HP Microserver Gen7 in 2021 - N36L N40L N54L


Recommended Posts

I just bought a use HP Microserver Gen7 N40L that I'll use for testing using TrueNAS OS. 

I already have a HP Microserver Gen8 with FreeNAS to store my Photos and Videos.


What do you use our Gen7 Microserver in 2021?

Maybe I'll get new idea on what to use it for.

I have three N40L servers at home running a myriad of things:


Unit 1 with 8GB RAM and quad-gigabit NIC: Untangle NG Firewall

Unit 2 with 16GB RAM and quad-gigabit NIC: ESXi host running PCNS, Pi-Hole, and Windows Server 2019 DNS+DHCP

Unit 3 with 2GB RAM and 6TB storage: XPEnology NAS for secondary backup


Despite these servers getting a little long in the tooth, they're still great for running small workloads that aren't CPU-intensive. Using it as a NAS is great, just don't expect it to do much beyond that, like transcoding videos, etc.
