A couple of things -- I read where the picture that is circulating of the G8 was posted on Twitter by an HP Employee HERE  (got this link from http://blog.themonsta.id.au/hp-takes-down-microserver-facebook-page/ )

 

I'm really surprised that the G8 microServer is coming out so closely on the heals of the G7 then I read a story about Meg Whitman Jolts HP as its Reluctant Savior and it starts to make more sense about the G8 coming out so quickly and the new styling -- this could be very interesting...............

It will be interesting to see how they deploy the B120i on this platform. Part of the spec is a optional memory module to enable RAID 5. I am not sure they will have room for that, but we will see. The good news is the B120i is part of the Smart Array family of controllers, so you should be able to take a RAID set off the B120i and pick it up on a different SA controller.

I was just looking at the specs of the ML310e G8. It is a C204 chipset as well;

They seem to be making the new MicroServer more of a Proliant product.

If the G8 MicroServer follows the same path, I have to believe the CPU choices will be Celeron G16xxT and Pentium G2xxxT.

Just a guess.



I wonder who's providing the RAID controller to HP.

They are LSI hardware based, but I believe HP writes the software and firmware.

I do like LSI hardware. Not sure I like the idea of HP writing the software, only because I prefer the people who do it all day, every day to do it, but I also haven't heard any horror stories about the HP firmware so......

Seriously?

Do you think Smart Array controllers are a hobby that HP employees work on in their spare time?

HP has put a lot of effort into the SA line so that it is compatible up stream into their MSA storage arrays.

Please review the first document in this search. I think it will ease your concerns;

I'll have to look at the article later, but for now let me say I wasn't trying to disparage HP employees. I was only referring to the idea that LSI employees live, breathe, eat, sleep, and dream RAID -- it's all they do. HP, being a much more diverse company, quite likely has more employee churn in & out of the RAID division. It's nothing against anyone; more of an extra plus for LSI.

      I have been running the WHS1 pack 3 for many years.  Unfortunately it is no longer working.  I got a Proliant microserver Gen10 hoping it will run it but was unable to install the software.  The software should run on most older PCs?

      Does anyone have the WHS1 running on the Gen10?  Also my WHS1 iso is Pack 1.  If I manage to install the Pack 1 can I find on the web the upgrade to pack 3?  Would I be forever stuck at Pack 1?  Any advice would be appreciated.

      Hey guys,
       
      Has anyone around here been successful in setting up Proxmox on a Gen8 using a HBA for storage?

      Hey guys, 
       
      Bit of a random question here, and I know it depends on many factors such as what they are doing etc, but how many VMs have you guys comfortably ran on Gen8 with an E3-1265v2 and 16GB RAM? When did you start to see a performance hit compared to what the Gen8 is generally capable of?

      Hi,
       
      I’m looking for the latest Proliant SPP for Gen. 8 servers. 
       
      I’ve got a MicroServer, a DL360e and a DL380e which I’d love to update.
       
      Has anyone got the latest SPP that wouldn’t mind sharing?
       
      Thank you!

      Hi 
      My HP Proliant Microserver Gen 8 won't install HP Tools when I have running HP Smart Update Manager. 
      even when I have trying to install via Intelligent Provising, Windows Server 2019.
       
      Se image below 🙂 That's I missing.. ;-(
