Server Hardware Requirements

Hello everybody,
For my team, I am currently looking for a powerful server on which Confluence and Jira should run.

I've already read through the documentation, but am still not sure about the hard disk space.

The server has 4 cores and 16GB of memory. I have the choice between 60GB SSD memory or 480GB SAS memory.
Is there a difference between SSD and SAS memory? We would either set up the database on the same server or set it up externally at our web host. Which operating system should we take?

Our team consists of ten people and we plan to use Confluence and Jira for several years.

Thank you in advance,

Hey there

4 Cores and 16 GB RAM is good! Id go with 480 GB. 60 GB is really not much these days. And if your users put a lot of Attachments in to Confluence and Jira you better want to be safe.

SSD are solid state discs, these are a chip based storage media. Look them up on Wikipedia or somewhere else online for details. SSD are on average the fastest choice these days.

SAS on the other hand is not really a storage medium but the interface, a SSD could be using SAS as well. I guess the SAS one you mean is an HDD (Hard Disc)? Could that be?
