Re: Advice on hardware server to use for small a dedicated data center
Your English is excellent. I think Debian is a very good choice for a
small enterprise server. With a very limited set of servers as you
mention here, I would not expect many issues, and stability is a
hallmark of Debian. Personally, I would go with a quality HBA from
Areca or LSI in JBOD mode and then create and manage the array with
mdadm. I have been burned more than once with hardware RAID solutions.

First of all, please don't ask me why I simply don't want to use aws or gcp.
Then, I want to build a small data center for my company for hosting a
web app and a mail server. It's the first time I'm going to buy some
hardware for this. I tried looking for it on the web in order to compare
them but it seems that hardware vendors never want to talk about Debian
on their websites.
Seriously, I prefer using my money for donating to the Debian foundation
than having to pay for Ubuntu or Red Hat Enterprise because I love
Debian and ...
So, I want to know if It's a good idea to try using Debian in an
enterprise context, with hardwares like Dell EMC PowerEdge or Lenovo
ThinkCenter which seems to never mention that they support Debian. What
kind of issues can I encounter with such hardwares except simple cases
like having to install missing drivers with some already available
Can you give me some alternative hardwares in case this idea may take me
to much time to solve ?
Note: I will need some RAID solution hard or soft.
Sorry if my English is bad, it's not my mother language
