New MicroServer is on it's way


Recommended Posts

Good news!

by the way, there is old link from 3 months ago, and it says it will be AMD Naples platform

Looking like it'll still only have 32Gb RAM max, not a huge issue given we've been used to 16Gb before now.


The Naples thing is more interesting, I'm guessing from the pictures we've seen, briefly, that the chassis is pretty much the same, so dimensions are still good, Naples could mean a max of 32 cores, however, given the 32Gb RAM limitation we probably won't get full access to Socket SP3 due to thermal and power restrictions, there's not much out there as far as Naples info at the minute so it's hard to pin anything down other than the socket type and the fact its DDR4..

if it is Naples, so it should take DDR4 ECC Registered RAM ,so even with 2 slots, there should be 64GB RAM. This would be very cool. that is my guess. 

not long to wait :) only until Monday June 5 at 6:00pm :)

Yeah thats what I was thinking, given you can get 32Gb sticks..

Probably the lower end chipsets will have less lanes and have a few other features missing to make them low cost options, add to that the thermal limitations I cant see us getting 32 core CPU's, really does depend on what AMD release as to Naples info as to what we can guestimate we'll get on the GenX...

hm, better than nothing :) But it seems it will not be as powerfull as my Gen8 with E3 1230 V2.


From my point of view:



2 PCIe slots 

lower power consumption


only 2 or 4 core AMD Opteron™ X3000 Series ( X3216 and X3421 ) http://www.amd.com/en/opteron

ILO( ?)

Direct Path I/O ?

So back to CPU's stuck on the board, that'll be a killer for a lot of people as you won't be able to buy the cheapest model and then upgrade the CPU as your requirements change.

Looking like a big fat disappointment tbh, yeah theres an extra slot inside for cards but other than that its pretty weak...

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 and 2016 and ClearOS.

It doesn't look good now : no vmware ESXi, no FreeBSD ( FreeNAS) and etc. No infrastructure management (iLO). So you can't put it on remote site either for a backup.

I thought i would wait for a Gen 10 , but now i'll take probably 3rd Gen8, as the price after cash back is only ~130eur for a base model.

      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
