OS Installation and Testing

Now we get into the fun part: loading the server and testing it. For our testing we will be loading CentOS 5.7 64-bit as our Linux test bed and Windows 2008 R2 SP1 Enterprise as our Windows test bed. Testing will additionally consist of 2 processors, the low wattage Xeon E3-1260L and the normal wattage processor Xeon E3-1230.

    Nice review of quite an exotic system. I’ve added the RSS feed to keep updated on the future comparisons, but the last entry was in Sept. Might want to update that.
