Yes indeed, i registered on WCG with the same nickname, in order to be easily identified
Perfect, I'll see if I can find you
Makes it easier then to get tagging people when they hit a milestone etc. Small thing but I like to mention people that pass them, seems only fair
Sounds fair enough ! ideally i would go as far as requesting 2 of them (whether they are 1U or 2U servers, the beefier the better of course) and hopefully the donation i have in mind would be perceived as acceptable from you (PM sent). I know the postage & packing won't be cheap but i'm prepared to hear anything
If I remember correctly, I believe all of the 2U servers have dual CPUs in them, some might be quad cores, but I think most are all hex.. Since I was wondering about power consumption on them as well, I've used the L5640's in most of them, these are 60w CPUs so even when there are 2 of them, 120w just on CPUs and as they are X58 based, it'll use a little more than normal anyways.. They aren't the most efficient but times have moved on a little bit since then
I don't mind if the backplanes are not fully connected, since the baseline is just installing a capable O.S to run WCG, so i'm perfectly fine with it.
Any of the servers will be fine with that then
Just depends if you prefer 2.5" models or 3.5" models
Hopefully she will get better very soon !
I hope so too, she is having a bit of a problem settling on her own at the moment, but that said, a cuddle for a few minutes and then a bit of time with her making sure she's not crying when she goes down and she's now again, out for the count
i'm already familiar with the R5** / R6** / T7** line of products so my questions will be adressed when you post the detailed specs, on the other hand what could say about the HP servers, in order to get to know them better ?
It's the first HP server from work and if I'm honest, I've not used it hardly at all lol Same era of hardware, X58 based and dual CPUs
I did make sure that each server had at least 24Gb of ram, whether it was with 12 x 2Gb sticks or 6 x 4Gb sticks
Obviously all servers will be without drives, I do have a few spares here which I'm more than willing to sell on (at a low price as again they have been well used.. I have professionally wiped the data from each and every drive so I have no issues handing some back out.
We can work out from there about costs
I'll check PM's in a sec..
