Hi cisTEM group,
I am in the process of configuring and buying a workstation to run cisTEM. The spec I have is:
2 x Xeon processors (E5-2650V4 - 12 cores)
256GB ECC DDR4 RAM
480GB SSD for boot
2x 1.92TB Enterprise SATA SSD(RAID 0)
5x 8TB Enterprise HDD(software RAID)
Dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet (SFP+)
The cost of this is approx. $15k. If I change the processors to 2 X Xeon (E5-2699V4 - 22 cores) that are recommended in the cisTEM documentation, the price increases by ~$9,000 to almost $25k.
My question is what processor specs have people used, and what has worked well for people.
Thanks so much for the advice!
