Subject [greenstone-users] server specifications

Bula from Fiji.

I will be implementing Greenstone to build a digital collection called PADDLE – Pacific Archive of Digital Data for Learning & Education.

See http://www.usp.ac.fj/index.php/paddle/ for more information.


We are now ready to purchase a sever for PADDLE, I am wondering if people could give me some ideas about the “ideal” server specifications for running Greenstone/digital libraries.


Currently our digital collection contains about 130 docs, but we expect it to grow rapidly once copyright is resolved.  The PRIDE Project has funding for 5 years but PADDLE is expected to live on after the project funding so we want a server to last the distance – or one that can easily be upgraded as the collection grows.


Would appreciate any advice.
