Thread: Building a small web server (hardware)?

    Default Building a small web server (hardware)?

    The actual power consumption depends on the usage of (mainly) the CPU: the more busy the CPU is the more power it needs. Depending on the kind of the CPU (read: age) the CPU will be busy with serving data and the website.
    As operating system I can recommend a free Linux based system for NAS: FreeNAS.
    If the CPU is really old, it will use always quite a bit of power if the CPU does not support to "turn the GHz (or MHz) down" when not so busy.

    Anyhow, it will not make your electricity bill fly, but putting energy savin components inside will make sense: gree harddrives (turn slower when not needed), multi step CPU etc. Removing a big graphics would make sense as well: you can run the server "headless

    Server could be any workstation with right software, but performance depends on specs

    You are right, you can make a server at home very easy with right software
    A visitor from Mars could easily pick out the civilized nations. They have the best implements of war.

    It all depends on your needs, but home computer is not good for server work

    I think Server only for sharing the desktop applications to clients for work. It doesn't needs more power.
