New Server

Big day today. Just taken delivery of a new server box, dual core with 8Gb and Raid-1. By the cringe, it was a heavy beastie.

I will be installing Windows 2008 and SQL Server 2008 on it, as I intend to do some more heavy duty BI (still using Excel to be the presentation layer of course). In due course, I will add Sharepoint, and do some Excel Services (but let’s walk first).

I am not really a hardware or OS guy, in the past I have always had team mates who did that sort of thing, so this will be a new experience. Sort of looking forward to out, but I am worried it will take up more time than I can afford at present.

Let’s see how it goes.
