This is my Linux webserver.
Here’s some quick specs:
Make & Model: HP Proliant DL 580 G2
Form Factor: 4U
Dimensions: 26.5 x 19 x 6.9 in. (LWH)
CPU’s: 4x Intel Xeon 2.8 Ghz processors
CPU architecture: i686
Ram: currently 4GB’s – Maximum 32GB
Hard Drive: 1x 36.4 GB SCSI Drive – 4 slots, hot swappable
6 PCI-X slots
PCI 2.2 Compliant
2x 800w power supplies
7x Hot Plug, redundant fans
OS: Fedora 15 (KDE of course)
I’m not the biggest fan of KDE 4 just as my own opinion, I thought 3.5 was purely magical. I experimented with Gnome on this machine already and KDE runs leaps and bounds over Gnome. I probably would have considered an Ubuntu setup, but since this is an i686 architecture, Fedora was the best and pretty much the only option.
I searched all over distrowatch and downloaded Ubuntu’s server edition from their site, but it wouldn’t work in this machine. It kept complaining about the CPU architecture so I went with fedora. I love a Debian based machine, but a Red Hat based system is just as good for me 😉
