Hello, I am planning to develop a web-based application here in my office but I don't know which server should be bought. I don't want to use the cloud-based services. Please advise which server should I use, please specify what kind of server and its specifications as well. Database tool is SQL Server 2012 and it should be installed to that server. Thanks in advance.
I've read your questions here at ASK and what makes most sense (to me) is that you get yourself a virtual machine to start your development. Do you have vmware or hyper-v in your shop? If yes do this to get started. *Disclamer* From now on I am just making assumptions based on nothing to get you closer to actually starting developing something instead of focusing on the actual hardware. Maybe not always the best approach, but better that than not being productive. So now you order a virtual server with say 12-24GB RAM, 2-4 cores and a couple of extra disks for data/log/tempdb (add a backup disk if you do not have a third party backend system for sql database backups). Install SQL Server and get started.
