What does it do? How much power does it consume?

This is my HP T610 PLUS running as a hypervisor.

My main server running as a hypervisor. It is my file server and manages the rest of the cluster.

I mainly use my servers as a compute cluster. I write simulation and "generative art" software for fun. Some of my stuff needs TONS of computing power, so I have 8 servers total. They're all the same, except BigXen has 64 GB of RAM and 2 TB of storage while the rest have 16 GB of RAM and 120 GB of storage. The rest of them only come online when I need additional computing power, so only BigXen has any sort of decent uptime.

I got this stuff for cheap since a local business was upgrading their system and didn't want it anymore.
>>
>>47784008

Oh, and a VM on BigXen is dedicated to a Minecraft FTB server my niece asked me to set up. That's not very resource intensive, though, since Minecraft servers are mainly RAM-heavy and I have tons of RAM.

Using an old Mac as a server, it has good power usage, is quiet and looks good but it would be nice to have PCI-E.

The server is internet facing with a domain and runs torrents, local network share, IRC server, mumble server (what a piece of shit server) and handles all local networking (DHCP, firewall, etc.).

Random-ass laptop (ASUS K53SV) that I have no real use for. It serves as a http, FTP, Samba, torrents, and a Windows VM for fucking around and playing Kancolle in. Does the job. Probably doesn't eat too much electricity because it's a laptop, even though it doesn't have some ULP CPU. Can't be bothered to measure how much it actually draws.

I really don't see a reason not use Ubongo on a server. It just works and is stable which is all I care about when it comes to a server.

>>47788517
Pretty much required if you set permissions for files with more than one user with windows.

Its honestly easier to just use NFS and a local dns cache.
>>
>>47788517
cached dns lookups m8. also it's good practice if you wanna be a big boy server admin someday and not a basement dwelling neet installing gnu+linux on a pentium 4 dell optiplex with an animu 2d grill wallpaper.
>>
>>47788604
My server is an old laptop from which I removed the monitor because it broke anyway. I wanted it headless anyway.

It's a Core 2 Duo, don't remember the number.
It's serving me Owncloud, OpenVPN, IMAP, SAMBA and it's also for torrenting.
>>
>>47789640
Forgot to say it consumes 33W while idling.
Seriously considering a Raspberry Pi or some other low-power PC to replace it.
>>
>>47781655
I've got a SuperMicro board running with a couple hard drives. I use Debian on it.

>What does it do?
Web, email, database, Minecraft. I plan to set up another server to do Kerberos and LDAP.

>How much power does it consume?
About 30 watts.
