Hi guys,

Looking some recommendations for a small business server plus firewall with VPN. Have around 3 desktops and two laptops connected to server. Laptops are occasionally used off site and need connectivity to network (VPN mapped network drives and RDP for network apps).

Had been looking at HP Proliant Microserver and also the Sonicwall TZ300 but open to suggestions. Budget is around £1,000-1,500GBP ($1,250-2,000 USD). In terms of storage, 500GB SSD should suffice but should i be looking at RAID configs or multiple drives, hot swaps etc. Have a basic understanding of these but no practical experience.

Also interested in opinions on AMD processors? Recently moved to one on desktop PC and find it great. Are server chips as good?

Thanks
