    A cheap but good small managed gigabit switch for homelab

    Are there any serious management features in GSM5212-100NES ProSafe M4100 that are missing from GS108T? I think my final setup will include two GS108T connected together with two links, giving me 12 ports in a very nice form factor. But I'll start with one.

    A cheap but good small managed gigabit switch for homelab

    Hello again. And thanks for your contributions. It seems like the perfect solution would be the M4000-D12G, but I don't want to afford it at the moment. My best bet, to current budget and all other requirements, would be the better 8-port Netgear, that is GS108T. I use a 12 V system, based on a...

    A cheap but good small managed gigabit switch for homelab

    Hello I used search, but could not find an exactly matching thread. So here is a new one. I am looking for a * fanless, * managed * 8 to 12 port switch with * VLAN support (32 will do fine), * link aggregation and * STP support. I do not need PoE or QoS. I think I'll rather buy two...

    I didn't ask for any steering. I didn't ask for any second-guessing. If you demand to do that and not answer any questions, then this simply is no forum for questions. Well, feel free to keep on steering each other and leave me out of it. I had no luck getting answers before showing any...

    Affordable little Xeon workstation

    Affordable little Xeon workstation

    My goal is to have three separate machines, i.e. ESXi, NAS and workstation. I would never seriously consider combining a NAS and a workstation, and I've never heard anyone else doing that. Besides, I see no reason to migrate away from FreeNAS. The intention wasn't actually to avoid buying...

    Affordable little Xeon workstation

    Hello I currently have an Asus P8C-WS with an Ivy Bridge E3-1245 v2 Xeon. It is currently serving as a hackintosh. No sleep, no hibernate, must be forced to power off. But otherwise quite nice. It has 24 GB ECC RAM, but OS X has no MCE support for the chipset. Has seen very little use since...

    Intel Xeon D-1500 Series Discussion

    Now that there are 1518, 1520, 1521, 1527, 1528, 1529, 1531, 1537, 1539, 1540, 1541, 1548, 1557, 1559, 1567, 1571, 1577, 1581 and 1587, are there any other differences between these than the number of cores, the frequency, the TDP or the presence or absence of turbo? Were some of these supposed...
