Would anyone be open to converting my 4x 6018s from IB into 40GBE as a paid project? I've followed this thread on and off for a couple years, and like the MacGyver aspects of the conversion, but have too many other projects already going on. I don't need anything fancy - just a simple 40GBE...
Eaton's "managed" PDUs measure power through each outlet and allow an outlet-by-outlet ability to turn the power on/off. This set of features is Eaton's highest-end PDU.
Managed PDUs can be fairly pricey, especially when new. This listing is a crazy good deal for a brand new, Eaton managed...
This eBay seller was selling C12Ps for $195 + $10/unit shipping but I talked him into $165 BO + $10/unit shipping. He updated the listing to allow my BO and was OK with me sharing it with friends (BO is OK for you also). He previously rejected $160 BO so I would view this as $165+10 or don't...

I've accumulated a little too much hardware so hopefully someone can give it a good home. Checked all prices against eBay so hopefully they seem reasonable. Open to reasonable discounts on quantity.

I am looking for 8x 2.5" drives suitable for 24/7 power-on. I prefer HGST Ultrastars, based on my LFF experiences, but can be flexible. Would like something in the 500GB or larger size. Speed is less important. SATA preferred but SAS may be OK (I have several HBAs sitting around).
For those of us that like the Eaton UPS systems, and I know there are others on this forum in that category, the 9PX6K UPS allows for one or more external batteries to extend the charge capacity of the 6K model (which provides up to 6KVA hence the 6K portion of its name).
