#1 Server Configuration for Java App's
Dell's Intel Dual Harpertown E5405 with 4 hard drives and 16GB RAM.
Java applications require alot of RAM and quickly suck up server's resources which is why most hosts don't want to get into J2EE hosting. We realized that if you're gonna do Java hosting (and do it well) you gotta invest in strong servers that can handle Java without hick-ups. So our servers hardware and configuration was designed specifically with Java in mind. Intel has also confirmed in a study last year that this series processors are the top of the line when it comes to handling Java application.
The top-level RAID (hardware) protection with mirrored sets in a striped set (minimum 4 hard drives) which provides fault tolerance and improved performance. In case of one of the hard drives crashing RAID 10 will be invaluable.
