New MicroServer is on it's way

The device on the top was most likely the hybrid cloud thing they're working on, can't remember what it was called now, I posted about it a while ago but the cost was $1000+ iirc so not the same target as the Microserver...

HP do make a pretty box but I don't like the new HPE green oblong decal thing...

Talking 4 days ago with my rep they said there's a good chance they are scrapping it; now i see this image ... 

 

I don't know what to think, really

I dont see why they would though, hell, even Bosch use HP kit for their DIP/DIVAR series, a new Microserver would be an ideal replacement for the DIP3k's...

I think it's a real let down they limit the MS to 16gb but that said I can't rightly afford to ram a server with memory (pun!) but for those who want a little server chugging away some VM's economically it'd be perfect.

In that form factor something has to give, the chipset will take 32gb but the fact the Gen8 only has 2 slots is what kills it, but for the size, where would they put the extra 2 slots :/

Well you sell it to her as a consolidation thing where some stuff goes and is replaced by the new box.

You get it in the house and migrate whatever you need too to it while she is out, then bury it under crap and then "tidy up" exposing it and deny all knowledge..

 

Or get shot of the wife lol

      Hi! I am planning to buy a Microserver Gen10 Plus E-2224 for a small business, and want to add as much disk space as possible. I already have the older Gen10 with 4x4TB HDDs in RAID10 (effective capacity 8TB) and a 2TB SSD in the 5th slot (which is missing on the new G10 plus). The max stated capacity on the HPE site seems to be limited with their own enterprise HDDs, so I'd like to see if I can go for bigger disks. The server would be running a sort of an application which collects lots of data from devices, and the data tends to grow over time (1-2TB per year), and I'd prefer not to worry about the capacity for the next several years.
       
      My primary concern is the max capacity (max single drive capacity + max total RAID capacity with the Smart Array S100i) I can reliably install. If possible, some actual setup which has been shown to work with 32GB RAM and its limited 180W power supply? I was also planning on upgrading it to 32GB. If I am buying a 16GB RAM server, does this means it has both slots occupied with 8GB modules and I need a 2x32GB kit? For the os SSD, I won't have the PCIe slot available because we need to insert a certain GPS PCIe card that the server uses for time synchronization. So, if I want an SSD, this means I should use something like 1xSSD + 3xHDD in RAID5, instead of RAID10?  
      I've been planning to install 16TB Seagate Exos X16 drives, with rated max operating power at 10W (6.3W for random reads/writes). Does this seam feasible?
       
      Thanks a lot for your tips!

      Good day all
       
      i bought a gen 10 x3216 MicroServer and I have been trying to install windows server 2016 on it with a usb and I get it to boot into the usb with the iso on it but I can not get past the one install step where u supposed to select the drive.
       
      instead it says to download storage drivers and browse to select driver. I have downloaded every single storage driver from the hpe site or is sure does feel like it.
       
      if I try to select the driver I have to do so manually by unticking show only compatible drivers because if I leave it ticked there is nothing compatible. Iam stumped on what the correct driver is.
       
      ok so what Iam trying to do isssssss I want to install the os onto the usb that I have attached inside the box the one that is directly coming off the board. Is that a different driver ? 
       
      In bios/boot up options I can see all usb connected.
       
      can anyone please help me with this
