Choosing SUN & COMPAQ Alpha Servers

by Eoin.Farrell In reply to Choosing SUN & COMPAQ Alp ...

Hi there,

I was looking into this myself a few months ago and found a very good site called www.spec.org who provide specint results for all servers. The ES40 came out much better in all the tests I found and I have also found them very good for any queries I have had. One thing that cooncerned me about the SUN server was the lack of ECC memory which over recent weeks ahs become quite a highlited issue with them. If this is mission critical I personally would avoid purchasing SUN until they correct this problem and also until the memory has been in use for a while just in case any other issues arise.

Hope this is of some assistance to you,

Eoin.
