Hello everybody, I am goint to buy a server for using a small project database hosting purpose. which will contain 1000000 student information and it will be using for 5 years. I am going to buy Six core E5-2630 2.3GHz with 16GB RAM and 600GB SAS HD. Now i cant decide whether the single or dual cpu will be best. Can I manage my task with Single processor? please ans me.
Thanks in advance

More aboutsingle dual core 2630
depend, most of the time, db are bottleneck on RAM/HDD speed and size.
So I should concentrate on RAM and HD. not processor? can tell me a little detail please.
Also you didn't mention what database application you plan on using most license per CPU
I only use MSSQL server 2008 R2 and vidual studio 2010.
I think you can get away with one CPU since your not running multiple instantes on that server.
oh though you may want to use the money you were going to spend on the extra CPU and dual slot BM to come with a back up solution for the database. Even if you back up the database base to disk you want to have some sort of off the machine backup.
