I need suggestion on what kind of Operating System and hardware we should buy for our company intranet server.
we are in the planning of hosting many ASP and ASP.NET scripts that creates various data intensive reports. WE will be dealing with huge databases(SQL Server, ORACLE, Sybase)
Also i was wondering if i need to install the Visual Studio.Net on this server or can i go ahead and install it on my local machine and after creating webpages, upload them all to the server...which is the better way??
Also do i need to install the database client softwares on this server??
