Here comes a new configuration with all remarks taken in account:

FYI, we had:
The bad points of the server we had were:
- "small" and old CPU as it was a "green" and old server
- big IO trouble as HDD are in SATA only
The good points were:
- 16 GB of RAM
- 2x2TB of HDD
- HW raid

I made a NEW configuration with a Dell PowerEdge R320 and all your remarks:
- CPU: Intel Xeon E5-2407 2.20GHz, 10M, 6.4GT/s, No Turbo, 4C, 80W
Here is a link to compare the actual CPU of rabbit and the new one:
- RAM: 32GB DDR3 1333MHz (16GB on the previous proposal)
- HDD controller: PERC H710 RAID Controller, 512MB NV Cache, (HW RAID)
- HDD: 2 x 1TB Near-Line SAS 6Gbps, 3"5 7.2k (in RAID 1)
- iDRAC7 Express (not on the previous proposal)
- Dual Hot Plug Power Supplies 350W (not on the previous proposal)
Cost: ~2800 € without taxes*

* I asked a reduction to Dell. Stay tuned!
So, WDYT about this NEW proposal?
