After some searching around, I figured I'd hit up SSC for hardware opinions.
The business wants a new physical server that is going to hold 2 64-bit enterprise DB instances. 1 encrypted with TDE, 1 not.
We are expecting read/write to be 70/30 with medium volume. DBs are expected to grow at a gb or 2 a month.
The business also wants to use this server as the web server as well.
Memory and disks shouldn't be a problem.
We are trying to keep costs down with enterprise licensing and only using 1 processor.
I'm a bit worried about the serving up pages and data on the CPU.
