    Supermicro AOC-STGN-I1S $18 shipped

    To my surprise many people considered $40 shipped to be a good price for a dual port Intel 82599 based card. How about just one port for less than half the price then? Supermicro AOC-STGN-I1S Single-port Intel 82599EN 10GbE 10GBase-X Ethernet Card 672042137480 | eBay

    EMC2 KTN STL3 EMPTY RACKS | eBay starting bid $10, ends in 6 days. The lot is listed as "For parts or not working".

    Cheap 40GbE at home - too good to be true?

    This is not a humble brag post - I am genuinely curious if I am missing something. It's been a few weeks since I upgraded my home network to 40Gbps. So far it has been running smoothly and the upgrade process was pretty painless and significantly less expensive comparing to the 1Gbps to 10Gbps...

    Another ConnectX-3 cross-flashing question

    I did not have much experience with high speed networks beyond 10Gbps Ethernet and I was under the impression that any ConnectX-3 with QSFP ports was at least 40GbE capable. But after I finally got myself a 40/56GbE switch (Mellanox SX6012) I quickly found that it was not the case. A few of my...

    pfSense on Dell Edge Gateway 5000

    A family member upgraded their Comcast service to 1Gbps and needed a new router. So I just added another ethernet adapter to an older PC and installed pfSense to get him running.

    Brand preferences for UPS batteries

    I have a couple of APC SUA2200RM2U UPSs which are due for battery replacement. It has been a few years since I shopped for batteries. I used to like Japanese brands. But many of the brands changed ownership, moved factories to China or just disappeared. So I did a quick Ebay search and there...

    Solarflare 5122 vs 6122

    I have been mostly using Mellanox ConnectX2 for my low budget projects. I do not have anything bad to say about those cards other than they tend to run a bit hotter than I would prefer. So for the next project I am willing to try another brand. Solarflare seems to get fair amount of praise...
