    HGST Helium 10TB SATA $110

    46462 hours is 5.3 years, and a bit more than I'd like. Thanks for being the guinea pig on this though.

    (ebay) Supermicro SYS-5018D-LNT4

    Can you run iperf when you get it? I'd be curious if it could route 10Gb with that processor.

    EXPIRED fanless Intel® i3 Kaby Lake mini PC for $74.83

    Quick Google says Mint will only install by default the open source drivers, which do not support Quicksync. Some leads in this thread: https://obsproject.com/forum/threads/how-to-use-qsv-vaapi-on-linux-mint.137329/

    EXPIRED fanless Intel® i3 Kaby Lake mini PC for $74.83

    Do you have the right video drivers that support Quicksync?

    Brocade ICX6450-48P $99.99 or best offer shipped

    I'm willing to be they're just being resold at a higher price.

    Huge temperature drops from flipping switch into vertical orientation?

    I'm betting some people moved it out of the rack too to run it vertically.

    [FS] [US] Supermicro X9 + Xeons + DDR3 ECC UDIMM memory

    Moving some of this hardware, I have multiples of most things for redundancy. These setups measured ~30w idle/80w max on my Kill-a-watt iirc, which is respectable while being powerful enough for a fair bit of virtualization. 3 x X9SCi-LN4F (quad 1GbE) - Supermicro | Products | Motherboards |...

    Always on pc for smart home, data storage, personal cloud...

    Linus published that video when he was really new to virtualization. Like REALLY new. He was a Windows boys from head to toe and doubt he touched a *NIX system before that. I would never recommend a system that "required* you to boot off a cheap USB drive (is that still a requirement?). I'm...

    16TB WD Easystore External USB 3.0 Hard Drive $254.99 @ Best Buy

    Not sure why you're so hell bent on this, but the fact is there's no binning on the 16TB drives because they only are releasing three SKUs, and they're all 2.5 million hour MTBF drives. Maybe they sell the crappy drives to Seagate? :) The EDFZ/EMFZ drives have been shown to be 7200 rpm as...

    16TB WD Easystore External USB 3.0 Hard Drive $254.99 @ Best Buy

    The part number is printed on the drive! Surely you've never worked at a company with any sort of ERP system, otherwise you would have never uttered such foolishness. :) There's tons of different reasons to have the same part w/ different prices: different sales channels, different support...

    16TB WD Easystore External USB 3.0 Hard Drive $254.99 @ Best Buy

    Except that article is only really relevant to that specific drive. WD continually rotates what goes into each external drive depending on what's on hand, some are helium, some are air, some are CMR, some are SMR. Luckily for those currently looking to buy a 16TB drive, there's only two SKUs...

    16TB WD Easystore External USB 3.0 Hard Drive $254.99 @ Best Buy

    I have two of these, both came with WD160EMFZ, which are supposedly white label WD Gold/Ultrastar DC HC550 helium drives w/ 2.5 million hr MTBFs. They also report as 5400 rpm, but perform like 7200 rpm drives supposedly, I'm not really in it for the raw speeds though.

    CPU necessary for 1Gbit symmetrical w/ Suricata

    Any input into how much CPU firepower I need for IDS/IPS with Suricata? I know it varies by ruleset, but personal experiences would be helpful. I'm running OPNSense virtualized on Proxmox right now, hosted on a Sandy Bridge E3-1265L with two cores assigned, and I lose about half my throughput...
