You need 16GB RAM for a file server?

No, 'course not, but the server could be used to run apps that add convenience to the office, but are not essential.

 

For example, there's a foreign language dictionary, whose name I can't recall ATM (except that it's a weird name), that works really well when run from a server, but it's not essential -- the people can translate as they did before the app. They wouldn't want to do it for an extended period (weeks), but they would be fine for a few days.

 

In the end though, I agree, there's probably not a lot of apps that would make it necessary to have 16GB on a MicroServer. I guess something like SBS would be the most obvious candidate.

SBS, especially when you can't install it without 16 gigs.

Hi guys. So I installed 16GB of RAM (Kingston KVR1333D3E9SK2/16G) and can confirm it's

working like a treat with ESXi. Thanks for the advice.
