  1. 1. What server are you running at home?

Yeah, you shouldn't have mixed things up like that, unless you did it on purpose knowing that we'd all pull you up on it and then you could slide the "Journal" idea in and think we wouldn't notice ;)

you have to have a separate category for HP micro servers because so many of them have exsi/p222/b120 issues or have issues finding compatible memory 😉

Guilty!

 

Don't forget about the CPU compatibility, too.

So never mind the lame radio button quiz, this is an opportunity to strut our stuff via the written word...

 I have:

  • Dell T110 running server 2016 Standard serving only as a NAS at this time
  • Dell T20 running server 2016 Essentials, with VirtualBox running two CENTOS instances, one for QRadar CE and one for OpenNMS
  • Microserver G7 N54L with Win10 running GeniusVision software for my cameras
  • A HomeBrew Core-2 Quad based PC running PFSense with lots of Intel NICs (three subnets - work, IOT, and family)

Besides the backups to Essentials some 'extra' backups are done with Veeam agent for windows. Both Dells use your sponsor's Stablebit Scanner. On one of my clients I use Node.JS to do nightly scraping of my favorite auction site.

My setup seems boring by comparison to some of the guys here.

After loving the Gen7, but wanting more power, which, to be fair I had the N40L so wasn't exactly on the bleeding edge, I got the Gen8, spent a fair bit on upgrading that, hard drives, RAM, Controller card, CPU, Heatpipe cooler, iLO licence and pretty much everything else you could get for it, I was looking forward to the Gen9, that didn't come, then the Gen10, well, that was a massive disappointment after the Gen8, so I ended up building my own box.

 

Intel i5-3470

32Gb RAM

250Gb Samsung 850Pro OS (Windows 2019)

250Gb Samsung 850Pro VM Store

Seagate 4Tb (ST4000VN000)

WD 2Tb Red (WD20EFRX)

2x WD 6Tb (WD60EFRX)

All wrapped in a Fractal Node 804 case.

Not boring to me. Any build is always a great adventure/accomplishment.Looks like you lucked out on the WD Reds. what kind of VMs fit on that size SSD?

I clicked the HP Microserver button ...

... in practice I have:

HP MS GEN7 x 2

HP MS GEN8 x 2

... all storage servers only and running Windows 10 Pro.

 

Typically:

- small OS partition + 2TB data partition in bay 1

- 3 x 8TB data in the remaining bays

- 2x 8TB external drives via USB

 

Microservers have become expensive, compared to the originals at c£125, so I am intending to move to a home build with 16 disks per server and 10G networking (plus hopefully Thunderbolt).

Looking forward to the new INTEL and AMD CPU's!
