  • Hello,

    I am just wondering if anyone has any suggestions i need to make a successful home server, I heard people have separate servers like a domain controller, a utility server for printers and an app server. Should i put a file server on the apps or utilities. If you have any suggestions please let me know!:)

  • Hi There,

    Well you could do that however, you will need to take into consideration for the list of applications which you will be running. And how many people will be accessing the servers ?

    Furthermore if you are referring to a file server then you have to ensure the disk capacity is sufficient and high I/ops is require for high read & write speed to achieve.

    You have multiple services running on a server but if you are thinking of running a database and applications then i suggest you to split them up into different servers.

    Else virtualize it :)

  • for home you can put everything on the same server. Its only for big companies that they have to balance the load of the roles because a single server just couldn't handle it.
