Dell PowerEdge C6100 8x Xeon Quad Core 32GB RAM Node Server
Thanks for great response. I won't lie i would prefer something "quieter" so if those are laud maybe you can point me in better direction.
I also would prefer 32 bays or more but i couldn't find those in reasonable price.
I would prefer not going much more than 600-700$ +hdds because after that price i rather buy external drives for my normal PC :)
I would like to get from that also opportunity to "play" with servers and learn something new.
@Brushek , I have the server rig I mentioned and two other rigs, mostly externals drives. The server is rock solid. The externals are good but need attention periodically, also not nearly as fast.
If I was going to add on to my current farm (which I'm not doing right now), I would only get another server.
Here is a recent block.
@Brushek find a server chassis with sufficient drive bays, and a SAS2 backplane, then add a modern CPU/motherboard and suitable SAS HBA(s)
thank you again for all your responses.
im not as good as you guys at this. this will be my first server and i would prefer to get it whole even at little more.
my idea was to get 24 or 36 bays but from prices i can see in europe it would cost me way over my budget to get those.
i did get a reply and both servers will support 4tb hdds.
could you help me with selecting one them
@Brushek If they're guaranteed to work with > 2TB drives, then either is suitable - I'd go with the cheaper option.
