this is Santosh from India.. I need some help regarding the server configuration.
I am trying to set up my lab of computational biology, I am in need to set up a file server and mail server for a small network domain of <30 nodes:confused:.
SO, can anybody help me by giving the hardware configuration for such server:neutral:..
I would be greatful if you give details about the most suitable OS for it:p
Pretty much any Linux OS will be able to fulfill your needs. The most popular server distributions are Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Debian. Red Hat Enterprise Linux requires a subscription fee and if you do not want to pay that, then take a look at CentOS which is a free RHEL rebuild.
