    Hello BHW members , I can't decide which server should i take for dedicated webserver.
    In first couple weeks I am planing to use 3-4 Magento multistores up to 200SKU/each store. + autoblog on this dedicated server, around 20-25 MySQL databases.
    Can anyone suggest me from my choice or give a good advice about dedicated servers providers.

    1. Intel i7 4x 2(HT)x 2.66+ GHz, 24Gb ram, 2x1TB, GigaEthernet , 15 TB Traffic
    or
    2. Intel Core i7 920 / 950 8GB DDR3
    or
    3. Intel Core i5-2400 4x3.1+ GHz 16GB DDR3, 15TB Traffic, Intel SSD 320 2x 120 GB
    or
    4. 2x Xeon L5320, 8GB ECC DDR2, 1x 500GB SATA3

    Kind regards,

    Whichever is the cheaper of them. You won't need a lot of power until you start getting viewers/customers.

    That seems ok. However 2TB drive is probably "green" drive? If/when you start reaching a bottleneck it will probably be the disk and due to MySQL usage. Something like 146GB 15k SAS would be better for heavy MySQL loads. But you can deal with it when the issue arises.

    Make sure you setup good backups AND TEST THEM BEFORE you need to use it!
