    EXPIRED HGST 8TB SAS - $50

    I got 20 of these, half came formatted for 512b and half 4k. My Cisco M4 Controller won't work with the 512b formatted drives, it reports them as bad and won't let me do anything with them

    Asus vs Gigabyte Epyc Servers

    Ditto, I'm a Dell and maybe SMC user for our server stuff. Have had OK luck with a ~100 or so the ASrockrack AM4 systems (although support is pretty bad), wanted to check out some other 2nd tier vendors. I know @Patrick has done a number of reviews on the GB servers, so looking for feedback...

    NUC Like Server?

    I haven't, the problem is two fold. I need to have maas being able to use ipmi to reboot a node to provision, and 2nd is these will be deployed in many geo locations, and need ipmi for OOB access when/if needed. Appreciate all the feedback so far folks!

    NUC Like Server?

    1U would work, the easy option is to buy more ASrockrack 1U ryzens, but something like the HX90 is about half the cost of the equiv ASR 1U build.

    NUC Like Server?

    Yea, they are building the AX101 Ryzen in an open case with ASUS motherboards, I have a number of these running already. The HX90 works for us, but I'd like to get 10G and having IPMI/OOB for MAAS provisioning would also be a nice-to-have. I have a large number of the ASRockrack Ryzen servers...

    NUC Like Server?

    Hey Folks, I've been testing a few of the https://store.minisforum.com/products/hx90 for a purpose built application I am working on, but it is missing two things: 1. IPMI/OOB Port 2. 10G Interface I'd like to find something pre-built if I can, but also happy to build my own if I have to...

    I have fallen in love with MooseFS

    I've tested the Quobyte distributed FS too, which is based on XtreemFS, distributed metadata servers, tiering, etc. A bit buggy on the setup, but awesome SDS for sure, but not cheap.

    I have fallen in love with MooseFS

    Nice! Do they have clients for the servers that want to access files or will it work with native nfs clients?

    Aruba MAS series SFP+ & POE+ switches sub-$100

    I haven't seen anything on how deep the buffers are on Miktorik switches when they mix 1/10/25/100G interfaces. Anyone know? This matters on a busy switch for sure.
