New Server for Preview SAP WAS ABAP and Java


I wish to purchase a new PC or server to specifically house my ABAP and Java preview installations rather than have them running on an old PC and laptop.

Anyone out there got some recommended configurations? Max spend will be £1500.

    Hi Ian,

    I have also been contemplating this recently following the problems I've had installing the ABAP WAS on my everyday PC. I really want to reformat the my PC now but can't face the hassle involved in re-installing everything!

    From what I understand the ABAP and Java WAS are not particularly processor hungry (unless performing complex tasks) and I think memory would be the key to getting decent performance. Your budget should easily allow you to buy one of the new Pentium Core 2 Duo processors. Put this together with a decent motherboard and a couple of SATA hard drives (perhaps in a RAID 0 array, or a RAID 1 array for more resilience) and then take a decision on the memory. Minimum required is 2Gb realistically - if you can afford 4Gb then you should go for it.

    Are you planning on leaving this PC/Server running 24/7 or will you just boot it as and when required?

    Let me know what you decide.
