You should probably work a little on your wording - since it can be hard to understand whether or not you want to buy or want to sell.
This is done by adding a WTB:/WTS: in your title - also its a good habit to add a flavor, i.e. [EU]/[US].
Power is expensive in Denmark, so even a small homelab runs up into more than $1000 USD per year in power.
The "few" servers I run probably uses around 4-500w/h, which quickly amounts to something, when every kw/h cost around 0.38 USD :-(
I guess you missed the "secure" - and by removing old CPU's without security features it by default becomes a little more secure, since they don't have to cater for old useless stuff and can remove code catering for that.
Its kind of just if a car manufacturer removes wheels from their cars...
A bit unsurprising though - windows 11 is just a patch onto windows 10, so if they broke something they have done something bad. Its not like windows 11 is a new OS, its still the same, just with stuff removed, so its more "secure" and different.
So a pretty good drive, if you have a server with slots for it :-)
Price is decent in my opinion, 8TB of enterprise SSD, with good endurance for 900 USD.
Its a great little board :)
I have had one running my pfsense, and now I have actually made it run a backup esxi 7 server for my backup infrastructure when i take down my main esxi server down for maintenance.
Well, that makes it easy for me - my ancient Ryzen 7 1700 will not be compatible with windows 11 :-) - I mean it ancient with its little more than 4 years of age, surely it would be crazy to support such an ancient CPU.
Just to chip in.
My experience is:
No matter how fast you get your ZFS datastores - esxi will never be able to use all that speed, meaning - if you have a datastore capable of pushing 4GB/s sync writes - and a network that can support that speed - esxi will never use all that bandwidth for a...
Chia people beware - these drives are not good for chia - they have a 1000TBW total, which by their standard warranty of 3 years amounts to 0.9 TB/D - or around 0.5 DWPD for 3 years. And they are also QLC drives as far as I know.
But for regular storage this would be awesome - so good luck with...
I am not questioning the usage of consumer drives as boot drives, more the existance of non-consumer m.2 drives - since I was not aware that any such thing existed because of the tiny form factor would make it hard to put capacitors etc.
