if you want to move forward in time, The R610 and R710 or T610 T710 are options you can explore, and there's lots more besides those. So just let us know what you're looking for and we'll find you a good match.
