Server replacement

It’s been a while since my last post, but I’m still alive and kicking (happy new year btw :P). Another thing-to-do-before -you-die was building a decent server. At the time I found a 2nd hand 14U 19″ rack build by HP. Also picked up a 4U Chenbro 16-bay hot swap case and build a massive storage server. Love the setup, but over the years it only seemed to grow bigger and bigger. The rack itself is build like a tank (and weighs 61 kg without server!), but with a size of 72 x 100 x 60 cm I’ve been on the lookout for something smaller.

Until today! I’ve gotten an offer noone in their right mind would refuse (as in biggest discount ever received). Components won’t be here until early next week, but here’s what’s in the pipeline;

  • HP ProLiant MicroServer
  • 8GB DDR3 RAM with ECC
  • 10TB storage with RAID5

Still working out the details, but as it’s only 27 x 25 x 21 cm in size, weighs under 10 kg  and is much more silent, it should be a major improvement. Interesting times ahead :D
