Hello, my company will in the near future launch an advertising campaign for our website that hopefully will increase our traffic 6-10 times from what we have now. For the time beeing our servers are doing just fine but with an increase like this we will have to do some upgrades. We will be using pro's to do the proper TSQL-optimizations and database tuning, but the need for further hardware is unavoidable I belive. What we have now is a stand-alone dual AMD 2400+ 2Ghz processors, 1GB ram and RAID1. At present the server is running on average at about 20% processor capacity. What I'm wondering about is which options I have, and what are best practices when upgrading like this. I would assume that adding more processors and RAM would do the trick but I would like to know more about it befor a decision is made. Maybe you have some links where I can read more about it...? -- Frettmaestro "Real programmers don't document, if it was hard to write it should be hard to understand"
