Network & Server Setup.

By nerqebe ·
Hi all,

I am looking to setup an all-in-one solution server. Pretty much my friends company purchased a Dell Pe840 and would like the server to do the following;
- File server
- Database server(SQL)
- Email (EXCHANGE)
- DHCP Server

They also want remote management, so VPN, and some sort of backup/security.

What would be your approch to this.

This is what i was thinking.
Get a Cisco 1811 router and do site to site vpn, and behind that try to get another machine with 'Untangle' for security and what not. For backup I was thinking to get Symantec BackupExec for windows and have it go onto and external drive that they can take home.

Any suggestions? I was thinking to charge 75$/hr or between $1500 and $2000. What do you think?

I know this is not a good idea but they get what they ask for.

It really depends on the specs of the Dell server and how demanding they will be with it. There is a lot to take into question when putting this much on a single server. As for the backup we have a remote solution that would be cheaper and way more disaster proof. We charge $14.95 per mo. and that includes 5GB of compressed data. You can let me know if you have any questions. You can also see our temp site for more information. The final site will be ready in a couple of months. Best of luck and talk to you soon.
