    QSFP28 100G to differents speeds like 40Gb

    I have the "opposite" problem: I have multiple 100GBE nics but can't/won't update to a 100GBE switch in the near future* and have to stick with my 40GBE switch :D The 100GBE nics are mellanox cx-4 vpi cards (2 are hpe branded) and they work fine with all qsfp+ and qsfp14 cable connected to an...

    280W TDP CPU in Supermicro 2U?

    It was the preapplied thermal grease from the SNK-P0064AP4 heatsink. Photo from another heatsink: I would use the "x method with dots" like amd shows in their videos: (Funny thing: the guy uses the threadripper(pro) wrench and taped the logos in that video:D)

    Server 2022 essentials included RDP CAL's?

    From experience windows server will work fine without cals/licenses. You (the customers) want to have the proper cals/licenses when you (they) get auditioned (by microsoft or other entities for certain iso certifications) :D

    12G spinners vs 6G spinners

    hdds? nope. maybe when seagate finally releases the hdds with multiple actuators (which can almost max out a 6GBit/s link) for everybody (see https://www.seagate.com/files/www-content/datasheets/pdfs/exos-2x14-DS2015-2-1912US-en_US.pdf) Edit: it makes sense to buy 12GBit/s hdds when they are the...

    12G spinners vs 6G spinners

    Rerun the test with a larger files (let's say 30+ GByte) and put the hdd in the same slot (and let it "cool off" after each benchmark run). I think the result's will be even closer... I'm not sure what you mean... 6 GBit/s is ~550MByte/s with encoding and sata+sas tunneling protocol. Nothing...

    20TB hard drive for $295

    I would check the seagate website for warranty and firmware downloads. if there is still warrant and firmware downloads available then yes, it's a great deal. (I think seagate exos are to hdds what intel dc ssds were for ssds)

    Samsung PB SSD at 128TB for 60PB All-flash Racks

    I was thinking put these ssds in a pcie chassis/jbof and let a dedicated cpu (close to the chassis/jbof) do this work. (reminds me of hardware raid :D)
