N40L, WHS2011 > SE2012R2, Worth it?

Looks good, I would recommend a SSD for the OS. I like to keep the OS and data separate from each other.

As for your data drives I prefer RAID controllers like the HP P222, but that is an added expense. If you are comfortable with drive pooling, that is a cost effective way to go.

Hi,

 

I have also an N40L.... and I am also wondering what can I use AFTER WHS2011 ... But the Windows Server 2012 Essent. etc... are terrible expensive arent they ?

I mean as a home user - Ok I paid 50 € for the OS... But 400 for the 2012 ? Or is there any other option for Provate users to get this at a reasonable cost ?

 

Thx

and detail what benefits you think 2012/Essentails/R2 will give you.  NO benefits= no migration in my book for a production system.

satego, I think it's perhaps a little early to worry about what to move to. WHS2011 is supported for a fair while yet, so why not stick with it for now?

Hi ,

 

well thanks a lot for your answers ...

 

Indeed its not needed for me to Change - all I do with teh WHS is storing Musik, Pictures, TV recordings etc... and stream them in the House. (and backup of Clients)

I just was wondering what Home users can do once WHS 2011 will be stopped to be supported.....(As XP is now)

Also if really Server 2012 in the cheapest Version is 400€ or anyone knows a cheaper one/source.

 

Thx

There is only a few sources and they will all be about that price.  You only other option is to go MSDN or Technet.  I'd stay with WHS 2011 for the immediate future.

2012's a good system but given what you use 2011 for then theres no point in upgrading, especially when the cost comes into it...

And Technet's not an option any more....

 

Remember, tech moves fast. Who knows what might come onto the market between now and when WHS2011 expires. Also, since I never surf or do email from my server, and it's never exposed directly to the Internet, just how important are security updates for it anyway? I suspect my real reason for having to move away from WHS2011 will be that new tech just makes it obsolete.
