    HP DL380 G7 x2 - what to do?

    Hi, I got two HP DL380 G7 with 2 x X5675 @ 3,07 GHZ (6 Core + HT = 24 Threads), 8 x 900GB SAS HDDs and 128 GB RAM each. Is there an easy way to reduce my power footprint? Resell the RAM-Sticks and buy another server - reusing the disks? Those servers require 170 Watt each - for 24/7 it's way...

    I need a SAN...or vSAN..or Shared Storage...or....WTF is this so complex?

    Probably a distributed Storage in combination with a capable Hypervisor is suitable for this case. Gluster + X Ceph + X Regarding PostgreSQL you probably want to jump into Replication with Pacemaker or the project Patroni (Zalando). Regards Markus

    Not really ontopic but the last Windows-Update (1803??) changed the setting to "ON" again. Had this issue with some Intel NUCs I need to power on by WOL - After the update this was not possible anymore (because of the overridden setting...) WTF Microsoft is overwriting my chosen settings...

    2/3 Node extension for HA Home-Server

    I want to keep HA on node-level, so for home use a single PSU should be enough. Regarding the SSDs - you are right, but it's hard to get good SSDs in Germany (or I have no ebay-Luck :())

    Hi guys, I am building a new House and for all of the automation- /media stuff I want (and "need") a suitable HA-solution. Means: At the end of the day there should be a high available virtualization solution (oVirt / ProxMox under testing atm). I already have a quite OK selfbuilt server...

    Remote Access to Home Network

    Probably x2go is another way to go. Beside this a friend of mine is using the already mentioned Guacamole sucessfully.
