I would like to use a VPS to host my ASP.NET MVC 3 + SQL Server 2008 Express project but I'm hesitating between Windows 2008 and Windows 2008 R2. This server will only have 1 Go of RAM.
I was thinking about choosing Windows 2008 32bit because a 32 bit OS requires less RAM than a 64bit OS but are there some important features of Windows 2008 R2 that I'm going to miss ?Maybe better support for AMS.NET MVC 3, easier deployment ... ?
If you are going to keep the RAM on the VPS under 4GB, I would go with 32bit. If there is a chance, at all, that you may have 4GB or more of RAM, go 64bit. The deployment process will be the same for either. There really isn't a feature difference between the two, other than enabling 64bit support
