Hardware Selection for running x86_64 GNU/Linux
Does anyone have an opinion on a good server for running linux on? I am looking for a server to run some scripts on and webhostings. If you have experience with running sql/http, php scripts on linux, I would like to know if you have any options on what servers to look at that are on the market today.
My applications use a lot of bandwidth and CPU. I currently run on 8 difference VPS servers just to keep my scripts running, so they use a lot of CPU for a VPS. THere is also a lot of I/O to disk to read/write from files and I need something that can handle a lot of IO?
