    Compellent FS8600 worth in a lab?

    I have been seeing a few of these pop up here and there. Unfortunately unlike their JBOD chassis - these seem to be full SAN setups running FluidFS. My question is - other than assuming these need Dell branded drives - what else would I be missing to get this running as a SAN or enclosure? Or...

    My "simple" AIO server

    I started my life in IT as self-learning and side-projects, with a Dell R710 being a crown jewel of my lab at the time. When I moved I sold the server and downsized to a small PC as a server and a Drobo for RAID storage. But the itch has returned - and even working in a data center hasn't...

    (US-Dallas TX) Dell C1100 lots of 5

    This popped up on my typical searches. They are long in the tooth now by the Xeon E5 standards now - but for $150 for 5 servers with 72GB RAM each... almost worth picking up for just the RAM! Only catch seems to be you need to be able to arrange local pick-up in Dallas TX. Thought I'd pass on...

    Dell CS24-TY (C1100) BIOS update question

    I have been running a Dell CS24-TY (known as the C1100) for the past year. It has some VERY old BIOS and BMC firmware on it, which I wanted to update. Mostly for more stability (seeing a good handful of QPI errors) and for hopefully better BMC functionality. I seem to be running S993A14 BIOS and...
