I'm setting up my home office and would like some recommendations in
terms of hardware for the main 'server'.
I need a box that will be always on as it will handle:
- my offsite webserver backups
- our asterisk phone system
- a small inhouse mysql database.
I've got all this running on two old tanks - server grade machines, hot,
loud, heavy and indestructible. But I don't want to run those machines
in the basement of the house.
Can I get away with an older dell desktop for something like this? Or
should I be looking at a tower server?
