Hi

Did anyone here use here an Intel Server? Last week I visit a Road show who the where shown.

I like the fact that the are "open" and I can put HDD, SSD in who are certified from the Broadcom and the are cheaper.

But how good the are?
Thanks

You can actually put your own HDDs, SSDs, RAM, CPU etc in to any vendor server. You don't have to buy their specific parts, if it's for a business purchase it's best to as everything is covered under that single warranty and also typically longer than the device manufacture offers but for home labs just find the cheapest base platform and upgrade as you need from cheapest parts you can find.

Then all you needed to add was processors, ram and storage.

Do you use "Brand one" like Kingston and so?

All HPE firmware is free and able to be downloaded from their website. The only thing that requires a login is the SPP ISO for bulk firmware update.

Not the ones I've seen, at least not if you're buying large 3.5" disks anyway.

I am not sure who is making the boards for intel anymore.  They did have their own plant, but I assume its now someone else assembling them now.

 

Could use any brand of parts, as long as it was compatible. (example: ECC memory)

 

They do have a "tested" hardware list for all of their server boards.

I need a server for my small project. I sayed before i will do what linus did.

Build a Server with an Graphic card + USB and run just a Virtual Win7 on it with an ESXi. 🤣

During the night when I sleep other Virtual System could use the CPU Power to run some cpu hungry process.
