Edit: These are the former Online.net/Scaleway ARM64 instances. I would avoid ;)
(Pro-tip for equipment decommissioning, remove your DC labels before sending to resellers)
Not sure if this is a great deal, but it's certainly an obscure deal. This is the first time I've seen a Cavium ThunderX...
Last year I bought two Violin Memory VIO-M1-LP PCIe SSDs from an eBay vendor:
Not much information is available on these devices, except some few articles (which read like a press release) from 2013. A year later, Hynix bought Violin's PCIe SSD assets.
I couldn't even find the PCI ID of the...
I recently picked up a TX140 S2 motherboard (D3239) for a song, and got about to powering it. Unfortunately, iRMC reports that the ambient temperature sensor is missing and runs all the fans at 100%.
It seems that Fujitsu include an I2C ambient temperature sensor in the front panel...
Hello everyone. One of my New Year's resolutions this year was to downsize the amount of hardware I have laying around.
Everything will be shipped from France with payment via PayPal or bank transfer. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me a PM. Local pickup is available if you...
I haven't seen anyone post about this so far.
Tobias "TobleMiner" Schramm has designed a passive adapter for HP FlexLOM to use them in a normal PCIe slot.
The design files to have the adapter manufactured (e.g. by JLCPCB) can be found on GitHub: TobleMiner/HPE-FlexibleLOM-adapter

Hi, you may remember me as the guy who is developing a custom firmware for the Meraki MS220 switches. There is a thread here about the current progress, but the tl;dr is "it's going pretty well, all things considered"
Someone on GitHub recently asked me if the MS120 was supported. They...
I am looking for people who are willing to test a FOSS firmware for the Meraki MS220 (MS22, MS42, MS320) series switches.

piospartslap has four Meraki MR52 802.11ac access points for 29,90€, which seems well below average price (judging by other eBay listings): Cisco Meraki MR52 Clound Managed Access Point | eBay
Note that you will probably need a license to use these, and I'm not aware of any alternative...
Looks like someone in Montreal has some socket 1150/C222 Inventec motherboards. Currently there are 6 available:
Inventec 02011G901 600 G Server Motherboard LGA 1150 DDR3 1x Mini SAS Dual GbE | eBay
Note that these have the AST1300 (VGA only, no IPMI).
The seller seems to want $20 to ship...
Seller I follow is selling job lots of HP T620 and T630 thin clients. Maybe useful for anyone looking for quantity. Note that these are job lots so you can only buy the quantity listed. Shipping is listed as £12.00 to the EU (my location). I've purchased several items before from this seller...
A vendor in Poland is selling Rackable half-depth chassis with 12 LFF bays
Newer version (Dual Socket F, plastic drive trays, 3 chassis fans, Mini-SAS connectors on backplane)
Older version (Dual Socket 940, metal drive trays, 2 chassis fans, SATA connectors on backplane)
Haven't seen them this cheap on the EU side of the pond. Sold and shipped by Amazon.co.uk
Thought I would share for anyone who have excess NVMe drives ;)
Definitely an older DAS enclosure, but maybe someone has a lot of 2.5" disks they want to use. Hard to argue with the price:
HP StorageWorks MSA70 SAS / SATA Disk Array für 25x 2.5" Festplatten 418800-B21 | eBay
Not as nice as the HP T620 Plus, since it only has a dual-core APU, but it takes desktop DIMMs and has a PCIe slot. Might be interesting for some.

The seller accepts BO, so I'd try that.
A bit old, and not with the performance of modern NVMe drives, but they're data center quality and at a good price point (IMHO).

Not sure how interesting this will be to people, since POWER8 is a very niche architecture, but anyway I ran into this:
Tyan Rack 2U Server TN71-BP012 1x IBM POWER8 10-Core CPU 2,926 GHz 2x 750Watt

Seems like a good deal for anyone wanting to get their feet...

Hard to believe given the average price of this card!
I ordered one and will update if it's genuine or not.
