Well, maybe not:
The above screenshot is from a new HP ML350 G6 with a pair of Xeon E5520 2.26GHz CPUs installed. The new Xeon 5500 series CPUs support HyperThreading (HT).
The server configuration is rounded out with 8GB of ECC RAM and a 292GB RAID 10 array (4x 146GB 15K SAS2 6Gps drives) plus a hot spare.
While the new box is pretty snappy in its all-round performance though it still takes a while for the shutdown sequence to process.
At some point we hope to figure out if we can script a service shutdown sequence to speed things up.
But, for now, this particular box will do quite well for SBS 2008 and a client of this size running Web facing Line of Business applications on the Premium based second server.
