A nice article reference from Intel, refer here. Referees to cloud as well. Choose correctly what you need.

Do determine right server for your company.

There is no use getting a server that has redundant services but still add to the costs.

Do get servers that can be upgraded.

A server with limited memory and storage may not be able to keep up with your business growth. The basic memory and storage options might not be sufficient. Consider at least 8GB of RAM and 1 terabyte of hard disk space.

Do check the server has at least one Gigabit Ethernet port.

This allows high speed transferring of files and increases productivity for your employees. USB and Firewire ports may not be enough as their transfer speed is too low and will affect the productivity of your company.

Do verify that the server comes with documentation.

Documentation allows you to make a claim when your server breaks down and is supported by a warranty.

Do check the support options for the server from the manufacturer.

Different manufacturer has different support options such as maintenance plans and software upgrades.

Do always look into the warranty.

Get an enhanced warranty that guarantees response and repair time to avoid disruption.

Do get server management tools that can be used on any computer.

Server management tools should be cross compatible across different operating systems to take into account future PC replacements.

Do check the power usage of the servers.

Get the right power supply to avoid damaging server hardware and consider the Intel® Xeon® E3 processor to help save on your electricity bills.

Do check what built-in security packages are available.

Ensure that your server is protected. Built-in security1 helps you save on getting add on security packages.
