Here is a little glimpse into one of our mid-range running Server Core setups:
The command: systeminfo | find "System Boot Time"
We are almost exactly three months short of two years for this particular Hyper-V server. It has been a workhorse with nary a problem.
- Intel Server System SR1695GPRX2AC
- Intel Xeon X3470
- 32GB Kingston ECC
- Intel RAID with 4x 300GB 15K SAS in RAID 10
To date we have _a lot_ of these particular Intel Server Systems in production both as standalone Hyper-V servers as well as Hyper-V Cluster nodes and we have been very happy with them.
They are rock solid and their performance is excellent.
Happy Thanksgiving to our US readers. :)
