Got drives in my 1950 now. It's my 2nd hyper-v host.

15TB total storage, the SAN is in RAID 10
>>
>>52535008

have you calculated how much it costs you to run that each month?
>>
>>52535021
Yeah, it's like 100 extra. Half that stack is used for homelab, so it's not on 24/7.

The r900 sucks the most power, and I don't use it very often.

r900 is 4x xeon 2.5ghz and 128gb of ram
>>
>>52535021
oh, and I removed the r200 on the top and 3 of the cisco servers, because they were unnecessary.

After I sell my other servers I got from Dell outlet this one will be free:

Precision R7190

Processor: Intel Xeon E5-2603 v3 Processor (1.6GHz,15M Cache,6.40GT/s QPI,No Turbo,No HT,6C/6T (85W) Max Mem 1600MHz)

16 gb ddr4 ECC ram

256 gb SSD

Quadro K620

I know the CPU is literally as basic as it gets for the R7910 and I may upgrade it later but for now, what are some good ideas for this? I may just sell it entirely or use one of the dual CPU (same cpu) configs I have instead.

here's a picture I took for /guts/ the last time I had to open the case to work on it. It's just an old Q6700 that seeds some torrents, makes my backups, and sometimes runs a game server for my friends. Not pictured: ordinary consumer gigabit switch, ITX machine running pfSense.

I want to build a home server for Email server, Web server, possibly a game server if I ever play one which requires a game server, backups, and seedbox. Is this possible to make without boosting the power bill up an insane amount?
>>
>>52535983
that kind of stuff will run on any potato, except the game server (what gaymen), so power requirement depends on the hardware
>>
>>52535983
none of those things except (possibly) the game server requires a whole lot of CPU grunt to do, unless you want to, say, serve 1,000 simultaneous users on your site, with TLS. I doubt you are though.

you could probably put it on a celeron or an i3 or something and it'd spend most of its time sitting there at a dozy 800 MHz or so, and probably use something under ten bucks a month in power.
>>
I currently have an old ricer case (One of those with the ridiculous sized fans on the side) running 12Tb on a FlexRAID setup. Works well enough for the times I fire it up. I would prefer a low power NUC connected to a USB3 rack or some such though. Not sure if I could make much savings either way to be honest.

External 4x 4TB SATA presented as RAID 5

JBOD is handled by Storage Spaces, and redundancy is set at the virtual disk level.

Don't listen to him. Just install WAMP/LAMP and shove your website html in the "www" folder. Set your router to do port forwarding through 192.168.1.1 to your internal IP, get a domain and set it to connect to your external IP (see: http://myexternalip.com/). Set your drives in RAID if you need to get more drives for space (ideally raid 0 if you don't care if one of them fails in the future). Literally that easy.

some ISPs close ports to stop you from running web or (especially) email servers, both because malware likes to send spam and because of Judaism. A lot leave at least some open though. It's almost always technically against the ToS to run a server on a residential connection, but generally they can't be bothered with finding you and telling you to knock it off unless they get reports of spam.

Ah, good it has the Dual 930W power supplies. I mean theoretically, you could use that box for an over the top pfSense router/firewall/web cache.

The last time I played around with a 2800 it had full blown Microsoft Exchange server on it.

Personally I like the 2800, it's a good system to keep around, even if it is aging. Runs quieter than the 2900 with similar specs.

Don't. You'll be stuck to 32 bit VM's.

Actually, to clarify, if you want to learn VMWare, it should still give you something to work with and learn. So for a teaching tool, that should be fine. Boot off the ESXi CD, and install to a 4GB flash drive.

I mean to be quite honest, I've never come across any enterprise hardware (NAS, DAS, SAN, etc) that supported powering down individual disks after they've been spun up. Most of those arrays have raid, and enterprise disks.

For what you're asking for, theoretically couldn't you just mod a 5.25" drive enclosure and throw a switch on the front of it connected to the 5V rail?

Please define "in my drive bay" as well, not really sure what you mean.
>>

I'll be here anon... <3

5.25 is the drive bay in a normal pc case and icy box offer power on/off buttons for their enclosures but its out of stock in my 3rd world country
>>
>>52549356
>>52549381

Hyper-V will be able to run 64-Bit VM's, if you don't mind having windows server installed as the host OS...
>>
>>52549464

You could also look into a hotswap solution for a 5.25" bay, that way you could just take the drive out, therefore turning it off.

>>52549483
Not on a Nocona based Xeon it will not. I don't think the service will start.

Just grab a Debian netinst or the latest Ubuntu Server LTS and start playing around.

Most production stuff I bump into generally has some variety of Ubuntu Server on it.

Are there storage server racks that are very short?

Like pic related but without the room for motherboard etc. All I basically want is a compactish 12-16x3.5 drive bays with SAS connection.
>>
>>52551886
I was actually thinking about Ubuntu as that's what I had been playing with also Mint but Ubuntu had better support for my hardware etc. I've got an old shit system I could run it on to get use to it outside of a vm
>>
>>52551998
You could buy 3 by 5x3.5 bays and just run the SAS connector around the PCB if that makes sense as the bays will need power sort of like daisy chaing which is another option
>>
>>52552265
If they don't allow me to power my drives off individually, there is no point then.
>>
>>52552265
Don't they need atx power supplies though?

>>52552297
We're not asking for the same thing here senpai
>>
>>52552443
If you buy an actual bay like a iStar, Cineraid, StarTech, Vantec they should have their own power and you can just get a long SAS cable or splitter
>>52552297
Well if they are in raid or jbod a switch can do that but it won't be that safe
>>
>>52552665
It's a bit too ghetto for my data I think.

i got like 7 hard drives but one got "2 uncorrectable sector counts".

You could get a SAN setup like a PowerVault or something. Does pretty much exactly what you want, but you would use iSCSI.

I picked one up with 15 1TB for like $200, but never bothered to get the thing working. Just ripped it for the drives and scrapped the vault.

Couldn't be bothered to go down and take a picture of it. HP DL580 G5 with 16 150GB 10k SAS drives in two groups of RAID 6.

I have another 580 with slightly less RAM, and a DL380 G5 with 32GB of RAM. Struggling to find a good use for them with the shitty internet I have (15/1). Not enough space to use them as backup servers effectively.

Im not opposed to SANs, just adds a bit of complexity. I'm more worried about noise. Most of these don't let you swap fans.

pretty good, I even managed to fit a Hyper 212X in it although the fan might mess with the SATA cables coming out of your HDDs

cable management might be a pain though, and it's not too cheap either, but otherwise it's great
>>
>>52561416
I'd use SAS if I were to fill it with that many drives. Drives the price up a bit more though obviously.

I was once planning on using one of those asrock c2550 motherboards and see just how many drives I can fit into the thing.

>>
>>52561468
I only actually have two drives right now, but I'm planning to add more soon to replace my current NAS.

My mobo has 6 SATA ports (from the C226 chipset), just enough for the 6 HDD slots in my case, so is there anything I'd gain from using SAS instead?
>>
>>52561567
Is that not the node 804?

SAS Allows 4 SATA cables to run into one SAS connector. I imagine it makes cable management easier but it's quite costly just for easier management. It pays off however when you use lots and lots of drives.
>>
>>52561312
Yeah but not on amazon or "regular" websites

What does a DAS JBOD enclosure require to enable daisy chaining? Just a SAS expander with 2x external ports (1 in/1 out) plus the internal ones for the drives?

If you have to ask you clearly don't need one.

You don't need one, if you have to ask for a use-case.

>>52561293
I'm about to go with the same route except it has loads of storage. I'm thinking of going with an SSD for the boot drive instead of the USB flash drive, but I'd be sacrificing one of the SATA ports. Running Debian would be cool, I'd like to try ZFS on Linux.

You didn't know this? Also if you're importing then you'll have to pay taxes anyway. You might get away with it but there's always a chance and when you're talking 4+ drives it adds up.

I've just gotten a basic server that I want to run a few VMs on.

I'm currently using VirtualBox on a desktop, and I want to migrate these over. Worst case, I can re-set them up, as the data isn't important on them (or is already backed up).

What VM host will be simple to configure, easy to maintain, and quick to set up?

>>52543253
the top card is a four-port SATA card (two of them aren't used atm). It's some Syba thing that was on special at Newegg. It has no RAID functions, I do that in software.
the middle card is a USB 3.0 card, since that old board doesn't support it. It has a Molex cord running to it since USB 3 can supply more power than an x1 slot can.
the bottom card is a GT 720. The duties of this machine also include playing Chinese cartoons and displaying a web browser while I'm gaming or something on my main machine, so it has monitors hooked up to it

I'd tend to steer more towards EXT4 if not BTRFS. What advantage does ZFS have?

I don't have particularly crazy requirements for storage.
>>
>>52543190
The only real issue with that is if you're doing it over WAN. AFP isn't encrypted, so unless you're encrpyting your TM backups, all your shit is sent over the clear.

Other than that AC WiFi proves more than capable to back up gigabits of data fast. Even over WAN, with a decent internet speed backups aren't that bad.

I used to do it before I shut the server down because fuck backups.

They're pretty expensive for what they do. You can always just add more HDDs to your desktop, unless you have some need for distributed consumption or more computation.

Considering where I'm moving where the nearest DC is 2 hours away if even a sign of civilization, it wouldn't necessarily be a bad investment no?
>>
>>52566172
Yes
>>
>>52566172
Well, it would depend on the market. If there's a market there, then you may have a small SMALL chance at getting a small business going. However, there's this magical thing called the internet that makes it easy to have services be run all over the country cheaply.

Location is a small factor in choosing a datacenter. It's nice to have one close to you, but it's not a huge deal if it's not, so long as they have good internet.

Before you make a huge investment, start small. Get a small server going and see if you can rent out a few VM's. Colocation is a whole other ball game that requires professional installations and serious security. VPS's don't require as much if you can guarantee uptime.
>>
>>52566172
Do you honestly think you will be able to compete with the prices of a DC where you can remotely spin up a machine for pennies?
Do you think that the people that want to be near their infrastructure are going to pay you to put it in your basement as opposed to putting it in an actual secure facility that cost millions to build?
Do you honestly believe you will be able to afford the actual infrastructure needed to have a functioning facility, all while trying to compete with DC costs?
you're wasting your time.
