  1. "15TB... more that your total household..." Datahorder... Hold my Ingest Drive...
  2. Yes, as i guess it's a "DELL/EMC" OEM System -> then it's a handel to carry / pull the server back into the rack from behind. (I as DC Tech like this )
  3. I've a shadow since they started. The streaming quality is ok, but I've found several downsides for me: - my Hardware have no hardware decode for it - min. Intel Core i 3000 Series needed - to less ram & cpu for workloads without GPU support - single monitor support - mouse support on iOS - no IPv6 Support I've also get the ghost, yes it's ok, but a base i3 NUC is more versitale - I just need a min. 3 Monitors at 1440p. I think it's a grade service for 95% of gamers (with the right internet uplink), but I'm to much of a heavy user.(I just have 3 GPUs in m
  4. Their devices are verry cool. 1280x800 is fine, its 16:10 that I like and I've the same resolutuion in my 12" Thinkpad x201. I've seen their devices with a lot of customer datacenter techs guys and I ask them why: - small & light - real PC - no touch - "high" resolution screen - for the size - real storage - do real work - all IO they really need like ethernet, full sized USB & USB-C - Linux/BSD etc. support - no strange T2 chip, locked down bios etc. - some even run VM's on it (native Linux and their company Windows in a VM) - som
  5. I'm running my handy x201 with 8gb - thats ok. On my work laptop where AV, Webex etc. blode is installed & starts automaticly - because IT says... 8gb is at or beyond the limit. On my "desktop" Thinkpad W520 16GB is fine, mostly unless I do something heavy like having Firefox, Opera, Outlook, large Visio, MS Project open at the same time. Than I'm at 14-full RAM use - normally ~10-12gb. In a comparaison between my w520 (16GB - 4x DDR3), a NUC8 i3 with 32gb (2x DDR4) and my Testsystem Asus P9D-WS, E3-1231v3, 32GB (4x DDR3 ECC) the w520 feels "slower" but thats bostly the fault of
  6. TD:DR Yes your Serverroom is really small to have a Rack, Switch Box and a UPS in there. Cabeling Think about zero u PDU's with C13/14 or even C19/20 outlets for your servers. Some also can be switched and/or monitored. Also have 2, A from Grid & B from the UPS, as it's not your scale to have two UPS Systems. Get an ATS Switch for single PSU devices, so they could benefit from both sides. Also you could set the UPS to 220-230V to get better efficiancy out of your server PSU's. If you only use the PDU Outlets, you could not plug a 120v device in by accident, because the
  7. @RejZoR Yes, it's the naming is a bit strange. Same as SK hynix, samsung or hitachi/toshiba (in the Enterprise HDD market).
  8. Jake types in his user/pw on a external system to give linus access to his share - please do not, the other person could catch your credentials. Create a seperate share & user for the person, who want to backup, also in the share config you can create quotas so your mate don't fill your nas full with his crap. I upload by "external" Backup to work, where I have racked my own server (verry old system). But at some friends, I've a Rasip with a usb hdd that openes a reverse SSH tunnel to me (it also could be a cheap vm) and mapps the ssh port there. Hyper Backup is able to
  9. Wow, may I replace my x201 / T410 / W520 for a E495 with this CPU. "Battery is rated for 8h" - did you have test results what to expect in reality - office, remote desktop, surfing youtube (all the non gaming tasks)?
  10. The "kids" sitting in a meeting and want wo show something - and fail, because the company refuses guest access and have no cellular coverage in the room. That already takes place and I'm sitting there with my x201 dualboot XP & Win7 and run everything offline. Also the IT department would say no, because thy can't manage it via MS Active Directory. Wellcome to good offline legacy IT world.
  11. Sounds like AMD is going to replace threadripper (from a workstation home user and datacenter view). So here my thoughts about it: 1. the 16 core 2950x (900$) and the epyc one (single 7302P - 825$ & dual 7282 650$ / 7302 978$) - sounds like kind of "no server premium" to me 2. why get a cpu with 60 PCIe lanes, when I can have 128 lanes for mostly the same price 3. kind of double the RAM bandwith in epyc - virtual systems will love this 4. no way for Intel Xeon W - the 16 core is more than twice the price 5. running a SAP Hana system with one 2U system and not
  12. I would use it as a Storage or VM Box, but as storage Box I would use the SAS port together with an expander backplane of a JBOD and put a NIC inside the PCI slot / use a 8x/8x riser for NIC & HBA Card.
  13. @GabenJr yes this was also my thought and yes, for a server / workstation system with lot's of cards, yes. But for some storage and networking tasks like 200G/2x100G like ConnectX-5 (or newer) cloud take a boost of PCIe gen.4 by going from x16 to x8 or x4 to have space for x4 GPU's in a compute note. Rysen 9 - 16x PCIe gen.4 Threadripper 2990WX - 64x PCIe gen.3 Epyc - 128x PCIe Gen.3 I had a Dell R7425 with 1x 7401 with 1x GPU + Fiberchanel + 100G eth + PCIe NVMe SSDs lend from them for Hannover Messe. It was awesom to see all cards performing at full speed without la
  14. I've watched it, to check if I should buy 3.gen Rysen or 2.gen Threadripper. But the issue was, that you benchmark the new one's with R20 and the "old" ones with R15. I found a side "cpu monkey" where someone already benchmarked the old ones with R20. Your Result: Ryzen 7 2700X - 235/4029 Ryzen 7 3700X - 502/4875 Rysen 9 3900X - 516/7253 Their result: Ryzen 5 3600 - 478/3509 Threadripper 1920X - 406/5326 Threadripper 1950X - 411/6731 Threadripper 2920X - 439/5843 Threadripper 2950X - 449/7003 Threadripper 2990WX - 398/11463
  15. From an IT/Sysadmin view, did anyone try Citrix or MS Remote Desktop with iPadOS and a mouse? If yes, I could start handout iPad's instead of notebooks that have way more problems with drivers etc. and my user hate it, because we have spend to much time with fixing and save about 40% of our first & second level support staff worktime with just go to reinstall the device.
