Rocking one of these for £170 new
>Xeon E3 1240v2
>16gb ECC ram
>4x4TB WD Red
>3x3tb Toshibas over usb3 and eSATA
Convince me not to get another one for that price.
Idle between 40-45 and under full load it peaks to 85ish until the system fan takes over and lowers it to 70C.
Been converting for 12+ hours on all cores and it hasnt exceeded 70C except right before the system fan kicks in.
Man! It' the thing.
> Convince me not to get another one
There's no alternatives, but I found some cons.
1) BIOS, no UEFI. Come on, HP.
2) There's no easy way to use an AHCI SATA mode w/o RAID and boot from a 'optical drive' SSD. Some guy suggested to write /boot to a microSD and boot from it.
2.1) Therefore, no rEFInd, I think I'll go with GRUB. Anyway, still wainitng for SSD.
I have a question, tho. Do I need some special magic HP $199 switch to use a LAN Teaming?
>2) There's no easy way to use an AHCI SATA mode w/o RAID and boot from a 'optical drive' SSD. Some guy suggested to write /boot to a microSD and boot from it.
That's what I did. Not a great solution but its been working for 8 months. Makes reinstalling a bit more complicated though.
>I have a question, tho. Do I need some special magic HP $199 switch to use a LAN Teaming?
Not necessarily the HP one but you need a switch/router that also supports teaming.
Seen them as low as £165.
I'm not bothered about hotswappimg personally but that price is unbeatable considering its ECC, has iLO etc.
I want 4 of these fuckers but unfortunately one hard drive is almost as much as the whole server.
It's possible to hotswap. SATA AHCI standart supports it, pic related.
WS 2012 and Ubuntu Server
Steam + In-Home Streaming
Ubuntu Server runs:
AFP for remote OS X Time Machine backups
Cloud9 for remote development + compiling (super fucking useful)
All my personal sites/public file sharing
I probably also run a bunch of other stuff I've forgotten about `~`
APC's just came it but havent installed them yet, still waiting for the comcard for them.
No we talk about KVM, Xenserver, ESXI, proxmox when we talk about virtualizing also Linux / *BSD we talking about when we talk about OS.
Windows can do certain tasks good but that's really for bigger companies and you will get the most out of your hardware by running BSD/Linux because you can remove all the useless stuff and build what you really need.
> Intel Celeron G1610T
the xeon you mentioned in your first post is worth more than 170 eurobucks. if you bought the xeon version for 170 euro then somebody made a huge mistake.
here are USD listings, all $800+ which is about right.
Also the upgrades are more expensive than the part itself. The xeon cost me £95 and for simple file serving and backups the g1610t is fine. I even transcoded 2-3 plex streams.
What should I look into if I want an additional 8+ bays of storage? I don't really know what I'm doing when it comes to racks and whatnot.
Are there some cheapish legacy things I should look out for? I see Dell md1000 a lot which seem cheap.
HTPC + Server vs HTPC/Server?
I'd rather have just one machine but that means I've got to keep my power-hungry htpc on all the time (beefy for madVR upscaling). Can't decide if I should put a banana pi server in the closet and use the htpc as needed.
To set up my own rack for shit like firewalls, DMZ, Website hosting, FTP, and media servers
What kind of hardware would i need and how powerful would it have to be
Trying to into networks and servers
It depends on a lot of things. A server is just a computer. If you are only using it as a file server then you could get away with a SoC board like a Banana Pi. I mean, your basic run-of-the-mill router could handle those other tasks and it has a shitty 200-400Mhz CPU in it.
So i would be good with something like this then?
Runs my proxmox virtualization, wondering why the internet connections are so slow on it though when the damn thing has gigabit lan
i never understand how people need that amount of space, although i like it. what do you store on it and do you fill it up?
3 advanced 5 me. 7/10 server.
>40gb (old HDD for OS)
>3tb HDD for all my stuff
>dual xeon 5160
>quadro Fx 4800
>4gb ram (non ECC)
runs a regular homegroup server that allows my family to use the printer, store/read files. watch movies etc..
also hosts my TS server for when i game
>There's no alternatives, but I found some cons.
3) No hardware RAID on Linux.
SOON. Literally soon. IMHO it looks like they want to sell out their inventory of 8's first.
Stick the 3x3tb's in a server running Linux.
>SOON. Literally soon.
You fucking better m8
They haven't said a single fucking word. Not that I'd buy it because the price will most likely be hefty. If it's still just 4 bays I think I'd rather buy 2x gen8 instead.
I need a server for backups and torrenting. Would prefer generic hardware so that I can configure it myself, rather than an off the shelf device. Poorfag, so I need the cheapest option possible. Suggestions?
Virtualization confuses me.Aren't servers comprised of relatively poor performing components compared to desktops? I get the whole "designed to be powered on 24/7" thing, but how does virtualization not bog these things down to the point of being unusable?
I have critical services on separated VM's also mostly segmented from my private network (vlan,firewall)
All my VM's are tagged with H (high risk) M (medium risk) L (low risk)
For example high risk would be : webserver, tor node, any public services running, personal data on storage(encrypted)
Medium : Teamspeak, network services (DNS, NTP) ect.
Low: local applications, non personal data storage(firewalled for local private only), media center, and so on
I have a semi old Dell Desktop Intel (core 2 duo) machine in my possession and would like to make it into a personal server.
It is at my parents house but I will be moving out soon for college and live in dorms. I don't feel confortable torrenting on the dorm wifi and so my plan is to torrent on the home server, and then FTP into the server and transfer the video, or whatever.
I want to use Debian on the server and have a question:
I will SSH into the machine, but how would I configure Transmission to allow for a web UI, via SSH. I obviously know how to do it with clicking the UI. Is there some setting text file I have to edit?
>servers comprised of relatively poor performing components
For starters I wouldn't have to pay for a VPN. Secondly the download speeds on the VPN would be slower than if I weren't using it. Personally, I want to get experience with servers so it is a little side project, but I would actually be using it.
Been using a desktop as a server for a while now and was wondering, if I purchase something like what is linked in >>52439929 , can this be used as a stand-alone machine? Or do I need all kinds of specialized things like specific power supplies and such? I don't want to spend alot of money when I'm getting the job done with what I have.
it comes with the power supply
and yes, they are different from desktop psu's

Niggah git gud
Ok, so a rack would be required?
I think I'm going to have to go this route until I can gather up enough information about putting together the piece meal set ups. Thanks for your help.
Back up your knowledge with experience, I do appreciate the cyclic dependency between employment and experience.
Broaden your social network, join an interest group. i.e Linux User Groups, Geekups (see http://geekup.org/ if you're in the UK), Any other tech related events (see http://lanyrd.com/).
Have a look into freelancing. Start with simple jobs and work your way up into the areas you really want to focus on:
Search for local charities and offer to do some work for free. At the end you'll have more experience than you began with, a reference, potential employment.
Can someone recommend other things I can do with my first baby home server? It is a netbook atom dual core running debian minimal. Currently have transmission-daemon running along with openssh properly configured. What else should I consider putting on there? Any transmission mods or configs? Cool SSH tricks or utilities that I can use when SSHing into it to copy files to a connected flash drive? Thanks
Pretty shit line voltage tbqh senpai. I'm rocking 127
Who is this binary broker?
Who is that digital distributor?
Who is this online orator?
Who is that data disseminator?
Who is this file fortress?
Who is that CPU citadel?
Who is this packet propagator?
Have you pulled down the latest SUU for the Dell's? My R610's have also been acting strange recently, but was fixed by the SUU. Didn't care enough to look as to what actually was changed, so it could be coincidence.
So, this happened...
Which means that I may try to sell OP my existing server. (pic is existing server)
Shit man. That would be an amazing home server.
Although those archival hard drives are no good in any kind of RAID. Not sure how they will do in software RAID or however WS2012 does drive pooling. Just an FYI.
Planning to buy one of these for $200-$300 soon.
Using it for plex, hosting a couple web sites, fucking around with vms, etc.
>hp dl380 g6
Anyone want to talk me out of it?
Whats that storage box to the left of the server?
Also is windows storage spaces any good? I'm thinking of just setting up some sort of simple & upgradable ubuntu server with zfs or btrfs next time I refresh my hardware.
