some small discussion about it here,
I did some testing just on a single or few SSD‘s way back then but didn’t go past that, to me it looked really promising but then didn’t hear much about it...
in days gone by this is the case buy your shouldn’t be surprised that there is also heaps of very legitimate businesses on eBay doing huge volumes. The whole separation of distribution channels is nothing like it used to be.
I am amused and think it was good for people to learn the basics rather than somebody launching into discussion the finer details of it in a technical way leading to the discussions of CPU ready time in ESX etc.
just makes me hungry :)
Nothing wrong with a H240, but what’s it going into a HPE gen9 system then great, it’s gen10 I would go to once in the new HBA’s same age as gen10.
whitebox server I am not sure sure I would use it, probably better with vanilla LSI HBA
For home I am a huge fan of slim cables, just makes cabling so much easier. at work it’s all cat6a/cat7 which is horrible and that’s even using the quality stuff.
i tend to use POE rated cable for POE devices though but thy are higher power at 20+ watts. (Access points)
They are pretty poor performing drives, for sure aimed at cheap storage and they are SATA , i have some, just use them for regular storage like photos and files, replaced spinning disks good while back. For that they are good.
