I plan to build server with XEON processor and does it better for me to get ECC ram or non-ECC ram - i read many places and they said that these days ram are stable and no point to get ECC Ram.
Please give me your opinion
Is the server used for a business and need to be on all the time? Is it essential for you business? Meaning it the computer gives a wrong data, due to a memory error, and causes loss of thousands of dollars, then if yes, I would get an ECC memory.
It really depends on the application.
if it is a database server, I would use ECC.
mail,web, file server in most cases can get away with using non-ECC
This is for hosting business assuming which involved in everything
does ECC and NON-ECC make any differences on the performance?
