I'm currently searching for a CSE-747 SQ chassis (Tower version strongly preferred).
In case you have one lying around that you want to get rid off, please shoot me a PM with pictures and your price.
Shipping to Germany would be required :)
Welcome to the $1,000,000 question topic :D
My OpenVPN install residing on an ESXi 7 host (E5-2695v2, 4C allocated, 8GB RAM) is able to push barely 200Mbps through OpenVPN with Hardware-based VT and IOMMU enabled for the VM. Algorithm is currently AES-128-GCM. Two VMXNET3 NICs are configured...
I'm currently planning a Minio instance that shall reside on a TrueNAS host to act as slow capacity tier for a backup infrastructure.
The current plan consists of a smaller, faster Tier1 instance for daily snapshots, which then, depending on the job type, will be either dropped...
+1 on that
Have a look at the smaller A2x boards. Alternatively check out the X11SBA-LN4F, should have everything you desire for a FW. The predecessor X10SBA runs with the J1900 and is a bit cheaper, but due to the lack of AES-NI encryption (VPN) is slower. Alternatively check out the APU...
tested 16G FC for a while recently, selling my last QLogic 16G FC HBA / 10GbE CNA adapter.
With a switch in the controller firmware you can either set it in 16G FC or 10G mode, so quite flexible.
Comes in original plastic box with both brackets and 2x Qlogic AFBR-57F5MZ-QL 16GBit...
I have a SC836 with three fans connected to the backplane (BPN-SAS2-836EL).
Currently they are connected using some wires with a soldered-in resistor, ending on a 3-Pin connector - they are obviously nowhere close to low spinning.
my question is, is it possible to control the fans connected to...
depends on the base OS of your FW.
But in principle it is possible, as your BMC is independent of your host OS.
Downside of the whole fan speed stuff using ipmitool is that you have to set those values again after every reboot - most ppl do it via cronjobs, check the FreeNAS/TrueNAS forums for...
They got one issue - they physically range into the "airspace" of your adjacent PCI slot - if you don't have any: good
Else, consider this adapter from Gigabyte: CMT4034 (rev. 1.0) Overview | Accessory - GIGABYTE Global
It's quite sophisticated, but by now rare to get. Got a couple of them...
